It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Walker Walter – TLF013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) from the new release for the main image and Speedy Recovery Background – U004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I have an older friend in the hospital right now waiting to have an operation and I thought this little card would definitely cheer him up.
To make my card this week, I used Recollections – Cape Cod cardstock for the base card which is 4.25″ x 5.5″. I stamped both the large background image and Walter using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.
Then I ran the background image through my Cuttlebug using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it.
Both images were coloured using Copic Markers. I edged around the background image and card base with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around “Walker Walter” and then outlined the image with Copic Markers C3 and C1. Next, I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered it to some Black cardstock. I again used the Scan and Cut to cut around the image. I thought the border was too large, so I just manually fussy cut around the image leaving a smaller black border around it.
To complete the card, I bumped up both the background and the main image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
