Thinking of You card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer's Tip: When working with the Spectrum Noir Pens work with the darkest colors on the outside edge and light colors on the inside. Use the medium colored pen as a bridge to blend the first 2 colors. Also do the inside of the card first so that the ink that bleeds through to the card front can be covered with paper.
- Place the card fold on the left. Open the card and stamp the branch corner images at the top corners. Stamp the greeting on the left side. Stamp the peach half on the left side of the fold, 3" from the top. Stamp the Honeypop pattern on the Apricot Honeycomb paper, following the directional arrow, and cut out. Stamp the stem and leaves on the left side of the fold just above where the Honeypop peach will be glued.
- Color in the peach pit using the gold GB6 pen. Color the outside using the CR7 pen and the inside using FL2 orange. Color the stem using the gold pen and the leaves using the darker green JG1 and light green GT2. Clor the corner branch leaves using GB6 green. Glue the Honeypop peach to both sides of the fold. Glue a 9 1/2" x 11/4" strip of red check paper to the bottom of the card. Embellish corners with rhinestones.
- Cover the card front with yellow daisy paper. Cut a 5" wide portion of the doily and glue near the card bottom. Stamp 4 whole peach and 2 sets of leaves on white cardstock. Color the leaves as before. Color the peach stems gold GB6 and the outside of each peach pink/orange CR7. Color the peach centers orange OR2. Cut out the peaches and leaves. Glue 3 peaches across the top of the doily and foam tape the 4th peach overlapping the first 3. Glue the leaves to extend from behind the peaches. Embellish peaches with orange rhinestones.
- Cut a 2 5/8" x 2 1/4" rectangle of white cardstock and stamp the corners with branches and the greeting at the center. Color leaves green. Place tiny rhinestones at the corners. Foam tape over a 3"x 2 3/4" red check rectangle matted with brown cardstock with a 1/16" border. Glue at an angle above the peaches with a brown gingham bow at the left side.
