I made this card with my daughter in mind, she left 8 days ago for United States Coast Guard boot camp, away from her husband, children and all the rest of the family for almost 8 weeks. I knew the first time I saw this set I was going to use this sentiment and this card will be off in the mail to her by the time this post goes live.
- To make this card I used Recollections 110 lb cardstock cut to 4.25" x 11", scored at the 5.5" line and folded over to make a US sized a2 card.
- I then used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image and sentiment using my Tonic Stamp Press.
- I used my Scan n Cut to cut a mask of the image and then adhered the mask to the image so I could use my Summer Sky Fireworks spray from Imagine Crafts to add the background.
- After the background was dry I used my Memento Dual Markers to color the image. The colors used were: Rich Cocoa for the pants, Ladybug for the shirt and Dandelion for her hair with Cantaloupe added in for a few highlights.
I really hope you have enjoyed my project today, I will now write my next post and hope to be back with that soon. Please be sure to check out Mama Makes on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
