Pink and brown colour combo

Good morning!

I’m up on the papermilldirect Blog today showing you how to create this card using a pink and brown colour combination. I love using pink and brown I think the colours look so pretty together.

The products I used are:

White Card Hammered 255gsm

Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm

Pink Plain Card 290gsm

Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml

Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm

• Love you die cut

• Stamps

• Copic markers

• Sequins

• Twine

• Nuvo drops

• small heart die

• Pink pigment ink and a sponge

• white embossing powder

• heat gun

To start with I got a piece of White Card Hammered 255gsm and cut this down to make my card base. I then folded this in half. I made my card front a piece of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm.

You will need to stick the card front onto your card base I used Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I die cut the words love you and stamped my images using my favourite White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. Once I coloured the images in and cut them out, I added some pink pigment ink to the love you words. You can do this with a sponge. I adhered the words and images to my card front using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

For the heat embossed sentiment I used a piece of Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm, which I added some white embossing powder to and set with a heat gun. I then added this below the love you die cut using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I also added a small heart die cut using Pink Plain Card 290gsm.

To finish the card I added some sequins and nuvo drops. I also added some pink twine at the top of my card. For the pink envelope I used a piece of Pink Plain Card 290gsm and made an envelope. I think cards look so much nicer in a coloured envelope and my family love receiving them. Papermill Direct have so many pretty envelopes to choose from.

I hope you have fun making this pink and brown colour combination card, I had so much fun making it!
