Thank you for joining me on my very first blog post for Crafts by The Letter Lingo.
Today I’m sharing a masculine card for either a birthday or even early Father’s Day card. I used an adorable set called Citrus Crush, that is available now in their first product release. The image sizes are great and make coloring a breeze, and there are so many little cute and punny sentiments that accompany them.
I made a tall slimline card that is sized at 8.5 x 3.25 and has quickly become one of my favorite sized cards to make. I started by cutting and inking my panels. I knew I wanted to cut some letter alphabet dies at the bottom so I colored the area at the bottom as well on my water panel. Then I flicked some clean water, which I blotted up with a tissue. Followed by some opaque white ink and put aside to dry.
I stamped then colored my images using black momento ink and Copic markers. Then added a few white highlights with a gel pen. Then I ran the images through my scan n cut.
I attached my images using a combination of glues and foam tape then finished off with a sprinkling of sequins. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this card.
