I did a double-take this morning when I realized we were already into the month of June. It took me a few days to notice....
The good news? It's time for another lawnscaping challenge:
This one is for all the wannabe copic colorers out there, the ones who own copics but don't really know what to do with them. Solidarity, my friends.
I was recently asked to make a set of woodsy invitations, oh and by the way, the birthday girl loves gnomes. My kind of girl.
I started out by coloring all of my gnomes and die-cutting them. For a little something extra, I added glossy accents to his tall gnome hat.
The circle stackable dies made it easy to create my focal point. I stamped the fox, mushrooms, and gnome onto a white circle and colored them all in. Even the gnome. I like that when you look sideways, you can see a fully colored gnome underneath the pop-up.
The "you're invited" banner at the bottom of the circle hides a folded, flat edge. All of the party information can be accessed by untying the twine at the top and opening the folded circle.
I popped the entire circle onto foam squares, so that it would be able to open and close with ease...
Here's a quick visual on how I created the folded circle card. Fold a piece of red cardstock, and lay the circle so that the die overhangs the folded edge at the top. Secure with washi tape (or post-it notes) and run through the machine.
I hope you like them, and I really hope you decide to play along with our coloring challenge! Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp:
