Colour Me…! #54 – Thankful Anchor

Any occasion, Cards, Challenges, Masculine Card, Non traditional

Welcome to another week at Colour Me…! I was blown away with the talent of the submissions for last week’s challenge and can’t wait to see what you come up with for this one! This week’s combo gave me nautical vibes so I just ran with it. The challenge is to create a card using only red and blue.

CMCC54My card this week comes complete with it’s own video–

I created an 4Bar card (4 7/8 x 3 1/2″) with a simple striped watercolor background.

I cut out the anchor shape using my Silhouette Portait cutting machine and dry embossed it with a dot embossing folder. I wanted to add some extra dimension and detail so I used a blue marker to colour some pearls the right blue before adhering them onto my card.



Make sure to check out the rest of the design team. They are chock-full of inspiration.

& January guest designer, Tenia Nelson

  1. What a great masculine card, Julia! With a change of sentiment this card could be used for nearly any occasion. Off to watch your video now!

    1. Hope you enjoyed the vid! I agree with you about the sentiment! I have to admit that when I’m crafting for myself, I often leave off the sentiment until I actually give the card so that I can customize as the need comes up!
