Hello friends. Come on in. Kick back and sit a spell. Hope y'all are doin' good today. I have something for y'all to see.
Cute, right? I pulled out one of the first stamps I ever bought for this card. I have been using alot of digis and thought I would go "old school" for this one. This is a Hot Off the Press stamp from Paper Wishes. I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Very Vanilla card stock from SU. I colored him with my colored pencils and OMS. The little blocks in the corners come in the same stamp set along with the Beary Cute sentiment.
To put this card together, I started with a white card base from Gina K. It's a standard A2 sized card. I cut a piece of Old Olive from SU to 4"x5.25" and ran it through the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder. The next layer is the light green plaid from American Crafts which is cut at 4.75"x3.5". I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the image with Spellbinders Nestabilities in Classic Circle Large and Petite Scalloped Circle Large. While still in the die, I used DI Peeled Paint ink to sponge around the perimeter of the image. I matted the image on the scalloped circle. Before adhering the image to the card, I wrapped a piece of cream colored ribbon from Offray around the plaid paper and tied a knot on the right hand side. I then used pop dots to adhere the image. I stamped the welcome greeting in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Very Vanilla card stock, trimmed it down and inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo. I centered the greeting towards the bottom. I stamped five little block images, colored them with my colored pencils and fussy cut them out. They were run through my Xyron and adhered to each corner. The fifth one is on the inside.
I am so glad you decided to come on in and sit a spell. It's time for me to go, but I will be back to visit with you soon. God bless y'all.
