Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Fall Oak Gnome from the July release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of “Oak-ey Dokey” and “Hope You are Oak-ky”. I love the sentiment that I chose for this card because you could use it for so many different occasions. It could be used as a “Get Well” card, an “inspirational card” for someone about to write a big exam or a “Just Because” card.
To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I inked around the brown layer with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs and around the patterned paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and attached directly to the brown layer. The largest die cut which was cut from Your Next Stamp – Fabulous Fall patterned paper was applied directly to the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the brown rectangle and adhered directly to the patterened paper. To complete my card, I added a little squirrel button from Dress It Up – Backyard Buddies using double-sided tape and glue.
