Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Having You Around – D19078 for the main image and sentiment. There’s nothing like the love between a boy and his faithful companion. They become best friends as they both grow older together!!!
To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I also cut a panel the same size out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used this to create my background using stencils I created to make clouds by Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and inks listed below by Tim Holtz. Copic markers were used to colour in the water and I used My Favourite Things – Slimline Grassy Edges Stencil as a guide for the grass on the bottom of the card. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the sentiment and then embossed the ink with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I used double-sided tape and attached my background panel to the base card.
Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Studio Light – Wonderful Autumn, I cut the trees and landscape out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Copic markers, I coloured these in as well. Then I layered them on top of each other and used glue to adhere them to the coloured background.
Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured it in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image by hand and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the image and it was placed on top of the background to finish off the card.
