Hi, everyone. I’ve got a quick, simple card to share today. I was at my local craft store last week and bought a sweet little die set I just had to use on today’s card.
The die set is this bunting set from Dovecraft. I diecut all three dies in three different colors of Papertrey Ink cardstock (Hibiscus Burst, Enchanted Evening, and Soft Stone), and layered two of each. I usually layer up more than two, but I’m running low on pink scraps and didn’t want to use the pink cardbases I’ve made.
I glued all the triangles to my white cardbase a little haphazardly, added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to embellish a tiny bit and stamped a sentiment from an Inky Wings stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black and called it done.
Another Wednesday, which means it’s Mo Manning time, and it also happens to be July already. What happened to June? It really flew by faster than ever. I actually have a Christmas card to share today, nothing is as natural as Christmas in July, right?
I’ve featured Gingerbread Man! on this card. It happens to be a free digital image, and I’ve flipped it, repeated it and rotated it all across a background before using four different brown Copics (E27, 25, 23 and 21) in addition to T2 to color all of them. Some are more burnt than others, I didn’t want a uniform look.
Once my panel of gingerbread men was finished, I glued it straight to a cardbase made from Dark Chocolate cardstock from Papertrey Ink before adding a diecut sentiment heart with foam tape. I used Pure Poppy cardstock (also Papertrey Ink) and a Papirdesign die.
I scattered a few Papirdesign enamel dots for my finishing touch.
