Happy Everything Color-Blocking Card

Today I have a bit of a different card for you today, it's what I'm calling a color-blocking card. According to Wikipedia, "Color-Blocking" is the thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. I love this idea and thought it would be really fun to make a spring card this way. 

The colors used for this color-blocking technique are:
Card Recipe:
(Don't forget to see the complete product showcase at the bottom of this post)

First, cut your cardstock layers as follows:
  • Highland Heather Layer: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
  • Pear Pizzazz Layer: 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Flirty Flamingo Layer: 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Fold the Highland Heather Layer in half and burnish with your bone folder. Next, layer the Pear Pizzazz and Flirty Flamingo layers as shown using Snail Adhesive.

Next, stamp your lamb from the Welcome Easter Cling Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Use the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies to punch out the lamb and color him as shown using the following Stampin' Blends: Light Flirty Flamingo, Light Granny Apply Green, Light Highland Heather and the Smoky Slate Combo.

Stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Highland Heather Stampin' Ink and then punch out with the frame from the Ornate Frames Dies.

Cut an approximately 4 1/2" piece of Purple Posy 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon and angle the ends as shown. Apply Tear & Tape to the back of the ribbon and adhere as shown.

On the back of the sentiment and lamb pieces, apply Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere as shown. You're card is now done!
