My Thanks...

Welcome everyone.. today is the last day of July. I hope you all had an awesome month. It has been full of fireworks, celebration and heat. Let's just say we have been spending plenty of time at the pools. But we are headed into August and I believe that the heat gets worse in August and I would like to say that we are prepared. But enough of all that, let's get to today's card. 

Today's card is a little different as you can see. SO I recently had to refill my comic markers and well you have to test them to see what colors need more ink. I kind of liked all the ink on the cardstock so I decided to use it as a background, so that is what you see here today.

Card designed using Avery Elle:
  • Toucan Party stamp set
  • Postage Stamp dies
  • Quilted Frame dies

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

I die cut my Copic testing page using the Quilted Frame die.

Cut a piece of red cardstock the same size as your card base. Lay the quilted die on the red piece and make an X and then cut out that area of red so when you adhere the quilted layer you will see white instead of red. When cutting out the red, don't worry about being neat because no one will see it.

Adhere the red cardstock and the quilted background to each other. 

Die cut the Postage Stamp die out on white cardstock and adhere to the top of your quilted background.

Stamp out these lovely images and color using your favorite medium. I colored mine using Copic sketch markers. You can die cut them with the coordinating dies or fussy cut. I had to fussy cut. 

Now time to create your scene. Make sure to leave enough space for your sentiment.

Stamp the sentiment directly onto the card in the white space. 

Finishing with a few of those fun glittered enamel drops. 

I thought I was done but I then added some white gel pen here and there to highlight some of the areas of the images. 

That is all for now. I know you're thinking what an interesting background. YES, it might not be for everyone BUT I kind of like it. Different is good!!!!

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
