Might Need Some Help!!


My older brother is a retired fireman. Today, I’m sharing this fun image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs called Fireman Gnome that I made for his birthday.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I printed out a second image onto regular paper with just the fireman and then used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. The cut out image was used as a mask over top of the main image while I created the flames in the background. I used a variety of Tim Holtz inks listed below and the stencil from Honey Bee Stamps – Flames.

Once the background was completed, I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then, I attached the image to the base using double-sided tape. My brother loved his card and I hope you do too!
