You never know what it really is that makes one die your favorite die, don't you! For me at the moment I can't stay away from Lawn Fawn's Scripty Happy die.
So I decided to make it the star of my card.
I started by die cutting the word a few times from watercolour cardstock. Then I adhered the die cuts in diagonal lines to a piece of the same watercolor cardstock. When the glue was dry I added some of my new inks to the paper. I chose violet, turquoise and blue. At first I thought I made this card for my nephew who's turning twenty in a few weeks but I think the violet is not the right color for a young man.
I spritzed a little bit of water onto the panel to achieve these bleached spots. I also added some splashes of white ink and some shimmer spray.
For the focal point I decided to go with the happy die again. I die cut it again a few times from black cardstock and stacked it up for a little bit of dimension. To make it stand out a little bit more I set it on a vellum heart (I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Heart Stackables). I stamped Birthday on a piece of cardstock, embossed it in white, added the same violet ink I used for the background and cut it into a banner!
To finish up the card I added some star sequins.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!
