PTI January Blog Hop and CR84FN46 Color Challenge


It's not often that I am able to make one card and be able to submit it for two challenges, but the stars must have been aligned just right for me today, because I have a card to share for two challenges.
First, this is January's PTI monthly blog hop.  Our challenge this month was to share one of our favorite cards of 2011 and to re-create it in a new or different form.
The challenge for the CR84FN46 Color Challenge is to use the colors of light pink, yellow and a neutral.
One of my favorite cards of 2011 was this card made in July.
 I made this specifically as a masculine card, using kraft as my base and a very simple brown, navy, kraft color combination.  I used a simple polka dot embossing folder and a diecut star as an embellishement.
For my re-make card, I decided to use the CR84FN#46 colors of light pink and yellow to make this card into a "girly-girl" card.
I used the same background Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamp called Birthday Words stamped in sweet blush ink on lemon tart cardstock.  I used a pink scalloped diecut in place of the circle diecut from the inspiration card and embossed it with a cute cupcake embossing folder.  Us girls love our cupcakes, don't we?  I changed the color of twine to pink and white and stamped a little heart background on the diecut label, used a different embossing folder on the top layer and instead of a star, stamped a cute cupcake from Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame-It.  Of course that cupcake had to have some chunky glitter to add sparkle to my feminine card.  I had a great time switching up one of my favorite cards and now have both a masculine and feminine version to use when I need a send a quick birthday card.
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop and also, check out all the great pink, yellow and neutral creations at CR84FN

Awesome to see the change from masculine to feminine. Both versions are really effective.

Great cards! Yellow and pink are certainly girly, but I as a guy I'm partial to the Kraft and brown. I do love the design. I might have to case it!
