Birthday Hedgehog




Hehe, easel cards are FUN! This is the first one I ever made....and I'll definitely be making more now that I know how. HERE'S the tutorial I followed. I made it for Saturday's Penny Black Challenge and used my new Birthday Hedgehog Slapstick stamp that I got at Stamper's Dream. I paired it up with some Report Card DP that I also got at the SD store. The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers, and I added some Orange Stickles to the candle flame.

Here's a close-up so you can see that I stamped and extra pair of feet and hands from the hedgie and popped them up on foam tape. You can click on the picture (any of my pictures for that matter) and it'll get bigger.



The sentiment is from my Penny Black Critter Party clear set. I punched it with my word window punch and popped that up on foam tape, too.

Have an awesome day!

What a beautiful card, love how you've coloured the image and the easel style card looks fab x

Seriously girl, how do you make such perfect bows with the Bow Easy....mine NEVER look like yours! In fact, more time than not, they end up in the trash. Yours is litterally PERFECT! I have watched videos and still don't get it...in fact, I call mine, Bow Not-so Easy, lol!

Love this card, btw...too stinkin' cute!

Love, love, love the soft, pretty color on this cutie, Denise! Your bow is perfection, and I love the easel card. I haven't made one in quite some time, and they really are so cool because they help support your card so it isn't always splaying apart and laying flat on you (just a pet peeve of mine---hee!)
