Bunch of Thanks | ft. Lawn Fawn "Critters in the Jungle"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
If you have been following me for any time at all, you'll know that I love to do a single layer card. For me it is simply magic to pull away the masks and watch a piece come together. That being said, I can do other stuff. I don't typically buy the coordinating dies when it comes to stamp sets, so because I do have the matching die set, I figured I should probably use it.
To begin, I stamped all of the images from Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the Jungle" stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I coloured them all in using Copic markers and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.
For the background panel, I cut down a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock, and dry embossed an oval using my largest oval die. While the die was still in place, I used Shabby Shutters Distress ink to create a light wash of colour over the background. I used a 1/2" corner rounder to round all the edges.
I then used Tombow Mono Multi glue to adhere all my little pieces into place. For the greeting I prepped a piece of black cardstock with my powder tool and stamped the "Thanks a Bunch" sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with detail white powder.
I cut fishtail banner ends and adhered it down. I then used the same corner rounder to round out the ends of an A2 sized card base and adhered the panel down.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't all ready, please follow me over on the right side bar so you don't miss any future posts.
