Meerly a Birthday #1
Although the inside of my cards are usually blank, there are images that fit nicely inside. Here is the card front:
The Gang's All Meer
Sahara Sand A-2
Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
Irresistibly Yours DSP 5-1/4 x 4
Woven Threads DSP 3-1/8 x 2-1/8 Oval
Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4
Archival Basic Black
Basic Rhinestone Jewels
Heirloom Frames Dies
Inside of Meerly a Birthday #1
I started by watercoloring the Irresistibly Yours DSP panel using Groovy Guava ink. The DSP has an embossed resist pattern of leaves. So, applying color is quite easy. Once the panel dried, I cleaned it up with a paper towel. I adhered it to the Basic Black panel and set it aside.
Next, I stamped the three meerkats for the front of the card. I stamped them on scraps of Whisper White cardstock. I colored them using the water color pencils. I then went over them with a blender pen which really brings out the color: the solution in the blender pen is just the right amount of liquid needed. Then, I fussy cut them and attached them with dimensionals.
The oval with the sentiment is a leftover piece of Woven Threads DSP. It was the center of the Heirloom Frames Oval Die Cut. I never throw anything away, and I think it fit nicely here. I added rhinestones to the top and bottom for a bit of balance.
This panel was then adhered to the Sahara Sand card base.
The Whisper White panel for the inside was stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. I used a blender pen on the image and then adhered it to the inside of the card.
These little guys are so cute, you can't help but smile. The fussy cutting can take a bit of time to get done, but I find it quite relaxing.
