Hope you had a good start to the week! ^_^
I made this birthday card for a good friend of mine at work. It's her birthday today and the card has already been dropped off at her house yesterday! Hooray!
I really enjoy making clean and simple style cards these days and trying to learn to like the white space. But Gosh! It is not that easy. It is a torture not to add anything at the top of the card. It looks bare and I really wanted to wrap a twine around it!! I forced myself to stop right there and try to enjoy the white area of the card. I guess it wasn't that bad after all. After staring at it for a short while, I really like how it leads your eyes to focus on the main image rather than having too many other elements to distract you.
I wanted to highlight the little fox image, which is from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods stamp set, so I cut a circular window in my card. I also used the Grassy Border Die from Lawn Fawn to cut two different tones of green grass. One I adhered to the card base itself, the other I raised up with foam pads to give dimension.
I used Copic Ciao marker pens to colour the image and highlighted the stamp images with Stickles glitter glue and Glossy Accents.
Inside of the card simply echoes the look and the colours from the outside. The red dotted washi tape is adhered at the same height as it is on the outside of the card. This creates a continuous look. The sentiment is from Avery Elle:Cake & Candles set. To continue the look inside, I stamped the two little hearts in the same orange and yellow colours from the outside. I hope you like the card!
The following challenges inspired me to make this card:
- CAS(E) this Sketch #93 : Beautiful layout!
- Lawnscaping Challenge- Critters Galore: Used the little fox image from Lawn Fawn.
- The Cutie Pie Challenge #78- Cute with Shades of Autumn: I used a cute fox image with autumn colours of red, yellow, orange and purple.
Love to see you here. Thanks for popping by! ^_^
