Hi everyone! I want to share a DT project I created for the iCopic challenge - Spring Colored Project"! I love this time of year and just can't get enough of it! I feel like doing the "Happy Dance"! That brings me to the project I created for you with the adorable image, Milton with Poppy from Wild Rose Studio.
Before I go into the tutorial for this 3-D project, I want to share some great news. There will be a new, limited edition of popular Copic Markers coming out soon. Pre-order is happening now at iCopic!
Many of us spend a lot of hours creating diminutional cards and shudder to think of them being crushed in an envelope. For cards that will be delivered by mail, I place them in a Priority Mail box before mailing. The cost is $5.35 - but I can spend hours to days creating one card. But what do you do for those you just hand to those special people? I have created a little 3-D Envelope that will be a beautiful way to present the card that you spent hours creating.
I Started with Y26 in my shadow area.
I blended from dark to light adding Y21, Y13, Y11 and Y000.
I worked on a lingo petal at a time in order to work while my ink was still wet.
I used C7, C5 and C3 for the center of my poppy. My grass and foliage was colored with G40, YG63 and YG67.
I colored little Milton with E30, E31, E34, E35, E37. I used a stippling method. I then used my Copic Colorless Blender to add more texture. I doodled on his nose with Copic Multiliner Sepia 0.3 mm and on his ear with Copic Multiliner Pink 0.3 mm.
Close up of my punched flowers. I used a snowflake punch for my foliage.
This is the assembled card I did not want my flowers to get crushed by a 2A envelope so I created a 3-3-D envelope to hold the card.
I started with aa 8 in X 11 in. piece for firm card stock.
With the card stock in vertical position, I scored at 1/2 in, 1 in, 7 in and 7 1/2 in.
With the card stock positioned in landscape orientation, score at 2 1/2 in, 3 in, 7 1/2 in and 8 in.
Cut coordinating card stock and designer paper to coordinate with your card.
5.5 in x 2 in.
5.5 in x 4 in.
5.5in x 2.5 in
5.25 in x 1.37 in
5.25 in x 3.75 in.
5.25 in x 2.25 in
I rounded the corners of the top flap and top of the side flap.
Finished 3-D Envelope.
The perfect size for your 3-D cards!
