Front of the card:I began by embossing the card with my Sizzix Texture Boutique. The folder I used is actually a QuikKutz folder called Polka Dots. I used my Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Inker to add dimension to the embossing. I welded the words "Orange U Sweet" to a frame from Lyrical Letters. The font is cut at 1 1/4 inches and the frame is cut at 3 1/4 inches. I cut the welded font and frame out of glittered paper from Hobby Lobby. The orange was cut from My World. I cut the orange at 2 1/2 inches in both watercolor cardstock and chipboard. I then took my watercolor pencils and watercolored the cardstock to add depth, keeping the darkest on the edges. Once the watercolor dried, I stamped with black Staz On a cute little PeechyKeen Face. I used my white Signo pen to fill in the eyes and my black BIC Mark-it for the blacks of the eyes. Then I added a thin layers of Stickles to the orange (Orange Peel), brown (Cinnamon) and green (Lime Green) avoiding the eyes. While the orange dried, I began work on the chipboard piece. I painted the chipboard with acrylic paints in orange (main part), brown (stem), and green (leaf), making sure to cover the edges of the die cut. Once both are I glued the two oranges together. Then I applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents over top of the Stickles.
Inside of the card:This was a quick little phrase I made using Lyrical Letters. Cut and welded at about 1". I cut a proportional orange mat and embossed again with Polka Dots folder. Then I Xyroned the phrase and added it to the orange mat. Finally I took a paper towel and dabbed the font and the embossing with the same Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Inker.
