Hello my sweet friends, Ilda here!
Today I am sharing a couple of colorful Summer inspired Citrus Cards. I had recently colored the images during Kathy Raccosin’s Daily Coloring Challenge and thought they would make some fun Friendship cards.
Like I said I had previously colored the CITRUS TRIMMINGS images in, but before I colored them with ARTEZA BRUSH PENS, I stamped them out onto Bristol paper and heat embossed the lines using gold embossing powder. Once the images were colored and dry, I fussy cut the Citrus images out.
Next, I created the backgrounds. On this first card, I chose 4 different color cardstock that matched the colors of the oranges I had colored. I then stacked, rotated, and flipped a few of the layers to end up with this colorful lattice-like background. I then glued them all together and attached it to the front of the card base.
I then popped up the Orange Citrus trimmings in the center of the card using FOAM and then stamped out the sentiment onto a tag I die cut from the PEONY TRIMMINGS Die set. I then finished off this card using BUBBLEGUM and RIPE PERSIMMON PEARLS.
For the Lemon/Lime version of the Citrus Card, the process was pretty much the same with a few exceptions.
This time I only used two colors of cardstock to create the background, and I glued the Citrus Trimmings along the bottom of the card without using foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment on to a banner from the DOTTED PATTERNS SET 4 and adhered it in the center of the card using foam tape. Finally, to finish this one off, I added GOLD FOIL PEARLS. I also added some glossy accents to the center sections of the fruit, but I didn’t like how it lost the detail of the watercolor painting I had done, so I did not add accents to the previous card. If you look closely you will see the difference.
Hopefully, you were inspired by this bright and colorful Citrus Trimmings Friendship Cards. I had so much fun designing these.
Thank you for stopping by and until next time… Happy Crafting my friends!
