Colour & Contour Cards


Picture of 2 different hand made cards made using the Colour and Contour Set from Stampin' Up!

I have been playing with the Color and Contour stamps set and dies from Stampin' Up! to make 2 very different cards.

Hand made card together with the Color and Contour stamp set from Stampin' Up! used to make the card.

White on White

I love a white on white card it really looks sophisticated! The die set that goes with the Color and Contour stamps features several frames and I have used two of the dies to create this layering effect.

Old Olive and Mossy Meadow

This card gives a completely different effect with the rich and wonderful Misty Moonlight highlights. A simple layered card with a ribbon tied in a square not. Although the layouts in both cards are similar the finished effect is completely different.
