Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am on the Joy Clair Designs blog 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 another one that's perfect for 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.
Did you know that Joy Clair Designs is another woman-owned small business? There are so many small, but fabulous companies being run by boss women, such as Martha (Joy Clair's owner and beautiful designer). Martha also works full-time outside of this business and that is a strong testament to her commitment, hard work and dedication. I'm happy and honored to represent and design for companies like Joy Clair Designs.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
