An art lover’s card for a friend or relative, to let them know how special they are to you. The card is made up of a suitcase full of artist tools, a partial stamped/partial die cut greeting and panel of abstract colored paper.
For the Inspiration Challenge (IC951) we are visiting Bas Bleu & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS image for my inspiration. The fun artist pouch reminded me of these artist tools dies so it brought them out and die cut all the tools & letter of COLOR out of heavy white card stock. I tend to do this so I don’t have to cut multiple times with multiple colors. I had the panel of paper left & it was just big enough to cut w/ one of the mini slimline dies. Then I colored all the tools to go w/ the paper.
The suitcase I die cut out of 2 shades of grey w/ black accents & I added 3 layers of card board behind the bottom section to give it the impression of being open & full of the art supplies. I like to mix up greetings, especially if I don’t have what I want already there, so I stamped & die cut the YOU, colored the white letters for COLOR & stamped the last line.
You can see the dimension from this angle.
Here are the Copics I used to color in the die cuts:
