How is it the end of the year already? In January I had lots of plans and started off really productive. However by the middle of the year my health began to become a concern and by December I was having surgery. My recovery is going well, although I’m dealing with fatigue and a frustrating inability to concentrate. Still, I’m very grateful for the support of family and friends and so it seemed only fitting to create this cute card for the final Share It Sunday Blog Hop of 2023.
I began this quick and easy card by creating an A2 card base. So, using my Paper Trimmer I cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Thick Basic White Card. Then, with the long side at the top I used the scoring blade to score the card at 4-1/4″. Finally I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
Now that was done I wanted two pieces of Basic White Card. For the front of my card I cut a piece 2-7/8″ x 4-1/8″, before cutting a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece to line the inside. After pulling out a Basic White Medium Envelope I was ready to start stamping.
First, I chose the “your kindness is so appreciated” sentiment from the So Sincere Stamp Set. Using Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the sentiment towards the bottom of the smaller piece of card.
Next I picked out the cute rabbit image from the Fluffiest Friends Stamp Set. Using Tuxedo Black ink again I stamped the rabbit in the space above the sentiment. Then I stamped him in the bottom right-hand corner on the larger piece of card and the front of the envelope. From there all I had to do was colour them in using Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.
For the rabbits’ fur I used light and dark Crumb Cake markers. Next I coloured the cherries on the cupcakes using light Poppy Parade. Then I coloured the cupcake case with light Lemon Lime Twist, before using the dark one to scribble a little ‘ground’ beneath the rabbits.
Now all I had to do was assemble the pieces but first I needed a 3″ x 4-1/4″ layer of Lemon Lime Twist Card. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I mounted the sentiment layer onto the coloured card mat. Then I put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the assembled layers and mounted it in the centre of my card front.
Once the larger white layer was glued inside the card base my project was complete. See I told you it was quick and easy!
