Happy Retirement - Color Dare #309


This is my ColorMyHeart Color Dare #309 DT project using all the colors in the Twisted TicTacToe for CTMH retired colors.  I really had a hard time choosing only (3) favorites because I truly love them all.  I have made several box cards but used the tutorial on You Tube "Card in a Box" by Anna Kennedy Juda for this particular card.   






We use CTMH color names for reference... however, you are welcome to use any products as long as you match closest to the colors below. No additional colors except those on the color palette.  New Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use; however if they are included in the challenge graphic they MUST be used in your creation.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for this challenge. Please join us...we would love to see the projects you create. This Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks AND you still have time to enter in our previous Color Dare #308 Click Here.  


Additional photos to show all the colors from back, front, and the close card showing the under flaps with balance of colors.  Then the balloons were just some of the selected pattern papers from Paper Fundamentals in some of the same colors.  Sentiment and Bow added.

I've not tried to make a 'card in a box' yet. I think I should try. Yours is beautiful. I love the embossing.

So many beautiful colours in this gorgeous pop up card. I love all the embossing too!

Great way to showcase all the retired colours in one project. Love the embossing and the use of the OLD Fundamental papers (a collection that we were both very sorry to see retire...) The balloons are a great way to represent the "celebration" concept. Super idea!

I really like the embossing on the Box Card. I need to do that more! Very Pretty!
