Hello Crafty Friends and Welcome! Today's card was created for Craft Roulette Episode #188. The parameters for this card were:
1. Project: Gift Card
2. Colors: Coffee Shop
3. Element: Go Wild
4: Random: Add a Number(s)
I had all kinds of ideas for this card, including making a coffee shop that has gone wild with plants, but I decided to go for a kids card (which are always handy to have in stock). For this card, I used MFT - Picture Perfect Party Animals and Lawn Fawn's Flippy Flappy die set to create this gift card pop-up card.
For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base using Neenah Classic Crest heavy weight (110lb) smooth white cardstock. I then die cut a rectangle from green leaf patterned paper and my largest MFT - A2 Stitched Stax rectangle dies.
I then die cut all the pieces I needed from Lawn Fawn's Flippy Flappy die set to create the pop out mechanism. They have a couple of great YouTube tutorials on how to use this die set.
I added the brown polka dot patterned paper on top, then started on my stamped images. I stamped the MFT - Picture Perfect Party Animals on the same heavy weight cardstock as my card base. Then I colored the images in with Copic markers. I tried to keep with the Coffee shop colors. I live in Canada so Tim Hortons is very popular here and their colors are red, white and brown.Once I had all my images colored, I added some Glitter Gel and Glossy Accents to the images and set them aside to dry.
