Avocado Love Card

My love for “punny” cards (and avocados) continues with this cute card featuring the Avocuddle stamp and die set from Sizzix.

To start, I stamped a few of the images from the set on to some white cardstock using black ink.  Nuvo Aqua Flow pens had the perfect colors for the little avocados so I colored them with Fresh Green for the middles and Evergreen Fern for the outside.  Apple Red with a little Wink of Stella clear pen was used for the heart.

After coloring the images, I ran everything through my Sidekick to trim them out.

I love using stencils for a subtle background so using an A2 sized white notecard, I blended some Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade over the top of a PA Essentials stencil called Scallop Pattern.  I used some Post-It tape just to keep ink from getting on the back of the card, but otherwise, I kept the blending free-flowing in a vertical pattern.

I popped all the little pieces up on the front of the card using foam tape for a clean and simple greeting for someone special.

I love the way the Wink of Stella shimmers on that little heart.
