Colour Me #68 – Thank You Card using Lawn Fawn

Cards, Thank You Cards

Welcome! It’s Wednesday already, so that means another new Colour Me challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using navy, teal, pink, and yellow.

I’ve been reaching for my Critters in the Jungle set quite a bit recently, so that’s where I started for inspiration for my card. Make sure to watch the YouTube video to see how I made it–

I started at my computer in Silhouette Studio to cut the stitched window on my cardbase. Next, I masked off the area on the inside of the card that would show through the window. I used a navy and teal ink to blend on the background. While I let the background dry, I stamped, coloured, and die cut the birds.

After the background was dry and smooth, I stamped the thank you greeting and smooshed Versamark ink over the area before heat embossing with clear. In real life, the clear embossing powder gives a really shiny texture to the card so it finishes it off nicely.

Finally, I adhered down the birds and called it a day.

Thanks so much for dropping by! Make sure to visit the other design team members for tons more inspiration–

  1. You always amaze me with your attention to detail! I LOVE the “spots” you added to the parrots by using your blender marker. Also, the embossed background is awesome! I so enjoy your videos too!
