One of the highlights of my week was getting the new WOJ Blooming Spring stamp kit. This kit is available at stores only and I was able to get mine from Stamp and Create. Talk about getting in the mood for spring! I also incorporated the WOJ Tutorial for making a 3D aperture easel card. This is such a sensational card and really quite easy to make. Oh, but that's not all! The fabulously talented Heather at Rica's Haven generously shared her tutorial for making an "envelop/box" for these especially thick cards. Without further ado, here is the whole project:
This gorgeous is the new Penny Lane collection from My Mind's Eye. All the die cuts and the aperture are cut with Nestibilities. The images are colored with Copics: Hair: E41, E35, E31; Skin: E00, E000; Dress: R22, R27, R29; Apron E41. Bouquet and tulips BV11, BV13, BV04 for flowers and YG23, YG25, YG00 for the leaves. The sentiment is part of the WOJ stamp kit and I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black on PaperTrey white cardstock, which is the combination I use for all of my stamping. It works great with the Copics! The red gingham ribbon just seemed perfect as a finishing touch.
