I made this card for the Just Magnolia challenge this week! The challenge is to make a card with a Summer theme! I have been thinking about this fun card idea for a while now, mulling it over in my head! Finally, I had a chance to put it all together! So, I made a 6x6 card base from red Bazzill Basics cardstock. I wanted the focal of this card to be the circle with these fun words on it...just what everyone wants to do in the summer....run, jump, skip, play! This is a QK Digital download image and I cut it out my QuicKutz Silhouette and inked it and all the pp with Faded Jeans Distress inks. I used BasicGrey Lime Ricky for the pp and cut the solid blue pp with my Fiskars circle cutter to mat the die cut.
I stamped Edwin and the butterflies, from the Magnolia Chasing Butterflies collection, on Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock and coloured them in with my Copics, cut them out and pop-dotted them on the circle. I used the colours from this week's Copic Colour Challenge...Rose Red R 85, Holiday Blue BG05, Cadmium Yellow Y15.
Again, I embossed this fun C.C. Designs sentiment with American Crafts Zing white embossing powder. I just love having a white sentiment and it is so hard to get a good crisp impression with white ink, so I am just thrilled with the Zing embossing powder! I finished the card off with some American Crafts ribbon...my fave, smile! Got Flowers? Primas (that I got at Micheals for $2.99...whata steal) and MM brads!
The inside is very simple and just left it as a note card!
Thanks for stopping by this morning to have a wee peek! I am going to have a blog hop now and catch up on my commenting. Sorry I haven't been around to comment much lately. I am having a crazy busy month I will be going on holidays in a few weeks...I am very much looking forward to that break!
