Graduated Color Card by Judy Jackson

I created the A2 sized glossy card stock with the Graduated Color technique from the April/May 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. I used a lace stamp from Stampin' Up! I used a Spellbinder die to cut out the special shape I wanted. I wanted to used this altered puzzle piece on this card and so chose my colors accordingly. The razzleberry background was stamped with a large stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I wrapped a wide piece of ribbon around this piece of card stock and layered it. I placed a piece of gold lace along the edge of the ribbon. With all of the other embellishments on the puzzle piece I felt adding another piece of card stock -- or even vellum -- would be just too much so I stamped the sentiment on the razzleberry card stock. Unfortunately, even after several attempts to get a clear sharp image, it just didn't happen. the verse reads, "The memories we gather and give connect our lives as long as we live..." and is from SmART Works. Other stamps used on the puzzle piece are from Stampsmith, Hero Arts, and Heather's Stamping Haven.
I hope you have a fun creative day!
Judy Jackson

This is a great card, Judy. I love the deep, rich maroon/reds with just the right touch of pink. Lovely layout and design, embellished beautifully!
