Hi everyone, it’s Karen here and I've got an encouragement card for you today. I've used the Happy Fall stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs for this one and it has a very summery feel to it.
The images are all from the Happy Fall stamp set, and I've coloured them with Copic markers before fussy cutting them out.
I used the "So Many Squares Panel" die from Your Next Stamp for the overlay. It actually cuts a grid of twelve squares, but I cut a few of them out with scissors to allow my pictures and sentiment to fit.
I ink blended the background using my now favourite summer colour combination of Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn and Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud ink in Clear Day. I masked off the outside area of the card before ink blending.
I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment so it would fit in one of the openings of the overlay diecut. Then I attached the kite with the string to the back of the overlay before gluing it into place on the card front. Finally, I popped the little squirrels up on double sided foam tape before attaching them in place. I love how happy those squirrels are!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
