Hi everyone. The challenge over at Cuddly Buddly this week is to add a BIG number or letter to your card. You can find details here: http://blog.cuddlybuddly.com/
Here is my creation =) This is my first attempt at an easel card and I'm rather proud of the results. It was Denise over at http://densinkyfingers.blogspot.com/ who inspired me to attempt an easel card. So thank you Denise :-) I enjoyed it so much that I will be making a lot more easel cards I think.
Right, so the patterned paper I used is from First Edition PAper 'Animal Antics' Premium Paper Pad (I seem to be using this a lot lately!)
All the plain colour card is from my stash.
Stamp is from Penny Black 'Wonderful Day' set. I adore hedgehogs and this is my most recent purchase - and a favourite one already. I coloured the images using ProMarkers, and used FlowerSoft in Chestnut for the hoggies 'spikes'.
I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large' for the circle around the stamp, combined with the Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Petite Scalloped Circles Large' die.
I die cut another scalloped circle using the Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large' die and then embossed it using a Craft Concepts embossing folder called 'Budding Vine'.
Large chipboard letter, paper flowers, brads, leaves and seam binding from my stash. I coloured the seam binding using a ProMarker.
The tag was die cut with a Sizzix Alterations 'Tiny Tabs & Tags die'.
I made this for a young lady that I work with - she recently turned 20 and has just passed her drivers licence, and bought herself a car. She's really proud of her achievements and I'm pleased to say that the card was a hit.
Sorry I've been a bit quieter the last few weeks. Lots going on but I will do my utmost to start posting more regularly again. As always, I am really grateful that you take the time to stop by and leave comments. Enjoy your week!
