Cards in Envy - Purple & Green

Welcome to the newest card challenge from Cards in Envy. It's a color theme this time, Purple & Green. This would be super fun for a Halloween card. I chose to make a non-seasonal card, although the paper pad is Halloween themed. I used this darling dragon stamp set from My Favorite Things. Since Cards in Envy cards need to stay fairly flat so no extra postage is needed for mailing, I only used a little bit of dimension with Tombow Xtreme tabs. And instead of using thick and bulky brads, I simply die cut some small circles and added Glossy Accents giving them the look of enamel bling.

Paper - Doodlebug - Halloween Parade and Ghouls & Goodies collections
Stamps - My Favorite Things
Die cuts - My Favorite Things
Markers - Copic
Ink - Memento and Versafine
Glossy Accents

I hope you have time to play with us over at Cards in Envy. Just remember, cards need to be flat enough to mail, so no thicker than 1/4".

Some of my favorite and commonly used crafting tools:
Tonic Studios guillotine paper trimmer
Scotch ATG (Advanced Tape Glider) glue gun
Sizzix BIGkick die cut machine
We R Memory Keepers brad setter and piercing tool
We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Scotch Mounting Tape 3/4"
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive liquid glue
MISTI stamping tool
Accent Opaque Digital 100# cover weight paper for card bases
