KLM Digital Designs released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Farmer Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)! He’s taking a break from his busy farm chores just to wish you an extra special birthday!
To put the card together, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto some white cardstock.
I die cut another piece using the Copic paper with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set and my Cuttlebug. I coloured in the main image with copics and then tested out my new Brother Scan’ Cut machine for the first time to cut around the image. I think I need a little more practice, as I still had to fussy cut a bit when it was done. LOL! But, it was still pretty cool to see the cutter in motion. I designed my own background and coloured in the haystack, sky and grass. Then, I popped up the coloured image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed it onto the background.
For the sentiment, I used Microsoft Word to layer “Herd it was your” on top of each other, as the original was too long for my card. After printing it out, I fussy cut around it and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. I fussy cut a small border around that piece and then ran it also through the Xyron. I attached this to my coloured image.
Lastly, I attached the entire background to some blue cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″.
