Hello and welcome. Today, my blog post is about making masculine cards and I\’ve chosen to do a color blocking background. Fun, bright and eye-catching.
I started by cutting four 2×2 squares from brightly colored card stock. My inspiration came from Jennifer Rzasa and her class on Pop Art Color Blocking. Once the squares were cut, I taped them together, trimmed the edges for a nice even line and then backed with craft foam for dimension.
Next, I die cut the \”T\” from bright blue card stock and the \”thanks\” from lavender cardstock. I die-cut each three times and then carefully glued them together for nice dimension. I initially was going to back them with foam but didn\’t like the white shadow which I thought distracted from all the bright bold colors.
I made a 4 1/4\” x 4 1/4\” card base and then attached the color blocked panel. I weighted it for a few minutes with an acrylic block

6 shades of brightly colored card stock
white cardstock for base.
I am also playing along with: Try It On Tuesday \”Cut It Out!\” Challenge This card is all about cutting as every element was either cut with a paper trimmer or die cut.
I really like how the card turned out and think I will do some more color blocking in the near future.
I am so pleased that you stopped by!
