After some big absence, I am slowly getting back into action now. Today I have a fairly simple but colorful card to share. One of the super easy ways to add color to your cards is to use a colorful patterned paper for the panel. The Lawn Fawn perfectly plaid rainbow petite paper pack is the perfect fit.
I was making this card for a guy in my team, so I decided to not add flowers or anything girly on top. I know he has a cat, so I added a cat that wobbles just for a fun touch. Here’re the steps that I did
- Stamped and lightly watercolored a cat from the SSS Baby Party Animals stamp set and cut it out with a matching die.
- Used a foiled blue paper to die cut the word You and also some tiny little stars – both dies from Simon Says Stamp.
- Stamped and cut out a sentiment panel that says, “are pretty amazing” in matching blue ink.
- Cut out a panel from the rainbow paper to cover my entire card front. My card is a A2 top folding landscape card made with black cardstock.
- Rounded the corners on the rainbow panel as well as the card front and adhered them together. Also added washi tape at the top for little bit of extra interest.
- Adhered the die cut word You, the sentiment strip to the rainbow panel.
- For adhering the cat, I first decided to use the action wobble that came in April SSS Card kit, but that was giving too much height to the cat and did not look balanced. So I fan folded a tiny piece of paper, attached one end of it to the back of cat and the other to the card front for a simple diy wobble ;-)
- Finally I scattered three little stars around and called the project done.
Well, after all the days of being relatively inactive crafting wise, I am struggling a bit with jumping up my mojo. Funnily enough, I am not struggling with ideas to create stuff, but find myself dragging my feet when it comes to writing down blog posts. (So right now, I am a crafter with a writer’s block! It is a thing!) I promise, I will work my hardest to get through this and get back onto track. Thanks so much for your patience with me.
