Thanks for Being You - Fun Fold


The biweekly challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare #409 is up on the blog beginning today, Friday, August 28, and runs through Thursday, September 10, 2020. This color challenge requires your choice of three or more colors from the board below. You may also use black and white but no other colors may be added. If you do not have the exact color, then simply use the closest match from your stash. I decided on Smoothie, Nectarine, Lagoon, Peacock, and Mink.

I enjoy making fun fold cards so used the Double Z Fold. I cut the various papers and adhered them to each Z-folded cardstock piece then attached them together. The stamping was done on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers before being fussy cut. Using foam tape, the elements were added. The sentiment was stamped and punched then added. Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers along with a few gemstones.

If you're looking for a way to express yourself in color then this challenge is for you. All you need to do is visit the CD409 Blog and create!
