Woodware Design team Challenge - Summer Fun

Well I've finally completed all my cards for the catalogue... 53 cards! Very pleased with all my hard work.

So back to this week's challenge. Summer fun for me conjured up lots of ideas but I went for a summer palette of colours and applied it to summer clothes. What you might wear to look glam walking along the pier or to a race meeting.

I decided to use black Peel Off's [my favourite as you already know] to make the colours really pop. I limited my colour palette to three colours : blue, yellow and orange.

The Peel off's are: Françoise Collection
98526 Shoes, 98531 handbags, 98528 Hats and Stampendous 90724 Tiny Messages

 I coloured in the hat, shoes and bag on white card then carefully cut them out leaving a small border. I've use a white pen the highlight the images.

The dress was made using a large Woodware punch:
Evening Dress 2 839-28 
I punched it three times from blue, orange and white card and layered up the dresses. I used waste dots from the Peel Off's sheets to create the polka dot effect.

The background is created from squares and rectangles that have had the corners rounded off. It shows how you do not always have to use patterned paper in the background. The card is from the Woodware Recycled range.

I completed the card by using some of the flowers that come as extra on the Peel off's sheets. I also added some ribbon and a nice chunky button.

If you have enjoyed this card why not pop along to the Woodware blog to see what the other design team members have created. Lots of inspiration to be had!

    Love the summer colours that you have used in your card and also the way you have done the dress. All we need now is some nice weather to put us in the summer mood!

  4. Really lovely Summer card, hope we get the weather to match. Great idea. You don't say but I presume you have used glossy accents as well as on my screen it looks as if you have.
