Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design – Baby Gnome from the new January 2022 release. Congrats to all of the families who received a new blessing into their lives this January and also to all of those future parents-to-be this year too!
I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I used the same paper for the front and back. I first cut the Echo Park – Hello Baby – It’s a Girl cardstock to be the same size as the base card. Using my Cuttlebug and Art Impressions – Oval Double Stitched Dies, I cut an oval from the floral patterned side. I inked around the edges of the floral oval with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Seedless Preserves and for the edges of the oval on the larger piece with the baskets showing, I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I taped the 2 pieces back to together using some Scotch Tape and then using double-sided tape, I applied the full background piece to the base card. I inked around the entire outer edges with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Seedless Preserves.
I imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut with scissors. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the back of the image and it was popped up onto the card in the centre of the Oval. The sentiments were also brought into Microsoft Word and combined together. I created a rectangular shape and put it behind the type. I added an Aqua colour to fill in the background and then gave it a 4 pt border. Once it was printed out, I just cut around the edges of the rectangle with my cutter and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around the frame. I added some U-Line double sided tape and popped it up onto the bottom of the card. To finish everything off, I added in a few CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots.
