It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Let’s Chat – TLF030 for the image and Perfect Blend – FLL022 for the sentiment. I don’t drink coffee, but really loved these little gnome buddies having a cup of coffee and getting a chance to chat.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Creative Memories – Hot Fudge cardstock to be the same size as the base card and attached it using double-sided tape. Your Next Stamp – The Perfect Blend cardstock was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Cuttlebug. I popped this up onto the base background using U-Line double-sided tape. The large square was die cut using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and Creative Memories – Hot Fudge cardstock. The smaller square was cut using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was then stamped with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and die cut it with My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers.
The card was now ready to finish being assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all of the remaining pieces and popped them up onto the card base.
