Color My Heart: Dare #12

This weeks dare at Color My Heart is to use Hollyhock, Blush and Olive.  So, one part of the challenge was to use a single layer of card stock.  I had to sacrifice my possible bonus points because I was so excited to try this Artiste cut with this color combination.  Here is what I created:

I may look complicated, but it is not.

If you look at the Father's Day suite found on page 75 of the Artiste Handbook you will find the 2 cuts required to make this pattern. 

  • The Blush card stock is Accent 1 ( no shift cut) 
  • The Olive is an Accent 2 (shift cut).  
  • Both the Blush and the Olive are layered on Hollyhock
  • These three layers are mounted on Olive

To add a bit more fun, I used White Daisy Brads to accentuate the argyle pattern.

The sentiment is found on B1332 Good Times.  It is stamped onto a dimensional element in Olive Ink

If you make an argyle card, please let me know, I'd love to see it!
