It's been a long time since I've posted something that's not been for an assignment. I've been very focused on my Altenew Certified Educator Programme (AECP), and so all of my cards have been in the style of floral or geometrics.
Today, I have a cutesy card to share. There was a time when all of my cards were cute, but more recently, I've been much more into elegant cards; I don't know why.
Anyways, I made this card for my daughter as we just found out she's graduated with a Master's in Science. Wow! She definitely didn't get that intelligence from me, haha.
For this card, I wanted to create a bit of science madness. It's a bit OTT, but I'm still pleased with how it turned out! I forgot to take photos of the card when the wheel was turned! The messages in the little window are 'fabulous', 'amazing', 'terrific' and 'awesome.
I haven't made a Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel card for a very long time, so I couldn't remember how to put it together. Chari Moss came to the rescue with this video.
Here's how the card came together:
1. Create the reveal wheel panel as per Chari's video. I cut a rectangle using Heffy
Doodle's Metric Stitched Rectangle Dies and Concord & 9th Fig cardstock. (I LOVE
their cardstock, the colours are gorgeous!)
2. I cut one panel in raspberry cardstock to nestle behind the reveal wheel and the
front panel in marbled paper.
3. I stamped the sentiments from Lawn Fawn's Reveal Wheel Sentiments
4. I stamped, coloured and die Lawn Fawn images from the following sets using my
Altenew Artist Marker pens:
Books and mug (with steam) from Den Sweet Den
Bird, bottles, hearts and specimen tubes from Science of Love
Graduation cap and scroll from Smart Cookie
I used the following markers:
Buttercream and Mango Smoothie
Deep Iris and Midnight Violet
Pure Graphite and Industrial Diamond
Purple Wine and Puffy Heart
Rubellite and Pinkalicious
Dew Drops and Mountain Mist
Dark Chocolate (the coffee in the mug)
5. I then added the coloured images to the front of the card, some bubble gems
from Little Things from Lucy's Cards, and some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen
and that was the card complete. I thought the bubbles looked like something was
being cooked up :D
I made that sound like it came together in a few minutes. It did take time, but I was pottering around in between. I had a lovely time making it. I sat in the garden listening to the birds singing while the sun was shining until it didn't, and I had to run in from the rain, lol. That's Scottish weather for you!
I hope you've enjoyed seeing something a bit different from me. I still have to pass Level 2 and then do all of my classes from Level 3, so there will still be a lot of florals, but I'll mix in some cute/interactive cards from time to time when I can.
Let me know what you think of this card in the comments below.
Have a great week ahead!
