Hello! Samantha here. Welcome to my first blog post write-up for Elizabeth Craft Designs for 2019! Today I’m sharing a card I made using Krista’s Garden Party Clear Stamp set and Co-ordinating Die. I was drawn to this set because of the cat –– I’m more of a dog person but I have many friends and their young daughters who love their feline pets and thought it was a much needed theme to add to my card stash.
Step 1: On Copic-friendly cardstock, stamp the lanterns 5x on the right side of your card front.
Step 2: Stamp an additional 3x lanterns, the cat image and the sentiments on Copic-friendly cardstock and die cut them out.
Step 3: Colour the die cut images with Copic markers (or your preferred choice of colouring medium).
COPIC MARKERS USED: G14/G16/YR12/YR14/YR16/R12/R14/R17
Step 4: Assemble card – Adhere the 3x die cut lanterns on top of the first three stamped lanterns on your card front with foam tape. Colour in the last two lanterns with Copic markers. Adhere the cat and the sentiment with foam tape.
Step 5: Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.
I love the bright colours and the feminine feel this card has. It’s the perfect card to give to a cat loving girl on their birthday. I loved it so much I also decided to create a similar layout with the additional images in this stamp set.
This card uses the same colour scheme and a similar layout –– both images are really perfect to create a beautiful card for a young girl on her special day. Give the card instructions a go –– I used Copics as my preferred colouring medium but kept the colouring and shading very simple. You could use any colouring tool!
