Festive Friday Challenge #29 - Stampin' Up! Button Buddies

Hello Stampin' friends!

Today's Festive Friday Challenge card plays with the colours of Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise.....bright & fun!

For my card, I used my acrylic block for some 'colour blocking'....I stamped it off twice onto my grid paper then stamped on to the cardstock. I found that the blocks pick up a lot of colour so the only way to make them a bit more 'transparent' is to stamp them off a couple of times. I used the cute snowman from Stampin' Up! Button Buddies to stamp the images on each 'block'. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I wanted to get a bit of a 1950s/ 1960s look with the card.....thoughts??? Is it too clean & simple? I made another card with a Basic Black mat layer around the main image but it drew away from the 'lightness' of the card so I went with all white and no matting.

Materials used:
Stamps - Button Buddies, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
Cardstock - Whisper White
Tools - Stampin' Up! Acrylic Block, Stamp-a-majig, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Cutter, Dimensionals
