It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Hedgie Stack – TDG027 for the image and Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 for the sentiment. These little hedgies are excited to wish someone special a very Happy Birthday!
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 5.5″. I cut the Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold cardstock background paper to the size of 5.5″ x 5.5″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. AITOH Origami – Print Chiyogami – Butterflies paper was cut to the size of 5.25″ x 5.25″ and glued on top of the gold paper. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Essentials: Folk Edge Squares, I die cut another square from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold die cut onto the floral background using U-Line double-sided tape. I stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black.
The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen to create some more texture in the fur by just dabbing it everywhere. I’m hoping that it looks like little spikes at the end of their fur. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using a 3/4″ punch, I punched out the circle surrounding the sentiment. Then, using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut a slightly larger circle out of a scrap piece of gold paper from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the gold circle. Using some U-Line double-sided tape, I popped it up onto the coloured image. Lastly, to complete my card, I added in some PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix and flowers gems from the Dollar Store.
