For my card today I had to use the brand new Friends Forever Stamp Set and matching dies! This stamp set has the cutest little boys and girls and a beautiful heart balloon. I used loads of PPP dies too, and a color palette for Spring of aqua and yellow. Whenever Spring hits, I am all about yellow! It's such a happy color. I used my Copic Markers to color everything and then used some new PPP Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix sequins to finish off my card.
I started with a crisp white A2 card base made from Neenah cardstock. Then I layered pretty aqua on top of the white. I cut out my white layer and the scallop frame in white also. I backed the frame with yellow gingham paper from my stash. Next I stamped, die cut and colored my two girlfriends and the balloon in shades to match the papers. Before I color with my Copics I like to choose my papers first so everything will match. It's much easier to match the paper than to try to find paper to match a colored image later!
The girls are attached to the card using foam tape for dimension, to make them pop right off the page! They are so cute in their matching outfits!! The bow is from the Twine and Bows Die Set and it's just a little something for there at the bottom of my card!
Here are some of my Copic choices. A full list is at the bottom of my post - exactly which colors I used. These new sequins are cool - see? No holes in the middle!
