Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Soccer Gnome from the new May release. This image also comes with 3 more sentiments, “I Bet You Play Soccer”, “Because Your A Keeper” and “I Get A Kick Out of You!”.
To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then again on to plain paper using my HP Printer. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut the image out of the plain paper to use as a mask. I put this over top of my main image character and added in the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Broken China and Tumbled Glass and a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies. Then I removed the mask. I coloured in the remainder of the image with Copic markers and then trimmed it off to be 5.25″ x 4″.
For the base, The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards 2012 pre-made cards was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the coloured image directly to the base card using double-sided tape.
