Newton’s Nook – Oh, Happy Day!

Hello there! I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog today with this really simple but pretty card featuring some new goodies from the May release.

To create this card, I inked up a panel with distress oxide – tumbled glass, salty ocean and blueprint sketch. Then I heat embossed the floral roundabout and a sentiment on the panel. After that cooled I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 and set it aside.

I knew I wanted to use this image from Newton’s Flower Garden so I inked it up and colored it with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. Moving on to assembly I quickly decided that I didn’t like the boring white frame from the cardbase to the inked panel so I added another layer of yellow cardstock in between. This panel is cut down to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

For assembly, I added foam tape to the yellow and inked panels and adhered them to a white card base. Then Newton is popped up with foam squares in the center of the embossed image and I moved on to finishing touches.

For those I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in the flower centers and open dots in the floral roundabout design. Then I used clear Nuvo Crystal Drops on the colored image for that usual glossy sheen I like.

I think Newton looks so content laying in the flowers. So peaceful and happy. I love it! I hope you enjoyed today’s card.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
