I am excited to be a guest designer for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps this month. Today’s challenge is to create a card for Mom. I decided to use an image from Cheryl Alger’s Sugar and Spice set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Dress, bow, balloon, grass: YG00, YG01, YG03, YG17    Socks: N0, N3   Shoes: N3, N5, N7, N9    Skin: E000, E01, E11    Hair: Y26, E33, E35, E37   Background: B0000, B000). The image was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Pink Paislee She Art patterned paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded, stitched and May Arts ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip. The paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die.

The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensional adhesive. Fancy That! Border Bling was added to the upper left hand side of the card. A sentiment from Kimmie’s Everyday Sentiments was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock,  cut and embossed with a tag die from Home Sweet Home . The embossed part was colored with Copic Marker B0000. It was tied to the bow with a button and embroidery thread to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to participate in the challenge.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs and smiles
