Hi everyone! I’m here with a new card for a few challenge blogs. I will link and mention these challenges at the end of the post.
If you read my previous post about starting to make cards again, I promised myself that I will not buy anything new until I can follow through cardmaking for at least a month. So for this card, I used stamps from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp that are oldies but goodies.
Here is my card —
I started this card with Neenah Solar White cardstock and stamped the images from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. To color the images, I used Prismacolor pencils and blended the different colors with an odorless mineral spirit and a paper stump. I blended some Surf Blue ink from Simon Says Stamp around the image to give it some depth. I used the Stitched Borders 2 from Pretty Pink Posh to cut the panel diagonally.
For the card base, I used a standard size Neenah Solar White cardstock. I adhered the sequins patterned paper from Doodlebug and Simple Stories from an old SSS Card Kit.
For the sentiment, I die cut the thanks die from a textured gray card stock (I don’t know the exact name) from Neenah. I layered 4 pieces to get some dimension and from the matching stamp set, I stamped a sentiment on a thin strip with Versamark ink and embossed it with the American Crafts Zing white embossing powder.
