OHC 07 - Yellow

Here is another card for my OHC challenge (read about it here). This time, I am working with theme #7 - Yellow. The first thing that pops into my mind when thinking of yellow is baby cards, so I decided to make a simple cheerful baby card.

I started by grabbing a Sunflower Notecard from Lawn Fawn. This little notecard is a 4-bar size, which makes it smaller and more adorable -- and isn't everything about babies supposed to be teeny tiny?

I then grabbed a journaling card to use as my pattern base. I chose a card that had the same yellow as the notecard, and stripes. I love combining straps and polkadots, and I think they create a very interesting visual. This journaling card also happened to have a banner shape that was perfect for my sentiment. So, I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby set in brown ink. I adhered this panel straight onto the card base.

I grabbed a piece of white cardstock and stamped the adorable floating bunny on it in brown ink. This bunny comes from a photo-polymer set called Lucky Bunnies by The Greeting Farm. It's a set that's a couple of years old, so I was not able to find a direct link to it. But here is the image of the set:

I colored the bunny in with my Prismacolor pencils. I chose a combination of yellow and orange for the bunny and a punch of bright blue for the balloon. Once it was completely colored, I carefully cut around it, leaving a small white border. I added it to the card with foam squares.

As a last touch, I added 3 yellow and orange enamel dots.

  1. Wow again & love all the new posts on the blog!! Wish I could create, but my exams don't let me :( *sni snif. Anyway, love all your new cards, you definitaly got the swing back!!
    & I think your 100 card-challenges is a super cool idea (previous blog post). I need to make something like that :D

    1. Maybe once the exams are done, you'll get a big chance to create, too! The OHC is so great. I'm wishing I'd thought of it sooner. I'm enjoying it very much, and I'd love to see what kind of thing others would do with that idea. :)

  2. Super cute card! I love how you've combined the stripes and polka dots. The little bunny is beyond adorable and, as always, coloured to perfection. You're knocking your challenge out of the park!

    1. Aww, thanks so much, Kylie! I love that whole stamp set. I've been hesitant to use it since it's retired, but I'm trying very hard not to let that stop me anymore. Using up supplies is good. :)
