Craftin Desert Divas December Release | Delicious Wishes | Because Cookies

It’s time to share the final card I made with the December release from Craftin Desert Divas. You can see the previous cards I made with it here, here and here. This is also my very final card made as a Design Team member for Craftin Desert Divas. My term ended as the year ended. The end of the year was pretty intense life-wise (being ill, ongoing medical issues, losing my job, death in the family…) and I got behind on sharing projects, which is why this one is coming out to you a bit late. I hope you’ll enjoy it anyway.

For this one I started by creating a similar background to the one I’d used on my first card with the release, making a tone on tone pattern with the oven glove image from Delicious Wishes. I then die cut it with a circle die.

Additionally to the circle I printed out the kangaroo image from the set and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I decided to go with a red and white design for the accessories she’s wearing. Once I’d finished colouring I fussy cut the image out.

I chose a sentiment from the Say It Big stamp set and stamped it onto my die cut circle with red ink. I then created a red card base and adhered the circle and kangaroo, with a slight overlap, using foam tape so that they were popped up from the cardbase.

I think the red and white colour scheme on this card is very fun. Sometimes it’s nice to flip things and use a coloured card base with white accents rather than the usual white card base. The neutral colours of the kangaroo work well with it too.

  2. I’m sorry about your troubles. Life can really throw it at you sometimes and design team duties are the last of your worries. I’ve always enjoyed your cards in the Double D challenges and this is certainly no exception. Love your style of uncluttered card designs with stellar coloring. This is such an adorable image with the mama and baby. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Double D, and I most sincerely hope to see you again!
