One Card – Two Looks!

I am super excited to share this new monthly feature with you, One Card – Two Looks!

We all do it, we make one card and then with little changes, such as colour, we create another card and it gives it a whole new look!

This month I am featuring a card made with the made with parts of the Colour Theory Suite.


Isn’t it amazing how using different colours gives this card a whole new look!

Here are the instructions to make this card:

  1. Cut your card bases at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”
  2. Using the Colour Theory Designer Theory Paper (DSP), cut at 5 ¼” x 3″.  This will allow you to make 2 cards per sheet of paper.
  3. Once the DSP is cut,  sponge with Tangerine Tango on the Crushed Curry piece and Berry Burst on the Berry Burst piece to create the sunset effect.
  4. The sea piece is Dapper Denim DSP,  which you tear to create the white edge.
  5. The sand piece is Crumb Cake card stock, tear and sponge around with Soft Suede. Once sponged, cover with Tombo glue and dip into sand.
  6. Layer all the pieces together to create your background and glue onto your card base.
  7.  I stamped the sentiments in Momento Black ink and Berry Burst ink.
  8. I then cut the chair from Whisper White and Rose Red using the Seasonal Layers Thinlet Dies.
  9. I then adhered it to my card using Tombo glue or you can use Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some height.

Here are some of the products I used to created these cards:

  1. I just LOVE the one card – two looks piece. You originally showed me how to make the one card at your class but now I can make two! Both with a different look. I must buy the DSP to make them both along with the ink. They are so much fun to make using sand from our beach at the cottage. Thanks for the inspiration and the beautiful designs!


    • Thanks Debbie, for your super kind words! This is one of my favorite sets to work with, and I LOVE how the different colors evoke a totally different feel!
