Color of the Week – Mint Macaron

Oct 3, 2018 | Color of the Week, Colors

Welcome to another week of my Color of the Week series!  Mint Macaron is the featured color this time.  This is one of the returning In Colors that is now part of the Subtles Color Collection, and I am so glad it’s back!  This post and all the other color posts I will be sharing throughout the year can be found over on this section of the blog.  

Make sure to follow along here on the blog or on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  I will be using the hashtag #makewithcolor throughout the year when I share color projects and combinations and ask that you join in too!  All you have to do is tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag so I can see what you are sharing. I’m so excited to bring you color inspiration all year long!

CARD INSPIRATION

Using the same color cardstock for the base of the card and for the main layer is an easy way to add dimension to a simple yet stunning card.  Keep reading for the instructions for making this week’s card.

For the card base, use a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock, scored and folded at 4-1/4″ on the long side.  Emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Rub the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush over the embossed image.  Add this piece to the card base with some Dimensionals.

Stamp the “Simply thankful” section of the stamp from the Country Home stamp set on a 1″ wide strip of Whisper White cardstock with Mint Macaron ink.  Ink the stamp carefully so you do not get ink on the other words, or use the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up only the portion needed.  Banner cut the right side of the White cardstock piece.  Add this piece to the card with adhesive on the back left side and a couple Dimensionals on the back right side (the banner cut end).  This makes it look like the banner piece is coming off the card.
