I just got home from my friend's beautiful shower for her little boy. I'm so excited to meet him!
I made her this card with the Studio Calico July 2014 card kit (Penny Arcade) when I first got the kit, but I didn't want her to see it before today. I think it's so super cute! Here we go!
As soon as I saw the big and little hedgehogs in the stamp set, I knew I wanted to make this card!
I used the blue cardstock that was included in the kit to make a standard A2 card base. I layered that with some yellow and blue papers from The Paper Studio.
Then I created my stamped embellishments using stamps from the kit. I used slate gray, well red, and something blue inks. The original shades were too vibrant for my card, so I stamped them off on a piece of scratch paper and then stamped them again onto the white cardstock. I used Versafine ink for the outline of the hedgehogs and cut out my images. I put the sentiment together using two different stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and they, too are inked with Versafine ink.
The veneer stars were included in the kit and I adhered them with Glossy Accents. The cloud and the hedgehogs are popped up with foam tape.
And that's it!
I did an awful lot of crafting this week, so I'll be back soon with more cards from this kit.
My kit from Simon Says Stamp is due to arrive Monday! Yay! I can't wait! It will be my first kit from their company and I'm so excited! See you soon!
