5 Card Color Combinations Plus Holiday Paper Shares

Dinosaur Bridge Card

Hello Friends,

I shared with you a video on How to  Make Bridge Card a few weeks ago.  Bridge Cards are simple  3-D Cards that will fold flat for mailing.  You can catch the Bridge Card Tutorial here.  But today, let's talk about color combination ideas.  For all 5 of today's cards, I took my cue from my Designer Paper. 

For our first dinosaur card, I used the Dinoroar Designer Paper by Stampin' Up!.  Each pack of Stampin' Up! the designer paper lists the colors in the paper.  Dinoroar Designer Paper includes Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Old Olive, Pineapple Punch, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, and Whisper White.  So for my first card, I used Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick and Pretty Peacock card stock and inks.  I also used the Grandma's House stamp set and my Hand-Lettered Prose dies for my kisses and hugs and to spell out Nana.



For my second Dinoroar Bridge Card, I chose Old Olive, Pretty Peacock, Mango Melody, and Lovely Lipstick.


And for my third Dinosaur Bridge card, I chose to use Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Mango Melody and Lovely Lipstick for my color combo.

How to Make a Bridge Card

For cards 4 and 5, I used the Follow Your Art Designer Paper by Stampin' Up! which lists Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, and Whisper White.  For card number 4 I choose Calypso Coral, Pacific Point and Basic Gray for my color combination.  My hearts were cut with the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  Are you beginning to see just how easy it is to come up with color combinations for your cards with Designer Paper?

And finally, card number 5 sports Pacific Point, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, and Basic Gray.
