Color Blocking... Twice

Hi and happy Tuesday!

I hope you're having a wonderful day! :-)

Today's cards are made with some leftover card stock strips and only one stamp.

I took two strips of each color and made a color blocking background with them. I was so happy to find that the four strips lined up and covered the front of a card perfectly, no extra trimming was needed! :-)

For my first card, I went with yellow and purple for the background and the flower image stamped in black and clear embossed for extra detail.

The second card has a softer feel with light yellow and light pool card stock strips. I stamped the flower image in grey ink instead of black to match the softer background. My placement is a bit off on this card, but I still like it. ;-)

I really like how both cards turned out! Which one do you like the best?  :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
