K Werner Colour Challenge #47 & SU's TLC210 Crimped Envelope Pocket Card

I made this card for Kristina's Colour Challenge this week and SU's Technique Lover's Challenge TLC210 Crimped Envelope Pocket Card. As I had just received my new In Colour Stamp Pads from Stampin Up,I was able to use Tangerine Tango which I really love, although I wasn't sure about it when I placed my order. The stamp set is a Level 2 Hostess Set called Rustic Rooster. Both items will feature in the new Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalogue for 2009/2010 available on 1st April, 2009.
The main part of this card is an envelope, decorated and crimped to create a pocket card. You can find the instructions in the Resource Section on Splitcoast Stampers. I rocked and rolled the Tangerine Tango stamp pad on the rooster and then coloured it in with the Chocolate Chip and So Saffron Markers, huffed & puffed to re moisten the stamp and stamped the image. I used my cutter tool to distress the edges of the card and added the two brads. I used my Martha Stewart Daisy punch to do the border on the top and then cut it to fit the top. The main part was stamped with En Francais BG and then randomly stamped with the other two stamps before crimping. I cut the tag with my Cuttlebug die and then stamped for you and the feathery flourish in so Saffron on it. I had a lot of fun making the card and it was very easy to create.

I am catching up on some challenges that I needed to post. I stamped the Hunny Bunny image from Whipper Snapper Designs three times for these cards, it just happened that it suited all three layout's so I created them in similar colours and applied different elements.
