It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Lasso Some Snow – TDG021 for the main image and Don’t Worry – FDG021 for the sentiment. We all need a little bit of encouragement every now and then and this little snowman is here to give us some.
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 used Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter cardstock cut to the same size as the base card for the background. I attached this to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, a mixture of square dies from My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies, I die cut cardstock from Scrapbook.com Neutrals Smooth Cardstock and also Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the tan square and applied it directly to the background. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the dark brown square and popped up onto the centre of the tan square.
With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock square and coloured it in with Copic markers. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen were used on the eyes of the snowman. I applied U-line douhble-sided tape to the back of the completed image and popped it up onto the centre of the dark brown square.
With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock and then die cut it out using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies. I inked around the edges using Copic – E59 marker to give it a dark brown border. I used my knife to remove the double border from the piece left behind and then traced the shape of the ribbon onto the remaining piece of Scrapbook.com Neutrals Smooth Cardstock. I cut this out with my cutter and scissors. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to both pieces and the completed sentiment was popped up onto the card below the main image to complete the card.
