September Guest Contributor : Farhana - Interactive Cards

Hello crafty friends! It's Farhana again! If you missed my first post with Doodlebugs, you can find it here. Today I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone by coloring these little girl images from the MFT STAMPS: Sweet Besties. Luckily not much blending was needed as the images are small, making them perfect to practice on. All the copic marker combinations used will be listed at the end of the post.

Since the images were simple and perfect for little girls, I thought it would be fun to create some interactive cards. I started with stamping, coloring and fussy cutting the images. Then the fun part of assembling the cards!

For the first card, I created a gatefold card. I started with a 5.5 by 8.5 inch piece of card stock, then scored it 2.125 inch (2 1/8 inch). I cut two strips of paper (2 1/8 by 5 1/2 inches) from the MFT STAMPS: Watercolor Wash Paper Pad, and adhered them to the front of the card base. Using a punch, I made two small holes and threaded some ribbon through and tied a bow to hold the card together. I adhered two of the stamped images to each side of the card, and stamped some flowers to the background with a purple ink. The sentiment is stamped with the same ink on the inside of the card.

The second card is a shaker, my favorite type of card to make! For this one I tried to make it look like the shaker is the flowers the little girl is throwing. I started cutting down to a A2 from the MFT STAMPS: Watercolor Wash Paper Pad, and  die cut a circle, added some acetate, layered with foam tape, and filled it with some flower sequins I had in my stash. Then, I adhered the card front to an A2 top folding card base. I adhered the image next to the shaker and added a sentiment to finish off the card.

For the last card, I made a window card, very similar to the shaker, but instead of sequins, I stamped multiples of the floral images that you can see though the window. I started with a A2 top folding card base, adhered a 4.5 x 5.5 piece of pattern paper from the MFT STAMPS: Watercolor Wash Paper Pad on the inside of the card and die cut the circle window on the top flap. I adhered one little girl image on the outside and another on the inside, and stamped two sentiments and flowers in a pink ink to complete the card.

Lastly, the copic combos that I used are : R20-22, V15-17, Y11-13, E11-31-33-37-55-57
