I was recently challenged by my friend and upline, Dawn Olchefske, to take a few pieces from the Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack, combine them with a few pieces of coordinating product and create a card.

Sounds a little like those cooking shows where they give you some ingredients and expect you to create a meal.

Thankfully, the card pieces were not as obscure as some of the ingredients I’ve seen on the cooking shows.

The pieces I had to play with were:

  • Crushed Curry card base (4-1/2″ x 11″)
  • some Glitter Enamel Dots
  • approximately 18″ Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding
  • 3 pieces from the Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack

Boy, I wish I had taken a picture of the pieces before I started cutting things up!

But…here is the final project!

Comparable to a gourmet meal?

Absolutely NOT.

And I probably won’t win any awards but I am pleased with the final outcome.

This project gave me an opportunity to play with some products that I do not currently have in my personal craft stash as well as a chance to push myself to use a color (Crushed Curry) I don’t generally reach for when creating.

Here is an up close and personal peek at the Glitter Enamel Dots and some of the details.
