Kickstand Card


This card is a double challenge for the Sketch and Limited Supply Challenge from last Friday. The Sketch is called a kickstand since the bottom panel stands out like a kickstand in a way. I learned the hard way this is not the ideal card layout to use when you'd like to write more than a line or two. Since the bottom part of the card is missing it leaves only a little bit of room for the message. The second challenge this uses was using no white or vanilla shades of cardstock which is something that admittedly I use on every card I think. It was hard to come up with an idea for this which is why I'm just now participating in a challenge that was posted last Friday!
For my Neutral pieces I used Blush Blossom, including the flowers which were stamped and then cut out. For the Taken With Teal piece I scalloped the edge using the small corner rounder. This was a simple card to throw together, the challenge was working with a layout where the bottom was really the focal point. The flowers are filled with blue stickels that came in a variety pack so I'm not clear on the exact name of the color.

Stamps: Stampin' Up!'s Priceless and It's Your Birthday
Paper: Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom
Inks: Taken with Teal and Certainly Celery
Accessories:Stickles & Celery Grosgrain
