Todays card features these fun lemon stamps form the Main Squeeze set. Seeing this, I feel like I don't use yellow enough on my cards. It's such a bright and "good-mood" color.
I colored the lemons and leaves using the no-line coloring technique. I stamped everything in light gray ink and colored it with alcohol markers. I recommend using a light dye ink for this technique like MFTs Gout Gray. The dots on the lemons helped me to find the shadow areas. You don't have to give them attention but I found it helpful.
After coloring everything, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies. Next, I played around with my images until I found a layout I liked. To make sure the lemons stay in place, I used a low-tack painters tape to tape them together. This will come in handy later.
I set the lemons aside and die cut a fun window with the Blueprints 33 die-namics to my blue card base. I also die cut a white piece of cardstock with the same die. I glued the white piece to the inside of my card, aligning it to the front piece. Long story short, there's a window in this card and if you open it, you see the white die cut shape and the sentiment on the inside.
And now, for the lemons. They were still attached to the tape, so I turned them around and added foam tape to all of them. I removed all of the release paper at once and added all the lemons at once to my open (!) card. I had to be careful not to stick them to my work mat. I die cut all the lemons and leaves from white card stock and added them to the back of the colored lemons. This way, when you open the card, you will not see the back of my colored pieces but have a clean white inside.
I added a few sequins and drew some stitched lines with a white gel pen to finish up my card. I hope you got inspired. You can find another super fun way to make a window card on MFTs YouTube channel. Stephanies cupcake cards are absolutely wonderful.
