LLF Colour Combo

We have a fab colour combo as our challenge at Lili’s Little Fairies this week - ‘Purple & Yellow’. We also have a fab sponsor who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their online store.


Purple & yellow are not colours I would normally put together, having said that I’ve just realised that my last card was purple & yellow! Anyway, they go rather nicely, but I decided to do something a bit different from my normal square scalloped card and when I saw this tutorial at Beccy’s Place, I had to have a go. I must admit I had a couple of tries as my Cuttlebug chewed up the first 2 attempts, I realised that I was asking a bit much trying to put through 2 layers of card and some paper! So I changed my white card to a thinner one, changed my Kraft for some thinner Coredinations and it went through fine! I didn’t have the die that Beccy used (it’s been added to my wish list!), but I thought the ‘Labels 25’ from Spellbinders was a good substitute. The photo’s not bad (my son’s camera phone again), but I wish I’d realised that the flourish had got a bit squished!
