Card A Day Blog: Thinking of you

I get to start off this weeks theme " Thinking of you" at the Card A Day Blog. I saw this cute little digital stamp over at Digistamp Boutique, and thought he would be perfect for my card.

Here is how I made my card.

  • 5.5 x 8.5" piece of white card stock for my card base.
  • 5.25 x 4" piece of patterned paper.
  • 3.5 x 3.75" piece of solid purple card stock.
  • 3.25 x 2.75 piece of white card stock for digi stamp.
  • Digi stamp from, Digistamp Boutique.
  • Copic markers, RV13, Y08, BV08, BV13, G14, C2.
  • Pink polka dot ribbon.
  • Light purple Prima Flower.
  • Glossy Accents.
  • Viva Decor, purple.
  • Fiskars, Leave It To Weaver, border punch.
To make my card, I first brought my digistamp into one of the scrapbooking programs that I have, so I could size it, and type in my sentiment. I printed my image on white card stock, and cut it to the size I wanted. I colored the flowers, leaves, grass, and edges of the fur on the puppy. I then punched the bottom edge of my purple card stock with my border punch, then attached my image above the punched border. I then wove my ribbon into the punched slots, and taped the ends to the back of the mat. I then attached that piece to my background paper. I dotted the inside of the flowers on the image with a dab of Glossy Accents. I thought it needed a little something more, so I added a Prima flower to the corner of the mat, and added a dot of purple Viva Decor in the middle.

I thought this card turned out so cute, I'm probably going to make more, and send them to Operation Write Home, an organisation that I try to be involved with as much as I can.

If you'd like to let me know what you think about my creation, please leave me a comment, I would really love to hear what you think. Be sure to enter our monthly challenge at the Card A Day Blog Weekly Challenge. There will be a wonderful prize offered to the lucky winner.
