I hope you had a lovely Christmas Day yesterday
On Christmas Eve I managed a quick bit of crafting and made this cute birthday card featuring the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set. It will be available as a gift, for a qualifying order, during Sale-a-bration (SAB) which begins on 5th January 2021 through to 28th February 2021. If you’re new to SAB I’ll explain more after Christmas. I chose Cherry Cobbler as my colour scheme and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the Christmas Classic 6″ x 6″ pack that’s available as part of the Curvy Celebration Bundle. Most of the designs in this pack – like the design I have used – are not necessarily Christmas designs and will be easy to use through the year.
I stamped the donkey in Memento Ink and coloured him using Stampin’ Blends as follows: body – light and Dark Crumb Cake; rose – Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Cherry Cobbler; ground – Dark Soft Suede; shading around image – Light Pool Party. I die cut it using the Stitched Rectangle dies regular no. 4 four. Next I layered it on a piece of Cherry Cobbler that measured 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ which is 1/4″ bigger on both sides of the image. The DSP layer is 1/4″ smaller on both sides of the regular middle layer. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image and also to add the two sentiments. Using Dimensionals I adhered the image to the front of my card but tilted it to a jaunty angle!
Inside the card I added a regular sized Whisper White top layer and a Cherry Cobbler middle layer but didn’t get round to decorating inside. As I said on Thursday, it’s unlikely that there will be a video this Sunday. I look forward to being back with you early next week. Take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
