Welcome back crafters!
Today’s project is a fun kids card, featuring a copic colored fox image (adorable!), and a chunky whimsical die-cut sentiment on layers of bright die-cut orange papers.
So this is one of those stamped images that make you go “Awwwwww”. It’s one of my older stamps but never loses its cute factor! I thought this card would work perfectly for a child who’s away at sleep-away camp this summer…
I first stamped my fox onto white cardstock and colored it with copic markers. Copics are alcohol markers that blend together without running. They are great for shading and coloring images to create visual dimension and shadows.
I’m a big fan of die-cutting, especially with dies that create a faux stitched border like these. Using my Big Shot, I die-cut a stitched oval around my fox image, and adhered it onto my die-cut orange and patterned papers. The faux stitched borders create a coordinated, finished look which I love.
I then die-cut my “hello” sentiment from three separate scraps of white cardstock. This created three exact cuts which I then adhered together to create a thick, chipboard-like embellishment for dimension. The self-stick gems were an added touch for visual balance and youthful sparkle. (:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time, stay creative!
