The Card Concept #117- Summer Swirls

It's time for another The Card Concept challenge! I created my card based on the inspiration photo below. Don't get dizzy looking at it. :) The primary colours and graphic design are what inspired my clean and graphic card today.

Primary colours are just so fresh and fun in my opinion. They can sometimes give a project a kindergarten vibe, so for my card I used alcohol inks to keep the general look classy and grown up. Now that I look at it though...wouldn't it be great as a teacher thank you?  

I created an alcohol ink panel using red, blue and yellow inks and once dry, die cut it using the Bold Stripes Cover-up die from My Favorite Things. The inked pieces were placed into a white panel cut using the same die and adhered to a white A2 card base. The Big Thanks sentiment from Concord & 9th was cut from black cardstock twice, glued together and popped up using foam tape right on the card. I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter all over the sentiment for sparkle and shine. 

Head on over to The Card Concept blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired and what styles they used on their cards. Play along with us using any of the styles we highlight...I can't wait to see what you come up with!
