Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Boating Gnome from the new June release. This stamp comes with 2 other sentiments, “It’s a boat time” and “You float my boat”. There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and rowing a boat along a shore seeing the wildlife when you go camping. It’s so peaceful and serene.
To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and copy paper using my HP Printer. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut red, blue cardstock and the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass with a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie. I had used my Brother Scan and Cut to create the mask to put over the image while I created the clouds.
To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes cardstock (5.5″ x 4.25″) for the base. I attached the coloured image to the blue layer using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to backs of the red and blue rectangles and attached directly to the base.
