I created a simple card for the make-n-take for my All-Day Crop this month.
I used Glacier Cardstock as my base and created my own piece of patterned paper with the candy image stamped in Cranberry ink and used the Chevron Border Punch along the bottom of that piece of paper.
So I really wanted to use the postcard stamp with the polar bear. (Side note, I just love to watch polar bears at the zoo, if I could own one I would.) Now to really make the polar bear and this stamp stand out I stamped it 4 times. That’s right, 4 times each in a different color, Whisper, Glacier, Black, Cranberry.
Since this image coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge I stamped it in Whisper ink on my Cricut cut so that I wouldn’t have to cut it out. From the Glacier stamp cut out the large rectangle. From the Black stamped image cut out just the polar bear being sure not to leave a black border around the image. Then from the Cranberry image just cut out the scarf. Then paper piece the images together. So easy and a great look.
Now it is time to hop over to Jacquelin Green’s Blog to see what she has created!
