Hello again! The week is just flying by! I’m back today with another installment of happy, bright fun from my recent haul of the Avery Elle summer release. Today I’m playing with the mini set with that cute bunny laying on the unicorn floaty. This is so me in the pool. Just laying about, soaking up the sun. Sounds fabulous!
To create this card, I started by die cutting a panel with the Avery Elle Ray die. I used distress oxides in squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin and abandoned coral on the panel. Then on the white card base I added some wild honey behind where the hole would be. It gave a little contrast for my sunshine. Then I took a panel and inked it up with salty ocean and mermaid lagoon. I cut that panel with the Lawn Fawn ocean wave borders die to give me 2 waves for my scene.
I stamped my image from Suns Out and colored it with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out as well. Instead of stamping the sentiment on a banner or directly on the panel I thought it would be fun to put it in a speech bubble. For this I used the Avery Elle speech bubbles set but the sentiment from Suns Out. Now we moved on to assembly.
The sunny panel is popped up with foam tape and the first wave border is adhered to that with liquid glue. The second wave was added with foam tape and then the bunny was tucked under it with foam squares behind it. The speech bubble was added with foam squares as well.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the bunny’s glasses and nose, unicorn Stickles to the unicorn horn and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the “hair” of the unicorn. Last, I thought it would round the design out to add some Lemon Drop Dream Jelly Drop Hearts from Trinity Stamps around the sun.
Such a silly card, but I really love how it all came together. I’ve been inspired by Jenn Bena to try and create a set of different cards with the smaller mini sets and this one might be fun to start with. I’ll be sure to share when I get brave enough to try it out.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
