Back on the blog with another stamped card. Because I like to make cards… and I like to share them with you! 🙂
Meet today’s card.
When I saw the new Critter Concert stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I knew I “had” to make a card with it. Cute animals? Check. Cute animals with instruments? Check. Scene potential? Over. The. Top.
All the stamping on the card was done with stamps in the stamp set. I didn’t get the dies so I did things the old school way. Yep. I stamped the critters on cardstock, colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them with my scissors.
You might be wondering how the lines are so dark… because there’s no way “Crusty Ol’ Teri” is the perfect fussy cutter. Here’s a little secret: I cut really, really, really slow. And then, if any white was showing on the edges of the critter, I “touched” it up with a black pen. The pen is a super nice way to hide flaws.
It’s a little hard to tell from the pictures, but I did want the eyes to stand out so I dotted each critter’s eyeballs with a black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Truly, there have been moments lately when I’ve wondered how I ever crafted without Crystal Drops. They are awesome.
One more little detail about the card. You might be wondering about the patterned paper on it. It, too, came from Lawn Fawn. It’s from Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow 6×6 paper pad. Such a good happy pack of paper.
Alright! That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you again soon.
