CARD COMMISSION AND CARD WINNER
Hello blog friends....
I was given short notice when asked to make a card for a little boy's birthday, (I really don't mind when this happens, and this lady is a good customer of mine and has also become a good friend)
I had made a start in sorting my stamp collection, to a more 'user friendly system', and came across this set (make unknown), shown on the card, the day before!
I used a 7" square white card base and scored the front at 3.5" to fold back
The figures were stamped then the numbers in various colours, using Distress Oxide Inks
I then coloured the images using watercolour pencils (Derwent Pencils and Crafter's Companion) and once completed went over them with paper stumps to blend them
I used Tonic's square die set (used the smallest die in the set) to die cut 3 squares, then cut them in half, diagonally, to make a flag for the bunting
The same coloured distress inks were used to colour each flag and I stamped the letters using an onyx black ink pad. I added a thin line of glue to the top of the card and added blue and white jute so that the bunting looked as if it was attached to it. Very small pieces of double sided mounting foam were added to the backs of the flags and adhered slightly below the jute. The sentiment above the bunting fitted perfectly in the space above
I downloaded the verse, the cute bear was also included with it. I printed it onto blue cardstock and die cut it using one of the oval dies from Creative Expressions
Now for the card winner:
