Hello my crafty friends! I am back today with another card for the 2020 Card Design Superstar! This is my entry for the Clean & Simple category. I don’t always make clean and simple cards but I really LOVE how this one turned out.
To begin, I stamped the Gnome on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the image in with my alcohol markers. Since I didn’t have the coordinating die, I fussy-cut the image using my precision snips.
Next, I die-cut a circle using the Circle Shaker Window & Frame die-namics on some masking paper and use the negative to mask off the space. I positioned the Rolling Clouds Stencil and used my mini ink-blending tool to create the clouds for added texture. This made my focal image to stand out.
I die-cut the “congratulations” using the Congratulations Circle Frame die-namics three times and adhered with liquid glue for added dimension. I adhered this piece onto an A2-size card base.
I finished my design by foam-mounting the gnome onto the card. Here’s another look:
I hope you like my card today. Please wish me luck that I get picked this year! The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
