JAI #218

The retiring In Colours are the inspiration for this latest challenge from Just Add Ink. They are some of my favourite colours so it was not hard to make  card using them as the focus. In fact I have been using these colours a lot lately trying to use up some of the DSP.
the problem in fact is in deciding which card to enter!

I love patchwork cards and my previous designs used the 1" square, but I have made the latex ones using the hexagon punch.. After they are  adhered to the base square I run them through the Bigshot with an Embossing Folder to give the look of a quilted piece before embellishing.
These ones use Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit.

My other card for this challenge is a flower Box card - it stands up like a flower box but folds flat to fit inane envelope- however it is not as bulky as a card in a box.
I have taught these in a class and they were very popular.
Raspberry ripple, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit.( with Midnight Muse as the background)


  1. You've used these colours beautifully, Elizabeth. Great idea to use the Hexagon punch for your quilted card (I must try that!); it looks great. The box card is lovely, too. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. OMG! I am in awe of this card-in-a-box CARD CREATION! Absolutely beautiful and fun! Love it; TYFS!!! Donna (SC/pug)! :)

  3. They are both lovely Liz. Your hexagon embossed cards are so pretty, l love the patchwork quilt effect and your card in a box style is great and so different to the other type of card in a box. Great collection! Thanks for entering at Just Add Ink.

    1. Thanks so much Ladies for your kind words. : ) E

  4. The are great. I like how you have mixed up the textured hexagons and patterned hexagons. Chantell JAI

  5. It's amazing how well the hexagon looks in patchwork!! I love all the little 'bits' you've added too.
    Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week.
