Happy Tuesday Darlings! It’s guest design Jo here from @havefaithincards back with my second Heffy Doodle card for May, and let me tell you…It is Ad-Roar-Able! To find out how I made this card, read on, and make sure to grab yourself this cute stamp set in the retiring section before it’s gone: ‘Ad-Roar-Able Lions‘ stamp set.
- Die cut two square layers, one Pearlised Copper cardstock layer and one smaller white cardstock layer. For the white cardstock, I used Heffy Doodle’s ‘8.5″ x 11″ White Cardstock‘.
- Ink blend Distress Oxide ‘Fossilized Amber’ over the white cardstock, and once dry, position Heffy Doodle’s ‘Ripple Waves’ stencil on top and ink blend ‘Carved Pumpkin’ over the pattern. Next, take a slow drying embossing ink and go over the pattern again. The sprinkle some translucent orange glitter embossing powder over the set ink and set into place with a heat tool.
3. To create the shaker element, take a small scalloped rectangle die and die cut the shape in the centre of the stencilled layer. At the back, apply some double side tape and adhere clear acetate, then apply foam tape around the edge of the acetate to create a barrier for your shaker elements. I chose a mixture of different stars. Next, taking that same Pearlised Copper cardstock, I cut a rectangle to cover the foam tape and secure my shaker elements in place.
4. For the cute critters and sentiment, I used the ‘Ad-Roar-Able Lions‘ stamp set, stamped some images onto Heffy Doodle’s ‘Alcohol Marker Friendly Cardstock‘, and coloured them in using Ohuhu brush markers. For the sentiment, I took some the Pearlised Copper cardstock, embossing ink, yellow embossing powder, and a heat tool to pull it together.
5. To finish the card, I adhered all the elements onto using a mixture of double sided tape and foam tape to create dimension. Finally, I added some additional star on top to pull the whole theme together.
