Hello there, here is the card that I made for my mum for Mother's Day this year. I wanted to use the LOTV James the Bear as I know my mum likes these images. I have kept it pretty simple by stamping the image and colouring with Copic Markers (adding a little Glossy Accents to his nose). I have then cut it out using the largest of the Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle dies. This actually only cuts the stitched lines so I then cut around it with my guillotine. I wanted the card a little bigger than usual so I cut a 12x12" piece of card slightly bigger than the panel. I then added a piece of paper from the Doodlebug Hello Spring Paper Pad on top. The sentiment is from a new Clearly Besotted stamp set which will be released on the 5th April (real sneaky peek there for you!).
Because the card will not fit in a standard sized envelope I decided to use of my SU kraft bags and decorated it. I first took one of the CBS Lovely Labels Dies and cut this from white CS, I then added the SSS Mum die on top. The butterfly has been made by stamping the CBS Elegant Butterflies image on to vellum and embossing with Iridescent Sparkle EP. I have then cut it out with the coordinating die - so pretty IRL!
