Inspired by…time to write

New card to enter into the current Inspired by challenge. I made the deadline this time!

I decided to use the colour scheme, frame, envelope and clothesline for my card.

Images

  • Stamped Penny Black Critter Love image onto Hammermill cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink (copic friendly ink and cardstock).
  • Colour with Copics – W0, W1, W3, N0, N2, R20, R22, E50, E53, BG10, BG11, BG37, R14, R27, R59.
  • Fussy cut by hand.

Tip: When fussy cutting image by hand you can be left with the white core of the cardstock showing around the edge. Run a black marker around the outside edge of the image to hide the white. This can hide some not so perfect cutting as well.

Background

  • Die cut Kaisercraft frame out of Colourfield Snow White 250g cardstock (any brand will do).
  • Adhere the outside and inside frame to a piece of coloured paper that will show through the frame. I only place double sided tape on the solid piece of the inside frame so the cut out parts stick up a little bit from the background (see closeup photo below).

Other items

  • Diecut the baby clothes, My Favorite Things Bundle of clothes, out of Snow White cardstock and blend Distress Oxide Tea Dye over outside portions of die cuts.
  • Diecut heart, hangers and pegs pieces out of white cardstock and colour with matching copics.
  • Adhere the clothes to the hangers with liquid glue and the heart to the dress.

Finishing

  • Tie twine for line to red brads and apply to card front.
  • Position the mice and clothes to card front with dimensional foam.
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment inside the card. I used My Favorite Things Welcome Baby sentiment “AWESOME people make AWESOME babies”.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
