Happy Saturday everybody! I hope you’re having a nice weekend. Unfortunately for me, this is the last weekend of my spring break so college will be kicking off again on Monday. Hopefully I will be able to post videos more frequently because I had a lot of fun making more videos for you again! We’ll see how it goes and I will keep you updated. 🙂

In today’s video I am creating a cute tri fold/pop-up card featuring the adorable Rooting for You set from Lawn Fawn.

When I first saw this stamp set, I never thought I would need it that much. I thought it was cute but I didn’t buy it. Instead I got some other Lawn Fawn goodies. However, after a while the Rooting for You set started popping up in my head and I just couldn’t forget about vegetables and their cute smiley faces. I know. It sounds crazy, right? So since I really couldn’t forget about it, I went ahead and ordered it and oh boy, I am so glad I did that!

I used several inks from The Ton to ink up my fun veggie pals. Next, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. However, you could just fussy cut them. After adhering the leaves to the vegetables with Tombow Mono Multi Glue, I moved on to the next part of my card!

rooting-closeupI wanted to create a fun trifold card so I had to do some measuring and scoring. After wasting a lot of card stock, I came up with the measurements that work. Simply cut a piece of white card stock slightly larger than 10½ inch wide by 5½ inch tall. Then, I scored this card stock at 3, 5/8 inch and at 7, 1/8. After folding the scored lines, I got a perfect trifold card. Next, I die cut a circle using the Circle Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn. I traced that shape and die cut it again out of some masking paper.

I was really surprised at how good I did with the ink blending. Normally, I never seem to achieve a soft blended look. However, this time I put really light pressure on the tool and I used a small amount of ink. I guess that’s the trick! I wanted the vegetables to kind of pop up, so I cut three small slits so I could tuck in all of the veggies. I used a bit of Tombow Mono Adhesive to make sure they won’t fall out. To finish off my card, I stamped and die cut the watering can from the Rooting For You stamp set and on the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment with Soft Garnet ink from The Ton.

That’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed this video. Please let me know if you have any questions! I hope to see you soon! 🙂 xo
