Block Party (Mini-Slimline)

Another biweekly challenge is up at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. This is #461 and runs through Thursday, September 23, 2021. After staring at the challenge board for days, I finally decided to go with the double complementary colors on the sample for my own card because these were the colors I preferred. As you can see, the colors are Violet, Blue, Orange, and Yellow. I used the closest match from my cardstock stash.

Using a set of square-shaped dies, I cut the cardstock into squares then into additional shapes and styles - frames, triangles, bars, and other bits, etc. I created five "patchwork" squares (1 1/8") and adhered the squares with foam tape onto a white cardstock card base cut to mini-slimline size. 

I decided not to add a sentiment until I am ready to use the card. The inside was decorated with a few bar-shaped bits. I decided on gray as my neutral color so used some gray metallic studs to finish off the card front. At present, the card can be used in either portrait or landscape orientation.

The Design Team welcomes you to play along with our challenge by visiting our Blog #461. A new biweekly challenge begins every Friday morning so there is always an active challenge underway.
