Avery Elle: Lucky and We Go Together

Just stopping in with some fun Avery Elle cards today:)  This first card pairs the new Lucky set with the older Circle It set.  This card is a preteen girl, so I went with fun bright colors and enamel dots.  I used the tiny dots from Circle It to make my own custom bokeh/confetti background.  Love the happy colors:)


I also have a card that I didn't get to share last week.  We have a lot of boys in our family so I always feel like I'm looking for a masculine card!  It's such a challenge to create something festive but not boring or, even worse, girly;)  That's why I was so happy to see the little guitar and drum stamps in the new Avery Elle We Go Together set:)  Here's what I made with them!


First I stamped a tone-on-tone background with the guitars.  I used Fog ink on Fog card stock.  Then I die cut the letters (using my Avery's Alpha dies) onto a triangle panel and stamped on the drum set.  Part of the drum set continued over the bottom of the letter "Y", so I stamped it on the red backing panel and colored it in with a white pen.  The last step was to paper piece the parts of the drum set and glue them on with foam tape.  I colored the drums just a bit to match the gray background.  Fun stuff!


Thanks for popping in today!  Please stop by Heather's blog and check out her cute card!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
