Spring is just around the corner!
It’s Wednesday, and for today’s card I used Andreas Kitties – R202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Sending Smiles – G276 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This cheery little girl is hoping to bring smiles to everyone she knows and hopefully put a smile on your face too. She’s already for Spring! Are you??? I know I am. LOL!
To make this card, I started out with a 6″ x 6″ card base and then mounted the background onto the card. I cut the ovals and scalloped oval using my Cuttlebug and die cut from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. The sentiment was cut out using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies.
For the main image, I used Copic markers to colour it all in. I fussy cut around the image and then traced around all of the edges using my black Copic marker. I edged around all of the borders of the die cuts with various Tim Holtz distress inks. I assembled the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
To add the last finishing touch to the card, I added in some flowers along the side and a pearl in the centre for all of the yellow flowers.
