Color Me Thankful

Hi All! So if you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I've been participating in the Daily Marker's 30 Day Challenge. (#thedailymarker30day) If you haven't been following me on Instagram, please do! :) (Here's the link: @violets_n_sunshine)

Anyway, today's card was made from my Day 1 coloring piece. Let's take a look:

The base of this card is a standard A2 white notecard that I layered with gold and white striped paper from the retired "Happy Times" limited edition paper pack from Close To My Heart. I added a strip of black cardstock to the edge for contrast.

I etched the peonies onto vellum using Claritystamp's Peonies Groovi Plate and a stylus. I then colored the back of the vellum with my Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I added the layer to my card base using foam tape, and then hid the foam tape behind the banners and ribbon in the corner. Next, I cut "thanks" from black glitter cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Scripty Thanks die and popped it up on the card front with more foam tape. Finally, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the peonies for some extra shimmer and shine.

Here's a collage of close-ups:

And here's a look at the card once again:

I hope you enjoyed today's card. And don't forget to look me up on Instagram for more of #thedailymarker30day!

Have a fabulously creative day!



  1. Wow, your coloring is gorgeous! Question - instead of etching an image, can you stamp with Staz-On or heat emboss?
