Hello! Crystal here with an adorable card using SugarPea Design’s Reading Friends… oh my goodness… this set is so sweet! Reminds me of when I was a kid… I was always reading! Now I’m always card making… lol… well, when I can!

I started off by stamping the image on white card stock with my go to ink – Memento tuxedo black – and then I colored and colored… I loved coloring this image! I used the following Copic markers ~ Tree – E55, E57, G14, G17; Girls – E0000, E000, E00, R20, E99, YR23, YR24, E11, E31, YR02, YR16, Y000, Y13, B000, B12; Books – N0, Y06, Y35, R14, R27, E55, E57, G12, G14, B000, B02, B24; Sky Background – B0000, B000. I die cut the image and then mount it on a die cut yellow scalloped rectangle. I set that aside.

I cut the diagonal rainbow paper from Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow paper pack and mat it on white card stock. I then adhered that piece to a blue card base. I cut the blue notebook paper from the same Really Rainbow paper pack and adhered it to the card. I then popped up the main image on the card.

I used the EK Tools Powder Tool Applicator on a scrap of white card stock to keep any static from messing up my stamped sentiment and then using VersaMark watermark ink I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed ultra fine black embossing powder. My last touch was to add a few sequins from my stash. So cute! I love how this turned out! I hope you do too!

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
