Hello - Partial Die Cutting and Simple Copic Coloring

Hey everyone!  I hope your summer is treating you well.  Ours has been a busy one!  I'm stopping in today to share a quick card with you, that features some stamps from Clearly Besotted, as well as some simple Copic coloring and partial die cutting.

I love this Keep In Touch set from Clearly Besotted.  It's such a fun way to send a quick note.  And it's perfect for coloring...with whichever medium you choose.  Today I'm using Copics.  I also love that there are coordinating dies, which make it perfect for this fun partial die cutting technique.  I've used the die to cut just a portion of the image so that I can tuck the sentiment behind the image.  It's just another fun twist for this card.

I've been working on my Copic skills lately too!  Although I don't claim to be an expert, I try to keep it really simple when using my Copic markers.  This keeps it enjoyable for me.  I don't worry about perfection...and you shouldn't either.  The recipient of the card is going to love the handmade card you give.

Once my phone was colored, I added some fun finishing touches.  I added some Glossy Accents to the heart in the center of the phone.  I also gave the entire phone a nice coating of Wink Of Stella.  These little touches don't take long and really add a lot to the card.

I've included a video below walking you through the entire creation of this card.  I've also included links to all the products used in this project below.

Don't forget, you can also check me out on Instagram...you'll see how I'm keeping busy this summer.  And make sure you subscribe to me on YouTube as well, that way you won't miss any of my crafty videos.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've enjoyed this quick card.  And I hope you have a fabulous day!
