I wanted to use every chuck on this card. To fit them all, I had to make a slimline card. I’ll have the dimensions and colors used below.
Slimline cards are 8-1/2″ x 7″. The 7″ side is scored at 3-1/2″. For the card front, my size is 8-3/8″ x 3-3/8″. SU doesn’t sell envelopes for these anymore, but these cards do fit in a #10 envelopes- the usual size for regular mail. They are 4-1/8″ x 9-1/2″.
Enough math! 🤣 Let’s talk about the coloring.
The only paper used on this card is Basic White. I colored the card front with Azure Afternoon with a Blending Brush.
For the hills, I used the Basic Borders dies and cut two pieces with Basic White. I colored them with Lemon Lime Twist ink with a Blending Brush. I slightly layered one over the over and adhered at the bottom of the card.
For the chucks, I colored them with Blends. Main parts of them are Lemon Lolly, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral. For their eyelids, I used Crumb Cake. For their beaks, I used Petal Pink. For the wattles and the one tongue, I used Cajun Craze.
Their skateboards are Balmy, Lemon, Granny, and Calypso. The bottoms and the wheels are Smoky Slate.
Cakes are Balmy, Lemon, Granny, and Calypso.
The sun was die cut with Basic White and I colored with Lemon Lolly with a Blending Brush. I made it very light.
A very bright card- perfect for a kid!
