Hi friends, for today`s project I used the amazing Digi image  “One in a melon”  and also the coordinating sentiment from Heartcraft Paper Shop.

 

I started by printing out my Digi image and the sentiment on Neenah Solar White 80 lb paper with a toner printer because I knew I want to color my images with Copic Markers and toner printer is safe for those markers.

Then I started to color my image and the sentiment with different Copic Markers: for the melon I used R 17, R 32,G 07, G 46, E 13, E 17, and for some details I used Polycromos NR. 177. After that I used some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer for some sparkle and some Glossy Accents for shine and leave them to dry.

Then I started working on my base card by die cutting a card base out of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. paper and make a side folding card that measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch and I also die cut a panel out of pattern paper from Spring collection from Lawn Fawn with a Mama Elephant die from the All Prittied Up set. Then I adhere this panel to my front base card.

Then I took the Flop Card Heart die set from My Favorite Things and used that heart to die cut a heart in the front of my card to create a heart window.

After I die cut 2 card strips that measure: 1/2 in by 4 1/4 inch, then  I scored them at 3/4 , 2 3/4 and at 3 1/2 inch and reinforce those with a bone folder. Then I used Scoring Tape on both end flaps of those strips and adhere one end of the flaps right against of the left side of my interior card.

Then I adhere the second end of that strip on the right side of my card. Then I added more tape on the center part of that strip and adhere my Digi image.

I will link to a video from Jennifer McGuire where she shows in more detail this method.And I did the same for the other strip and adhere my sentiment afterwards. And that completes my card for today. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great week!
