Blue China card


Boy, it's a SCORCHER out there today.  Yikes......  We were getting spoiled with the almost bearable temperatures this summer, and we are not ready for these numbers this week: 102 today, 104 tomorrow, 102, 101, 100.....  That doesn't even count the heat index.  It's time for a sweet card to cool us off!  :-)

Isn't that CUTE????  Those mice are so adorable!  I stamped the Cupboard image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored the image with Copic markers.  I cut some white cardstock slightly larger than the image and sponged blue ink around the edges.  The Cupboard image was adhered to the blue-sponged cardstock.  I stamped the tiny flower image from the Happy Birthday set with yellow ink onto the yellow card base (5.5" x 4.25").  The Cupboard image was adhered to the yellow card base.

I die cut some Olive Branches and glued those down on opposing corners.  I cut some flowers from blue cardstock.  Each flower has four layers of petals glued together.  I used the Distressed Fuzz technique from Technique Junkies to add some white fuzz to the centers and then I fluffed up the petals with my fingers.

The products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I used today are:

Happy Birthday (Stampavie) - the little flower stamped in the background (yellow card base)
Olive Branches die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Miniature Rose die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Medium Rose die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
