SU Affection Collection

It’s time for another Black Tie Challenge at the Dynamic Duos # 95. This week we are mixing More Mustard with Basic Black and an option of dry embossing.


I was so sad when SU retired More Mustard- it was the perfect fall color. I forgot to stock up on the More Mustard card stock because I thought I had a few packs but found out later that I had 3 of Not Quite Navy that was being retired as well. And of course, I ordered a Not Quite Navy before retirement. Just can’t win in this card (stock) game…lol

I did however have some pretty More Mustard DSP that used to come in color packs so I used it. I liked the vintage wallpaper pattern so I mixed it with the retired SU Affection Collection and some pearls. In person, the black ink is dark and rich but the photo has it a bit washed out. When I played with it in photoshop the More Mustard went crazy. So you will have to take my word for it…oh, and the image that has embossing around the edge is perfectly placed on the black diamond but the photo angle makes it look off….blah, blah, blah…thanks for looking and reading my ramblings! Don’t forget to ahead over to see what the fantastic Design Team members came up this week…

  1. Love your (relatively) simple and elegant card, Cindy! I know what you mean about photos not doing things justice, and the endless “putzing in Photoshop” which can ensue… The two-toned stamping on the sentiment panel looks awesome.

  2. I love when we get to make beautiful projects with our retired goodies. Yours is perfect! I only have about a half pack of More Mustard card stock. It was nice to use up my “stuff” for this challenge.

  3. I love this card Cindy!! The More Mustard DSP looks great with the layered Basic Black and the embossed/stamped focal panel looks wonderful as well- so gorgeous!!
