Last weekend, my family and I were invited to a bonfire at a friend’s house. We had a great time roasting marshmallows and playing with their new dog.
This is the thank you card that the kiddos and I created to thank our friends.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I wanted to make a one layer card so I started by creating a card base from water color paper. Next I stamped the images on the card base. I only masked the single marshmallow on the stick. I wanted that marshmallow to be on fire and on the stick. We burned quite a few marshmallows that night.
I added the sentiment on the top section of the card and used a thin black Sharpie to draw in the horizon line.
I used some water color pencils to color the whole card. The kiddos helped me with the grass and sky. It worked out great. I was able to add water to smooth out the coloring. I kept the color away from the sentiment so that it would remain readable. Once the card was dry I was able to mail it.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Love You S’more
Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp’s Happy Howlidays
Ink: Versa Fine
Hope you enjoyed the card
