It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a fun card using Burts Bath – R103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Filled With Bubbles – H119 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Burt sure looks happy as he’s letting all of his troubles float away! LOL!
To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the main background, I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Under The Sea paper cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the edges. Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die was used to cut out the shape for the sentiment and Die-Namics My Favourite Things – PCD Fishtail Figs STX for the flag behind the sentiment. I inked around the edges of the sentiment die cut with Copic Marker – BV04 to frame it. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers was used to ink around the edges of the flag. Avery Elle – Wonky Stitches Die was used to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.
I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI and coloured in the image using Copic markers. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and attached it to the base card. I ran the flag through my Xyron Create a Sticker as I wanted it to lay completely flat against the background. I attached this to the base and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the sentiment and attached it over top of the flag and the base. To complete the card, I added a few bubble embellishments from The Robin’s Nest – Peony using Ranger Glossy Accents.
