Okay, winter has barely begun, but already I'm thinking spring! I can't help it, with this sweet little Pure Innocence: Because You're Special I was dying to use my pinks.
I've been having fun combining my Copics and my Pencils for a little something different lately. On this card, I've done all my base with Copics, and then added some details with pencils. Remember that if you're going to combine, you've got to do all your Copic work first, then add pencils. Don't color over the pencil with your Copics, or you'll ruin the marker tip!
After my Valentine with the Girls Paperie paper the other day, I was itchy to use it again. So I kept on going. I've only got a *little* bit of this left - such a shame it is a beautiful collection.
I've added a Small Scalloped Border Die-namic with the ledger paper, and a light pink gingham bow on the side. To round my card out into a little gift set, I was anxious to play with my Cricut and the Sweet Surprise Gift Box. This is one of the amazing templates available at MFT, this one was designed by my friend Jen! Note: If you don't happen to have a digital cutter, there are also print and cut files available to do it by hand.
I added the new Layered Label Die to create an accent for the front, I love that it works as a vertical accent piece too - cute right? Finished off with a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments (...clearly a MUST have stamp set....)
But of course, you've got to see how cute this box is on the inside. Today I've used the optional gift card insert... but I'm working on another one of these that you'll see on in the next few days that has a *sweet treat* inside too!
Thanks so much for visiting with me tonight, I can't WAIT to see what you all pick up at the MFT Store tonight, I think it is a truly AWESOME release!
Your next stop on tonight's hop is the sweet, and talented, Julie Dinn! I just know she'll have something amazing for you, I'll meet you over there to check it out!
