Hello and happy Wednesday! This is Crystal Komara here with you today sharing this sweet and summery card filled with fresh fruit from the Life is Sweet stamp set. Last week I admitted that I haven’t been good recently at timing the theme of my cards around the holidays, so I think this fruity card is one that’s perfect for any occasion this summer since we still have the month of August before us.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Altenew Watercolor Stripes Cover Die, I die cut the frame also from white cardstock. I stamped multiple images from the Joy Clair Designs Life is Sweet stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers (mostly using reds, greens and yellows) and then used a Brother Scan and 2 e-cutting machine to cut the images out, in lieu of fussy cutting. I adhered the images down the left side of the card in a pattern I found pleasing to my eye. I stamped the sentiment “life is sweet” in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardsotck and die cut it using a 2″ circle die. I adhered the sentiment to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s fruit filled card! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day! For more inspiration, you can follow me on my website, Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel.
