Tree-mendous Love


I'm a little excited about this card. It looks pretty simple, but I love what happened with the lacy border. I punched the border out with my Martha Stewart border punch and added Frosted Lace stickles to it. When it dried, it warped a bit (which is a good thing....*grin*). It gave it a more realistic look. What fun!! For the top of the card, I just punched slots on both sides of the circles and weaved SU's Gingham ribbon through them.

This sweet giraffe image is from a the set "Treemendous Love" by a new stamp company called Our Craft Lounge. Isn't he/she adorable? I stamped him/her with Smokey Gray (Versafine) onto Neenah Solar White, along with the little heart flowers, and colored them with my copics. I added some Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to the dots on the giraffe and on the sides of the heart flowers. I then cut them out with my Labels I diecut (Spellbinders). The sentiment was stamped onto Baby Pink Medium with the same Smokey Gray ink. Finally, I just added an Adornit gem and popped the image panels up with dimensional tape. The card is a standard A2. That's it.

Supplies: Stamps - Our Craft Lounge Paper - Baby Pink Medium, Crabapple Medium (Prismatics), DCWV Sweet Pack, Neenah Solar White Ink - Smokey Gray (Versafine) Accessories - Copics, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart border punch, Frosted Lace Stickles, Slot Punch, Gingham Ribbon, Adornit gem, dimensional tape

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you had a fabulous week and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend!
Happy Stamping!
