Happy Thanksgiving my friends! Art Impressions has two new sets out and my card features the new Baby Boy Set. There is also a new Baby Girl Set that is just as precious.
This card was super easy to create. I stamped the boy in Copic safe ink onto some Neenah 80# cardstock. I also stamped him onto some blue gingham paper. I colored the neck and arm bands of the top with a white gel pen. I fussy cut out the bits I wanted to use for my paper piecing. Be sure to use a Memento Tuxedo Black pen to go around the edges of your cutting for a more finished look. I colored the boy with my Copics that are listed below. After I finished the coloring, I adhered the gingham pieces with liquid glue. I added some stitching details and highlights with a white gel pen. Next I die cut the panel with a Rectangle Double Stitched die.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Onyx Black ink using my MISTI. I added a gingham border and some red floss tied into a bow. A tip to make it easier to get the floss on is to put some tape runner on the back of the panel so you can stick the floss down as you wrap it. So much easier! I added some foam tape to the back and adhered it to a layer that I colored the edges of with my darkest blue Copic to coordinate it better. This is adhered to a top-folding A2 card base.
I hope you know that I am so very thankful for you all, and especially for those that give my blog posts a look on a regular basis. I hope you have a wonderful day today, filled with lots of love and happiness!
