It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Drummer & Friends – RDG005 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum – H090 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This is the start of a new month and we’re celebrating the Christmas Cheer release for the month of September at High Hopes.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the background paper from Heartfelt Creations – Festive Winterscapes Collection – Sheet 9A paper to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. The sentiment was then stamped onto the background paper using Versamark Ink and heat embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.
The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. I fussy cut around it and then inked the edges with a black marker. I popped it up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape. I inked under the image with C2 copic marker to create a shadow and finish off the card.
