Hi there, Designer Shona here today to share with you a card I made using one of the latest stamp Sets 817: Milton the Friendly Giraffe.
I started with the background. I ran a piece of Kraft cardstock through my embossing machine with the Cuttlebug Animal Print embossing folder. Once it was embossed I took the Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad and ran that directly over the raised pattern.
So on to Milton (our Friendly Giraffe!). I took a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and attached it to a piece of white cardstock. After removing the protective backing, I covered the sticky surface with Buff Flocking. Milton was then stamped directly on top of the flocking with the Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I "colored" Milton using Copics (YR02, C7, YR00, E35). When coloring on top of the flocking, you gently dab the image with the side of the marker instead of using the point of the marker. Once he was colored in, he was taped down to the embossed background.
I wrapped a piece of sheer gold ribbon around the right side of the background and added a strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape down the center of the ribbon and once the protective backing was removed I applied Golden Wheat Velvet Glitter.
The sentiment was stamped on Kraft cardstock with Versamark and was heat embossed with Teddy Brown. This was die cut using the Spellbinders Framed Tags One. I sponged some Memento Dandelion Yellow ink before removing the die. This was then attached to the ribbon strip with a brass Brad. The card front was then layered to a Kraft card base.
That finishes my card for today. Hope you've enjoyed your visit today.
