Olive and Tangerine

Playing along this week with the Less is More blog challenge using the colors Olive and Tangerine. I love this combination and was excited to experiment with different design ideas.

For my first card I used Distress Oxides in both Peeled Paint, for the Olive color, and a blend of Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple to get a rich Tangerine. The leaves are from The Ink Road as are the sparkly embellishments. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment, from Simon Says Stamp's CZ Design All Caps set, with white embossing powder on black cardstock. The Friend die is from My Favorite Things, cut from green card stock and embellished with a little touch from my Gelly Roll glitter pen. I die-cut the frame and mounted it on my card using double-stick foam strips to add dimension.


  1. This is a lovely birthday card, Kathy. Great attention to colour blends to get the rich tones of tangerine. Fun design with friend hanging off the edge. Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x

  2. A really beautiful card Kathy. Love all the little details like the touch of glitter on the sentiment, the sparkly embellishments and the pretty leaves. Gorgeous blending too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
