I would like to welcome my newest follower Kim Heggins from Cupcakes, Cards and Kim, please visit her blog as she is very talented and very inspiring! Thank you so much Kim for joining me!
For my card today I chose these kitties and digital sentiment, they are from Skogstokiga designs, Petra Maria is a Swedish designer, please visit her blog as she is designing some really cute images! and I was one of the lucky winners of her blog candy in which I won 6 images and among them these cute kitties in a tin!
So for the design of the card I was inspired by one of my favorite cardmakers Tara Sell from Curl E. Cue’s blog. She makes some amazing cards and has some great video tutorials as well, and I really got inspired by this card that she made! Please visit her if you don’t know her already! she is a great inspiration! and this card is a perfect example on how much I loved her cards!
I printed my image and my sentiment on Kraft paper ( If you haven’t noticed already, I love kraft paper! lol, and this suited me very well since Tara used it as well! ) and created a top-folding card.
I trimmed the bottom part underneath my image with my puncher to create this lovely border and colored my image with my pencils,
I adhered my pattern paper on the inside of my card base and I used some Neenah Solar white paper and punched it as well to make this nice border which is slightly longer than the front of my cardbase.
So as you can see when you close you card you have these layers and when it is open you have a enough space to write your message.
I used my white signo gel pen to add some finishing touches on my card.
I had so much fun making it and I hope you like it!
