I used the Well Written dies from the Annual Catalog to cut the "welcome" greeting from Basic Black cardstock. I lined this up with the bottom left edge of the gray bar to balance the stars that are grouped on the right side of the card. Finally, I tied a simple bow using White Baker's Twine and mounted my image on Basic Black cardstock and then on a Coastal Cabana card base.
When I finished, I realized I hadn't used a single rubber stamp! Dies are wonderful for creating dramatic cards quickly and easily. I think I'll make another rubber stamp-free card for Wednesday - maybe I can keep the trend up all week!
I'd love to see cards you made without using rubber stamps or cards inspired by this color challenge. Leave your comments below.
