DIY Die Cut Cylinder Reindeer Gift Box

Here’s what you’ll need:

Instructions

Die Cut Reindeer Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 1

1. The two largest pieces in this box kit (and all of the kits in this collection) are the box top and the box bottom. The box top (photo: top) is slightly shorter. The tabs are on the top for the box top and on the bottom for the box bottom, with the long tabs on the left on both.

2. Turn the face piece over to the back and place vertical strips of adhesive approximately 1/2” to 3/4” wide on either end, lining them up as close to the edge as you can. Then, cover the remainder of the back, minus the ear areas (leave those uncovered), with double-sided adhesive or glue. If using liquid glue, cover all but the ear areas and 1/2” to 3/4” wide strips on either end of the piece.

3. Remove the protective paper from all of the double-sided adhesive pieces EXCEPT the vertical strips on each end (if using this type of adhesive). Line up the top left corner of the face piece with the notch where the long side tab and first top tab meet on the box top. There will be an approximately 1/2” wide strip of the face piece that will go beyond the end of the box top on the right side. This is correct, and this area will come into play later in the assembly process. Press the face piece down onto the box top to adhere.

4. Glue the eyes, nose, and mouth in place using the corresponding slits in the face piece as guides. Center the inner ear pieces against the score lines and glue in place. A sticky tool, like a Quick Stik or a Pick Me Up, isn’t necessary here but definitely comes in handy for placing smaller pieces like these.

5. Place small strips of double-sided adhesive along the left and right edges of the back of the bow collar. Leave these areas unglued if using liquid glue. Cover the rest of the back of the piece with adhesive or glue and, if using an adhesive with protective / backer paper, remove it from JUST the center area, leaving the paper on the strips along the left and right edges. Turn the bow collar piece over and line up the left side of the piece with the left side of the face piece on the box top base and the bottom of the piece with the corresponding slit on the face piece (center, about ¼ of the distance from the bottom of the face piece). Press in place to adhere. There will be an approximately 1/2” wide strip of the bow collar piece that will go beyond the end of the box top on the right side, just as with the face piece earlier. This is correct, and this area will come into play later in the assembly process.

6. Cover the center of the back of the bow piece with glue, line it up over the corresponding curved slit (right above the bow collar), and press in place to adhere. Glue the second layer of the bow (the center oval) in place over top of the bow piece.

7. Add adhesive to the left tab of the box base. If using liquid glue, wait until after this step to add it so it doesn’t dry out. Because there are several layers of paper and adhesive or glue on the box base, it may be a little bit stiff. To get it ready for shaping into a cylinder, gently bend and curve the piece until it loses any stiffness. Three or four bends usually does the trick.

8. Fold the box top into a cylinder shape and line up the bottom of the left top tab as closely as possible with the notch between the right top tab and the long tab. Line up the bottom left corner as closely as possible with the notch where the long tab begins at the bottom of the box base. Press in place to adhere.

Die Cut Reindeer Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 2

9. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, on the portion of the face piece to the left of the back seam.

10. Adhere the piece in place.

11. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, from the still un-adhered portion of the face piece. Press in place over the piece in Steps 9 and 10 to adhere. Repeat this process for the ends of the bow collar.

12. If you haven’t already, fold the top tabs on the box top inward.

13. There are two pairs of antlers in the box kit. Each piece has a score line toward the bottom. Glue each pair together, leaving the area below the score line unglued.

14. One of the four circles included in the kit has two slots cut into it. Slide the bottoms of the antlers into the slots up to the score lines. Fold the tabs below the scorelines out in opposite directions.

15. Place a small amount of glue under each of the tabs and glue in place.

16. Turn the box top upside down . Cover the outer edge of one of the smaller two circles in the kit with liquid glue and place it down into the box top, glue side down.

Die Cut Reindeer Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 3

17. Press the circle into place using your fingers.

18. Turn the box top over so the tabs are facing up. If necessary, adhere any loose tabs in place with glue. Cover the bottom of the antler piece with glue, line it up over the box top, and press into place.

For the Box Bottom

19. Add adhesive to the long tab on the left of the box bottom piece. Bend the piece into a cylinder shape and line up the bottom of the tab on the end as closely as possible with the notch where the bottom of the top tab and the long tab meet. Line up the bottom corner as closely as possible with the notch where the long tab begins at the bottom of the piece. Press in place to adhere.

20. If you haven’t done so already, fold the box bottom tabs inward.

21. Add glue around the edge of the smaller of the remaining two circles. Place the circle, glue side down, into the box bottom.

22. Press the circle into place using your fingers.

23. Turn the box bottom over so the tabs are facing up. Glue any loose tabs into place, if necessary. Cover the bottom of the remaining circle with glue, line up over the box bottom, and press into place to adhere. Fill the bottom of the box with candy, gifts, or other goodies and slide the top of the box over the bottom to complete.

DIY Die Cut Cylinder Snowman Gift Box

Here’s what you’ll need:

Instructions

Die Cut Snowman Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 1

1. The two largest pieces in this box kit (and all of the kits in this collection) are the box top and the box bottom. The box top (photo: top) is slightly shorter. The tabs are on the top for the box top and on the bottom for the box bottom, with the long tabs on the left on both. Oopsie! I didn’t realize until I was processing the photos that the tab for the box bottom was turned to the right in this photo. You can really assemble the bottom of the box either way, but I like to keep both tabs on the left for uniformity.

2. Turn the face piece over to the back and place vertical strips of adhesive approximately 1/2” to 3/4” wide on either end, lining them up as close to the edge as you can. Then, cover the remainder of the back with double-sided adhesive or glue. If using liquid glue, cover all but 1/2” to 3/4” wide strips on either end of the piece.

3. Remove the protective paper from all of the double-sided adhesive pieces EXCEPT the vertical strips on each end (if using this type of adhesive). Line up the top left corner of the face piece with the notch where the long side tab and first top tab meet on the box top. There will be an approximately 1/2” wide strip of the face piece that will go beyond the end of the box top on the right side. This is correct, and this area will come into play later in the assembly process. Press the face piece down onto the box top to adhere.

4. Glue the eyes, nose, and coal/buttons in place using the corresponding slits in the face piece as guides. A sticky tool, like a Quick Stik or a Pick Me Up, isn’t necessary here but definitely comes in handy for placing smaller pieces like these.

5. Place small strips of double-sided adhesive along the left and right edges of the back of the bowtie collar. Leave these areas unglued if using liquid glue. Cover the rest of the back of the piece with adhesive or glue and, if using an adhesive with protective / backer paper, remove it from JUST the center area, leaving the paper on the strips along the left and right edges. Turn the bowtie collar piece over and line up the left side of the piece with the left side of the face piece on the box top base and the top of the piece with the corresponding slit on the face piece (center, just below the curved slit below the nose). Press in place to adhere. There will be an approximately 1/2” wide strip of the bowtie collar piece that will go beyond the end of the box top on the right side, just as with the face piece earlier. This is correct, and this area will come into play later in the assembly process.

6. Cover the center of the back of the bowtie piece with glue, line it up over the corresponding curved slit (right above the bow collar), and press in place to adhere. Glue the second layer of the bowtie (the center oval) in place over top of the bow piece.

7. Add adhesive to the left tab of the box base. If using liquid glue, wait until after this step to add it so it doesn’t dry out. Because there are several layers of paper and adhesive or glue on the box base, it may be a little bit stiff. To get it ready for shaping into a cylinder, gently bend and curve the piece until it loses any stiffness. Three or four bends usually does the trick.

8. Fold the box top into a cylinder shape and line up the bottom of the left top tab as closely as possible with the notch between the right top tab and the long tab. Line up the bottom left corner as closely as possible with the notch where the long tab begins at the bottom of the box base. Press in place to adhere.

Die Cut Snowman Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 2

9. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, on the portion of the face piece to the left of the back seam.

10. Adhere the piece in place.

11. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, from the still un-adhered portion of the face piece. Press in place over the piece in Steps 9 and 10 to adhere. Repeat this process for the ends of the bowtie collar.

12. If you haven’t already, fold the top tabs on the box top inward.

13. Turn the box top upside down . There are six circles in this box kit. The two smallest are for the hat, which we’ll make a little later. For now, we’re focusing on the four larger circles. Two of the circles are slightly smaller than the other two. Cover the outer edge of one of the smaller two circles in the kit with liquid glue and place it down into the box top, glue side down. Press the circle into place using your fingers.

14. Turn the box top over so the tabs are facing up. If necessary, adhere any loose tabs in place with glue. Cover the bottom of one of the larger circles with glue, line it up over the box top, and press into place.

For the Box Bottom

15. Add adhesive to the long tab on the left of the box bottom piece. Bend the piece into a cylinder shape and line up the bottom of the tab on the end as closely as possible with the notch where the bottom of the top tab and the long tab meet. Line up the bottom corner as closely as possible with the notch where the long tab begins at the bottom of the piece. Press in place to adhere.

16. If you haven’t done so already, fold the box bottom tabs inward.

Die Cut Snowman Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 3

17. Add glue around the edge of the smaller of the remaining two circles. Place the circle, glue side down, into the box bottom.

18. Press the circle into place using your fingers.

19. Turn the box bottom over so the tabs are facing up. Glue any loose tabs into place, if necessary. Cover the bottom of the remaining circle with glue, line up over the box bottom, and press into place to adhere.

For the Hat

20. Add adhesive to the long tab on the left of the hat piece.

21. Place small strips of double-sided adhesive along the left and right edges of the hat band piece. Leave these areas unglued if using liquid glue. Cover the rest of the back of the piece with adhesive or glue and, if using an adhesive with protective / backer paper, remove it from JUST the center area, leaving the paper on the strips along the left and right edges. Turn the hat band piece over and line up the left side of the piece against where the adhesive is on the long side tab, about 1/4” above the bottom set of smaller tabs. There will be an approximately 1/2” wide strip of the hat band piece that will go beyond the end of the hat base on the right side. This is correct, and this area will come into play later in the assembly process.

22. Bend the hat piece into a cylinder shape and line up the bottom of the tab on the end as closely as possible with the notch where the bottom of the top tab and the long tab meet. Line up the bottom corner as closely as possible with the notch where the long tab begins at the bottom of the piece. Press in place to adhere.

23. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, hat band piece to the left of the back seam. Adhere the piece in place. Remove the protective backing paper from the adhesive, or add glue if using liquid adhesive, from the still un-adhered portion of the hat band piece. Press in place over the piece that you adhered previously.

24. Fold the top set of tabs inward, and fold the bottom set of tabs outward.

Die Cut Snowman Cylinder Box Assembly Instructions, Part 4

25. Add glue around the edge of the smaller of the two circles. Place the circle, glue side down, into the box bottom.

26. Press the circle into place using your fingers.

27. Turn the hat over so the inner facing tabs are facing up. Glue any loose tabs into place, if necessary. Cover the bottom of the remaining circle with glue, line up over the hat piece, and press into place to adhere.

Please note: I widened the brim of the hat a bit after taking the photos for this tutorial, so if the brim pieces don’t look exactly the same in the following steps, this is why.

28. Cover the bottom of one of the brim pieces (rings) with glue, place it over top of the hat piece, and slide it down to the bottom. Press down over the outward facing bottom tabs to adhere in place.

29. Turn the hat over and cover the bottom of the brim with glue. Line up the second brim piece (ring) over top and press it down onto the glued area to adhere in place.

30. Cover the bottom of the hat brim with glue and glue the hat in place on top of the top of the snowman box.

31. Fill the bottom of the box with candy, gifts, or other goodies and slide the top of the box over the bottom to complete.

Video Tutorial : Make Cute Halloween Print & Cut Cards in Silhouette Studio

Cute Frankenstein's Monster Print & Cut Halloween Card

I love Silhouette’s print and cut option, and in this video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to make this super cute Halloween print and cut card in Silhouette Studio. Then, I’ll color the card using Distress Inks for the background and my new favorite, the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, for cute little Frankie.

In the video, I talk a little bit about printing onto watercolor paper. Because I’m using water-based color mediums for this project, a laser print or other water-resistant or waterproof ink is necessary. If you don’t have a laser printer and aren’t in the market for one, then you can always use whatever coloring mediums you’d like : Copic markers, colored pencils, etc. – the possibilities are pretty much endless.

My absolute favorite paper for mixed media and watercolor is Strathmore Bristol Vellum. Its smooth finish makes it the perfect choice for printing digital stamps, and the Zig pens blend beautifully on it.

Make Quick & Easy Die Cut Halloween Treat Boxes

DIY Quick & Easy Die Cut Halloween Treat Bags

The spookiest day of the year will soon be here, and these quick and easy Halloween treat bags make it a snap to give out tricks and treats to all of the little ghouls and goblins that will be knocking at your door on All Hallows’ Eve.

DIY Die Cut Halloween Treat Bags

Here’s what you’ll need:

Instructions :

Cut the bag and “boo!” die cuts using a digital die cutting machine. I used the Glitter Cardstock cut setting on the Cameo for the glitter paper and the regular Cardstock cut setting set to double cut for the metallic card stock.

When all of your pieces are cut, adhere the “boo!” die cuts to the front panel of the treat bag using craft glue. Then, assemble the box using a double-sided adhesive runner. You can use craft glue for this, too, but I find that the adhesive runner makes the assembly process go much faster.

Fill your treat bags with goodies for the little ghosts and ghoulies, and you’re set!

Pineapples, along with citrus fruits, are the hottest things around this summer, and today I’m sharing a video tutorial for making these fun, three dimensional paper pineapples that you can use to embellish everything from gift packages to garlands to tropical-themed Christmas trees. You can download the free printable templates for the pineapples, as well as templates for an orange / grapefruit and lemon / lime below, and you’ll need just a few basic supplies to make bunches of these sweet, tropical decorations!

Make 3D Paper Pineapple & Citrus Fruit Decorations

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • colored paper ( I used Neenah Astrobrights Solar Yellow and Terra Green 24lb text weight paper)*
  • the FREE printable templates for this project (download below)
  • a Silhouette Cameo or similar digital die cutting machine OR, if you don’t have a die cutting machine, a printer and scissors to cut out by hand
  • craft glue
  • thread and a needle to make the hanger for the pineapple

* I recommend using text weight paper for this because cardstock is a bit too heavy and adds a lot of bulk to the finished project. It also makes assembly somewhat more difficult.

I’m a Zazzle “Sew Good” Challenge Winner!

Zazzle "Sew Good" Challenge Winner : k.becca

It’s always been a dream of mine to have a fabric collection that features my patterns, and I was totally jazzed when Zazzle recently added fabric to their line of available products. Shortly after, Zazzle held a “Sew Good” design challenge, and you know I was all over that!

Well, imagine how excited I was when I found out that I was one of the “Sew Good” overall challenge winners. Woo hoo! Being chosen has really given me a nice dose of encouragement and hope that I might actually have a chance at having my own fabric line someday. I guess that, technically, I already do!

Stay tuned, because I’m planning on adding many more fabric designs to my Zazzle shop in the coming months. Here’s a peek at some of the patterns that are already in the shop:

DIY Die Cut Magnets

DIY Die Cut Magnets Tutorial

I can’t believe that I waited this long to try out the Silhouette adhesive magnet paper. Guess that I’m always a bit apprehensive about working with a new medium, but I don’t know why I was in this case because this stuff seriously rocks.

Today I’ll be showing you how you can easily turn your die cuts into super fun fridge magnets with just a bit of additional cutting. But let me warn you that it’s addictive. I’ve been wanting to turn everything into a magnet since I made these!

Note: When I cut the magnet paper, I used the recommended settings in Silhouette Design Studio, and it cut with no problem at all. There was just one extra bit of the magnet paper left on the pointed indentation on one of the four leaf clover’s leaves – undoubtedly my fault for being impatient and trying to remove the shapes from the piece of magnet paper too quickly – but I was able to remove it cleanly by gently pulling it from the clover piece.

Make Die Cut Magnets with a Silhouette Cameo

Here’s what you’ll need:

DIY Die Cut Magnets, Step 1

Step 1 :

Cut your die cuts from cardstock and assemble them. Cut the base of each shape twice, once from cardstock (I used black so the faces would stand out) and once from adhesive magnet paper.

Note: The Charms die cuts come with a face piece and a base piece, so you won’t need to make any adjustments in Design Studio to cut the base shapes; however, if the die cut that you’re using doesn’t have a base piece, then you can simply ungroup the shape and remove any of the details that you don’t want to cut on the base before you send it to the machine for cutting.

DIY Die Cut Magnets, Step 2

Step 2 :

Remove the adhesive backer piece from the magnet base shape.

DIY Die Cut Magnets, Step 3

Step 3 :

Line the base shape up behind the die cut and press firmly to adhere. Pop your magnet onto the fridge and enjoy!

Rainbow Card Die Cuts Tip

Cascading Rainbow Card Die Cuts from k.becca

If you’ve picked up the new Cascading Rainbow Card Front, then you might be looking at the cut files and wondering why in the world there’s a plain rectangle included. Good question, and here’s the answer:

Rainbow Card Die Cuts Tip

The rectangular piece is the base for the rainbow. I thought that it would be much easier for you to assemble the rainbow and center it on the front of your cards if I included a base piece as a guide. Plus, with the base, the rainbow becomes a standalone element and can be attached to all sorts of things, not just cards.

Rainbow Card Die Cuts : Step 1

Simply glue all of your rainbow pieces onto the base, and you’re good to go!

Rainbow Card Die Cuts : Step 2

Add the sleepy cloud, and you’re finished with this cute card. And, yeah, I totally attached the rainbow backwards, but it’s still fun and colorful, right?

The Lucky Charm Collection

I shared a peek at the new Lucky Charm collection with you in last week’s Charmies box card tutorial, and today I want to officially introduce you to the new collection, which includes fun die cut shapes and phrases, digital stamps and a print/color/cut digital stamp set, colorful rainbow card fronts (more on those soon), and digital printable patterns in light and bright colorways that are great for card making and paper crafts.

How to Make the Charmies Cereal Box Card

How to Make the Charmies Cereal Box Card

This sweet, cereal-themed box card is a great way to send a “good luck” message to someone you care about, and today I’ll be showing you how you can assemble your own. Can you tell that I had a lot of fun designing this?

How to Make the Charmies Cereal Box Card

Here’s what you’ll need:

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 1

Step 1:

Die cut all of the card kit pieces. Fold the box card base along the score lines, and add double-sided adhesive (or glue) to the short side flap.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 2

Step 2 :

Fold the short side flap in, line it up with the back right side of the card base, and press the card base flat to adhere.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 3

Step 3 :

Attach the side panels, back panel, and cereal box logo (top left corner) to the card base. Attach the first piece of the rainbow element to the front of the card. I attach the corner piece first – in this case, the blue piece – because it makes for much easier placement of the rest of the pieces of the rainbow.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 4

Step 4 :

Attach the rest of the rainbow pieces, taking care to line them up along the top, sides, and bottom. The bottom of the rainbow will start to form the outline of the “charmies” cloud.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 5

Step 5 :

Attach the cloud piece to the bottom of the card.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 6

Step 6 :

Fold down the scored flaps at the top of the card.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 7

Step 7 :

Fold the rectangular card inserts (2) along the score lines and set aside. Attach the marshmallow charm pieces to the cereal piece.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 8

Step 8 :

Attach the finished cereal piece to one of the rectangular card inserts.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 9

Step 9 :

Add glue or double-sided adhesive to the side flaps of the card insert, fold them back, and carefully lower the insert into place inside of the card. I positioned it about 3/8” from the front of the card, but you can place it wherever you like it best. Press the insert flaps against the sides of the card base to adhere.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 10

Step 10 :

Experiment with where you want to place the “good luck” ticket piece before you attach it to the second card insert piece. I wanted mine to be at a bit of an angle, but you can angle yours however you’d like. The only thing that you’ll want to make sure of is that your finished card will still fit your envelope.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 11

Step 11 :

Attach the “good luck” ticket to the second card insert and position the insert inside your card in the same way as in Step 9. I placed the second insert pretty close to the first, about 1/4” or so behind it. Press the card flat to adhere the insert and to make sure that the ticket doesn’t stick out beyond the card too much if you’ve angled it.

Charmies Box Card Tutorial : Step 12

Step 12 :

Open the card to test its movement and to make sure that everything is properly positioned.

Aaaaand you’re finished!

Quick & Easy Die Cut Mini Card + Free SVG Cut File

Quick & Easy Die Cut Mini Card + Free SVG Cut File | K.becca

I’ve been on a mini card kick lately, and I whipped up this die cut “hi” card (3″ x 3″) in a jiffy the other day using the reverse “hi” from the Hello Words & Phrases Die Cuts (Set 2) and the dots pattern from the Hello Digital Patterns set. I attached the patterned paper to the base with double-sided adhesive and used dimensional foam adhesive to attach the “hi” on top.

I created the “hi” square in Silhouette Studio by centering the reverse “hi” sentiment inside the smaller blank square. You can click on the image below to save the blank SVG cut file template; there’s so much that you can do with this little card!

The Hello Collection

Sometimes you just want to say “hey” to someone, and it doesn’t happen to be their birthday or Christmas or some other occasion. This is where the Hello collection comes in. Inspired by the humble “hello” card, I designed this collection of printable patterns, die cuts, and digital stamp elements that contain all sorts of hellos, heys, and how you doin’s. The designs in the collection are perfect for cardmakers, but there are also many, many creative possibilities for hello-themed scrapbook pages and packaging projects. I can’t wait to see what you create!

You’re the Cherry on Top Die Cut Handmade Card

You're the Cherry on Top Die Cut Handmade Card | k.becca #cardmaking #diecut #svg

I was all about the die cuts with this card! First, I made a simple background and cut it out with my Silhouette using the cherry and crosshatch patterns from the I Heart Ice Cream Patterned Papers set.  I attached the background to an A2 card with double-sided adhesive. Then, I cut out a piece of white cardstock (2″ x 4.25″) and embossed it with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder to echo the crosshatch pattern in the background. I attached it to the card with dimensional foam adhesive and glued the die cut cherry and “You’re the Cherry on Top” phrase onto it.

Finally, I thought that the card needed little something more, so I used Glossy Accents on the cherry to make it shine. I can’t help myself sometimes with the Glossy Accents!

Watercolor + Die Cut Ice Cream-Themed Handmade Cards

I’ve been having lots of fun making projects with the “I Heart Ice Cream” goodies, and this week I’ll be sharing a few of the ice creamy projects that I’ve made. First up is a pair of cards created with a combo of watercolor pencils, die cut phrases, and print and cut shapes.

You're a Treat Handmade Card | k.becca #watercolor #cardmaking

These cards are slightly smaller than A2 size at 3 1/2″ x 5″. First, I cut a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock in half and scribbled in an area on the cardstock with three different colors of watercolor pencils (Loew-Cornell Viridian, Dark Chrome, and Salmon). I brushed over the area with a wet brush and set it aside to dry.

Then, I print and cut out several hearts and two ice cream cone shapes from the I Heart Ice Cream SVG Digital Stamps + Border Die Cuts set on my Silhouette, plus two of the “You’re a Treat” phrases from I Heart Ice Cream Phrases Die Cuts (Set 1). I glued the phrase two phrase layers together to give the sentiment some dimension, and I colored the ice cream cones in with the Salmon and Dark Chrome watercolor pencils. Since I printed the cones onto regular cardstock, I had to be careful not to go over the colored area too much with the wet brush because I didn’t want the cardstock to pill. I added some Diamond Stickles to the hearts, allowed the ice cream cones and the hearts to dry, and then attached them to the dried watercolor background with foam adhesive (the cones) and glue (the hearts).

Finally, I attached the watercolor piece to the card front with double-sided adhesive and attached the “You’re a Treat” phrase with glue.

You're Sweet Handmade Watercolor + Die Cut Card | k.becca #svg #watercolor #cardmaking

For the “You’re Sweet” card, I used the same technique as above, with Dark Chrome and Dark Orange watercolor pencils on the creamsicle, but I blended the watercolor background a bit more and added dots of Diamond Stickles on the background.
