Plaid Birthday

I thought a while on the Navy and Lime Green colors for the Color Hues challenge, knowing I needed to turn it into a birthday card for the Seize the Birthday challenge. These are not colors I generally mix, but I finally found a way to mix them.

The plaid background was created with a plaid stencil from Newton’s Nook. I inked it with GKD Key Lime ink, then flipped the stencil and inked it again with GKD In the Navy ink. It made an interesting background. Next I die cut the Big Happy Birthday die from Lawn Fawn three times with this very bright green cardstock from Hobby Lobby. It is close to the Key Lime color I used for the ink. I paired this green with a navy cardstock also from Hobby Lobby. I think this will make a nice masculine card to add to my stash, however, if a women loves green, this would work her as well.

  1. What a great way to use those colors. Love the plaid. It’s always good to have another masculine card, but it would work for anyone.

  2. Love the plaid background and I agree with the other comments that it works for either sex. You have a great take on this challenge.

    1. Thank you! I did enjoy creating this. I decided that the background was busy enough that it didn’t need anything else.

  3. Love the plaid and the lime green and navy work together perfectly on your card. Your large word die in the lime green completes this card. Perfect for a guy or girl.

  4. What a fun stencil to have in your stash, Lisa! This card turned out great! Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday and Color Hues for our collaboration challenge.

    1. Thanks! I thought about this challenge for quite a while before I looked at my stencils. Then the lightbulb went on in my head. I love what the stencil was able to create. I need to play with my stencils more.

    1. I thought a long time about what background could work, then I looked at my stencils. I like how it turned out. I need to use more stencils and see what I can create. Thanks!
