Hi everyone, thank you for joining me today for my inspirational post. I was feeling the need to create with some bright fun colors, so I hope you enjoy this fruitastic card!! so lets get started!
Step 1: Start with a 4×4 square piece of cardstock, next I took my Make your Mark Stencil and applied yellow ink directly to the back of the stencil I choose the honey come side, next, I lightly spritzed it with some water and pressed onto the cardstock.
Step 2: I took some of the Reminiscence washi tape #1 and ripped up a few pieces and added them to the card, as per picture above and set card panel aside.
Step 3: Cut and ink your squirrel, instead of the nut being brown I used red cardstock to make it into a strawberry (a great idea from another ECD Ambassador) I added pink to his cheeks and two white dots from a gel pen.
Step 4: Cut your strawberries from red card stock and the leaves from green cardstock and ink the edges. I used my paper shaping kit to add a little dimension to my strawberries and leaves.
Step 5: Next I assembled my Squirrel, Strawberries and leaves to my card panel as per picture above.
Step 6: I took some white acrylic paint and speckled the front of my card, set aside and let dry.
Step 7: I took a piece of card stock 5 x 10 and score @ 5″ to make my card front.
Step 8: I repeated the same process as the front of the card to the inside, by adding some yellow ink to the back of the stencil spritzing it and laying it down onto the cardstock.
Step 9: I added a stamp sentiment and layered it onto the black cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card. Last I added a strawberry, vine and flower.
Step 10: I cut a piece of black card stock 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and matted my front panel to it, then I added it to my card base.
I hope you enjoyed todays post. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.
