Kind Thoughts Card

Christmas has now passed and the New Year is just around the corner so I decided a change was as good as a rest. One of my friends has not been too good over the break and I wanted to do a card to cheer her up.

I used a stamp called 'Natures Little Helper' from The Artistic Stamper which I won from the very kind Jennie. I used acetate, glitter and souffle pens to colour in the image (attributed to Mabel Lucie Attwell).

I took a mottled pale blue cardstock and trimmed/scored to make a 4 x 4 inch square card as the base.

I took a piece of acetate and stamped the image with black Stazon. I then used dries clear art glue and applied a number of colours of ultrafine glitters on the reverse of the acetate, allowing them to dry between colours. The body, ear and paint tin were coloured with Sakura Souffle pens and allowed to dry. I then trimmed out the image to leave around a 1/4 inch border.

Next I took a piece of K&Co printed cardstock trimmed as shown and cut an aperture top right with a large square punch. This was rubbed over with broken china Distress ink applied with cut'n'dry foam. This was then matted over some dark plum coloured card and the same aperture cut again with the punch.

The matt was applied centrally with DS tape, the acetate applied over the aperture with glue applied behind the glitter and the card finished off with a 'Thinking of you' sentiment mounted on foam tape and matted onto the same dark plum card.

Hope she likes it !
