So, today's theme is the COLOR PURPLE. I knew I had to do this day, because purple is one of my most favorite colors. You can do anything with purple. Today's card features a new stamp called Flip Top Frankie which is being released today. He's too cute and has a very confused look upon his face. I think he might be in sugar shock..
I used a Mojo Monday sketch for this cute little guy. I think he turned out cute in purple.
To make this card:
1. Stamp image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the coloring medium of your choice, color Frankie. I used colored pencils and OMS. Fussy cut out Frankie
2. Using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles Large, cut out two circles that are next to each other in your package. I used orange cardstock for the smaller one, which I embossed. I used a sheet of DP from my stash for the larger circle. It is a mottled purple.
3. Cut a piece of lime green card stock into a 3x3 square. Cut a piece of purple card stock into a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" rectangle. Cut a piece of orange cardstock to 1/2" x 2 1/2" and notch one end.
4. Cut your background paper to 4" x 5 1/4". Ink the edges. I used DI Vintage Photo. The card base is orange as is a standard A2 size card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4")
5. Using some Halloween or coordinating ribbon, wrap it around the DP and tie a small bow to the right side of the card.
6. Attach your back ground paper to the card base. Lay the purple card stock at and angle and attach. The lime green piece is turned sideways and centered on the DP.
7. Apply your greeting to the notched strip of orange. I hand wrote my sentiment, but you can add whatever sentiment you like.
8. Put your circles together with ATG and using pop dots, attach Frankie to the center. Lay your focal image on the card towards the left side and place the sentiment strip under it until you have it where you want it. Remove the focal image and attach the sentiment. Using pop dots, attach Frankie.
And there you have it. Flip Top Frankie is complete. I hope you enjoyed stopping by and checking out my creation for today. Be sure to stop back in tomorrow for Day 4. Thanks so much.
