Hello everyone! I have been enjoying playing with the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris dies. They are so fun to create with. It seems like each time I create a card with them it spurs another idea I’m excited to try out.
Here’s a look at today’s card in all the stages from closed to open.
To create this card I started by inking up 3 panels with distress oxide inks in mermaid lagoon, peacock feathers and salty ocean. I spritzed them all with water and started die cutting the pieces to my magic iris, including the magic iris add-on.
Next I stamped, colored and die cut my images from Avery Elle’s Sea-prise. Then I took the cover to my magic iris and stamped the solid fish image from the stamp set randomly on it along with the sentiment.
I moved on to assembly by following the Lawn Fawn Intro to Magic Iris video on YouTube. Once that was complete, I die cut a large stitched rectangle from Really Rainbow Scallops paper in yellow and adhered it to a cardbase. Then I used my magic iris for placement and glued the inside pieces in place, including my fish and his party blower.
Next, I die cut waves from one of the panels I inked earlier and adhered them with my shark to the front of the card. For finishing touches I just added a few white gel pen accents to the images and stamped the second sentiment from the stamp set on the inside.
This was a birthday card for my sister-in-law and I’m so excited that I finally got to give it to her the other day and that now I can share it with all of you. I hope you enjoyed it!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
