OHC 11 - Pink (with Lawn Fawn)

It's time for another card for my One Hundred Cards challenge (read about the challenge here)! This round, I pulled out theme #11 - pink. When I think of pink, soft and sweet comes to mind, so I decided to use a few Lawn Fawn products.

I started by grabbing a piece of white cardstock and a piece of Let's Polka 12x12 pink striped paper and cut them out with a stitched rectangle die. I then used the largest scallop from Stitched Scalloped Borders die on the bottom of the cardstock panel. This cut out a cute scallop shape. Lastly, I ran the white panel through the Bigshot one more time and cut out two little hearts.

I stamped the adorable cup from Love You a Latte set just under the hearts. I quickly colored it in with Copics. The panel looked a bit bare, so I decided to make a quick colored background for it. I was very much inspired by Sandy Allnock, who is incredibly talented and skilled at coloring. She recently posted a video about achieving a watercolor look with Copics, and I wanted to do something similar. So, I went for a simple multi-color background with a bit of dotty texture. I didn't do enough blending to make it look like watercolor, really, but I enjoyed just playing around with color.

After the coloring was done, I created a card base out of Cashmere cardstock - a top-folding A2 base (4¼ by 5½"). I adhered the striped rectangle straight to the card. Then I added the cup panel with foam tape.

I had a piece of white cardstock left over, so I decided to make a sentiment panel with it. I simply lined up the stitched rectangle die and ran it through my Bigshot again. This gave me a tiny stitched rectangle, which was perfect for my sentiment. I stamped "i love you" from Love You Smore set in brown ink. I added the sentiment to the card with foam tape.

I wanted to add a very few small decorative touches. So, I took the small heart I'd cut out of the white panel and colored it in with a Copic marker. I adhered it next to the sentiment. I also grabbed three sequins from Avery Elle's Sugar blend and adhered them near the cup.

  1. Very pretty, love your dotted background!

    1. Thank you so much, Petti! I love the background, too. I'm definitely going to play around with it again sometime. :)

  2. Totally cute! Love the background, the stitched scalloped border and the negative die-cut hearts.

    1. Thank you, Anya! It was one of those cards that just fell together beautifully. It sure makes up for all the times when I sit down to make a card and just don't know what to do...

  3. Super cute card, Elle! Totally loving the copic background and the hearts too! Love it!

    1. Thanks so much, Kylie! That Copic background is awesome, and surprisingly easy to do. Just a light scribble here and there, and it all comes together. I hope you'll get a chance to try it out sometime, too. I think you'd really enjoy it. :)
