Card Recipe:

1. Take a slimline die cut panel, I'm using this postage stamp style edged die from the Slimline mini mail dies set and die cut from your favourite ink blending card stock, I'm using Bright White card stock today.

2. Take some green inks, I'm also using my Catherine Pooler inks today. These inks are quite juicy and make it easier for me to cover the card panel a little more quickly on this slimline design today. I start with the lightest green Garden Party, then from the edge inwards use a slightly darker ink Grass Skirt and leave your central highlight of the lighter ink. Take a darker ink lastly Eucalyptus and darken round the edges. Spritz a little water to react the ink to add extra texture and interest to the background.

Tip: if you need to make your blended lines comes together more take the brush of the lightest ink you used and blend them out, you can always repeat the ink layers again for extra depth and this also usually helps with the blended lines!

3. Now we're going to create some apertures on the card front using this die that will create fun lift tabs on my card. This also means I have more space for more images to hide under! I die cut this 3 times down my card.

4. Stamp your images on alcohol marker friendly card stock and colour in your favourite medium. I'm using copics

Colour Combo:

Pandas - C7, C5, C3, C1

Bamboo and Balloons - G17, G14, G12

5. Back your panel with apertures onto a green card base. Mine is cut 8.5x7, scored at 3.5

6. Use an acrylic block to stamp your sentiment under the top flap and another sentiment under the bottom one

7. Attach the rest of your images with adhesive glue, don't forget to hide one under that middle flap!

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration, don't forget to comment for your chance to win some Krafty $$ and be sure to check back tomorrow for more inspiration and fun!

Until next time, happy crafting!
