How has your week been going? Mine has been extra busy but I did have time to make a card for the Crafter's Companion April Flower Challenge. I used the new Party Paws Stamp Set - Bamboo. I figured since he was holding a big ole flower he was the perfect choice!! lol
I stamped it him out on Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I'm totally into making Easel cards and actually felt like I was making them too often. But I decided that an easel card just worked for this project.
I found some pretty floral paper in my stash and used it on the base of my card. I stamped out two sentiments and colored them with a Spectrum Noir marker to color match them to the colored image. I punched out one sentiment to use as the center of a flower embellishment and the other one I trimmed into a banner shape and adhered it to the inside of the card with double sided adhesive squares. This raised it up a bit and gave the card a stopper to hold it while it is open.
I finished up by making a little banner out of scrap pieces of my paper and a bit of red bakers twine.
I like it! I hope you do too. And I hope you get a chance to join in on the flower challenge this month too. You could be the big winner of the $30 gift card to the Crafer's Companion online store!! What are you waiting for?
