Hi again! Today is day 2 of my Paper Smooches fun! Let’s shake things up a bit – Spanish-style! 😉 I love avocados and my husband hates them. This leaves so many opportunities for teasing both ways. It’s great fun and our daughter loves to instigate it.
As you can guess, I was super excited to use this fun stamp from the Happy Hellos set to show my love for what my husband calls – dirt fruit.
For this card, I stamped my image on Bristol Smooth Cardstock and pulled out my Zigs again. Then I cut out the two parts that I colored and set them aside.
I grabbed my Trinity Stamps Catching Some Rays stencil and did a two-tone with it. The skinnier stripes are mustard seed to squeezed lemonade distress oxides while the thicker stripes are twisted citron. I just faded the ink the farther our I got from the center. Then I heat embossed the image near the center area and popped the colored images on top of that with foam squares.
I took my panel and popped it up with foam tape on a lime green card base that played off the colors on the avocado well and moved on to finishing touches. I scattered Nuvo Crystal Drops in ripened pumpkin, dandelion yellow and apple green across the design.
This is such a spicy, fun card! I love how it turned out! It’s fun and also easy enough to mass produce if you wanted to send a bunch of happy mail out!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
