Welcome back Crafty Friends! This is our first blog post of 2023 and we wish you a healthy and prosperous year ahead!
Today Mimi is back to share with us a super cute classroom setting Thank You card!
I’m loving all the bright and vibrant colors! To set the scene, she used the Classroom Scene Builder die set. She ink blended the back wall with Distress Oxide Broken China and the wood floor with Gathered Twigs.
This Classroom Scene Builder die set has all the elements you need to create a detailed and adorable classroom setting! I love the Copic coloring she did on the die-cut pieces.
I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!
I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!
All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.
Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!
The final design is achieved in 3 rounds of inking (by rotating the stencil to every 4th circle on the scale, twice). This large canvas allows her to easily create two cards, an A2 size and a 5×5 square card, just by slicing it down near the middle!
This one below is the A2 size card. I just love the rainbow hue that she blended.
Below is the 5×5” square card. I love how the beautiful colors contrasting against the crisp black trims and sentiments!
