Just for You



Okay, this was going to be a tag but somehow ended up turning into a 4.25" square card....funny how we end up going in totally different directions sometimes, huh? The hedgie and gift is one big stamp (called Kisses) by Penny Black. I stamped it once on vintage cream CS and colored the hedgie; stamped it again on the Togetherness DP, cut out the gift and ribbon, and glued that over the base; and then stamped it a third time, colored the ribbon, cut out the ribbon and tag, and popped it up on foam tape over the DP. For embellishing, I kept it REAL simple...just some sewing and piercing.

Have a great Monday! I can't even believe it's November already...

Denise, this is an adorable card. I like how you kept it simple. Thank you for listing the copic markers that you used. This is so helpful for us beginners who either are just buying copics or who need to know what colors to color the hedgehog. Thank you for sharing.

Fabulous card Denise! A great idea decoupaging the image up for that extra dimension and I love the simplicity of finishing off with the stitching but how amazing it makes the card look.
