Hello Sunny Studio friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with a baby card to share. I am using the following products by Sunny Studio Stamps:
I used Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock for all of the cardstock elements and black dye ink for the stamping.
To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I stamped and colored the cute elephant design. I used the following Copic Markers to color it: RV00, RV02, YR31, YR30, B000, B00 and BV000. I used my white gel pen to add dots and swirls over the colored image to make it a bit more textural looking. It softens the look a bit.
Next, I die cut the Bursting Hearts die design from white cardstock. I ink blended Spun Sugar and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Inks, starting in the center and moving out a bit, leaving white around the edges. This panel will be used as the background for the elephant image.
For the card base, I cut the following pieces: 5″ wide X 11″ long piece and a 5″ wide X 7″ long piece. I scored the longer piece at 4″ (from the top edge) to create the inside 5″ X 7″ panel. The other A7 panel will be used to complete the front panel. I cut a 4-1/4″ wide X 3″ long rectangle from both pieces as shown above. It’s important that these panel openings line up perfectly so that they can “sandwich” the bursting hearts die cut panel in the middle of them.
I adhered the layers together with glue, carefully lining up the openings and “sandwiching” the die cut piece in the middle. This offers a nice finished edge on both sides. I used one of the Icing Border Dies cut from pink cardstock to cover the 4″ edge from the front piece. I stamped two sentiments from the Inside Greetings: Congratulations stamps on the front panel. I added white hearts to the outside panel in a diagonal fashion for a little more subtle sweetness.
Inside, I stamped a third sentiment from the Inside Greetings: Congratulations stamp set and added more white hearts down the side of the interior panel. Note: I made sure to stamp the phrase below the rectangular opening so that it would not show through from the front. This card is done! You can shop all these cute products at Sunny Studio Stamps.
