Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I’m taking another short break from autumn and Christmas cards today (don’t worry I’ll be back at it tomorrow 🙂
I’m always in need of birthday cards and I find during this season I’m always short because I’m not making them as often.
My card today starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I love this color paired with the Daffodil Delight – so bright and yummy! I then stamped the lemon image from the Lemon Zest stamp set over the card front in Soft Sky ink.
Next I took a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder. I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front. I took a panel of Tempting Turquoise cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it. I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
Next I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating punch to create my lemons. Ironically enough, my Daffodil Delight ink pad is in need of re-inking so it actually gave this nice gradient look to the stamped image which I really liked.
