I'm very excited to have my inaugural post on the Art Impressions blog today! I had a lot of fun making my project this week... with the end of the school year upon us, I decided to make a thank you gift set that would be great to give to a teacher. I used the fabulous At The Movies Set -(sku#4237) from the Girlfriends Collection to make the card, then a matching gift card holder for a movie theatre gift card, and finally a cute little popcorn holder that I'll wrap up in cellophane to complete the gift.
I used the lovely Schoolhouse papers from October Afternoon, which inspired my Copic colour choices for the cute Flick Chicks image. I used my sewing machine to zigzag my background pieces onto my card base.
Before I started, I cut out all of my die cut pieces using my Cricut Artiste cartridge (M key!) which had the cute little popcorn holder, gift card and film strip. I assembled the popcorn holder and gift card keeper adding a few accents of coordinating paper to finish them off. I had a great time doing my little photo shoot, and had to be careful not to get any greasy popcorn on my projects! Here are the Copics that I used to colour up the gals:
