I needed to send a thank you card to my Uncle Bobby in Scotland, and thought this little combo would do just nicely…
Don’t ya just love this little hedgehog? He is from the very useful Fun and Fast Notes – I chose not to use the sentiment section and let the little fella speak for himself…
I’ve coloured him in with my Stampin’ markers (Chocolate Chip and More Mustard), and stamped him on Whisper White. The DSP is Basic Grey Patterns from the Hostess Level 1 Paper Pack.
My main card is Basic Grey and the Baja Breeze patterned paper is Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP (sadly now unavailable :(.
I have used my new favourite Vintage Labels FREE SAB (yes free!) to stamp the lovely Scallop Circle Frame in Baja Breeze, and the sentiment is from the Hostess Level 1 set Best Yet. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip to match my wee hedgehog.
I really liked this effect of a slightly larger mat than normal – and the rounded corners just finished it off. I’ve tied my bow with Grosgrain 5/8’s ribbon in Whisper White. Sweet as!
Oh and think twice before you throw away the offcut strip once you have punched with the Scallop Edge Punch – I’ve added it at the bottom of my card for some extra interest.
Stay tuned – I will be back soon with a card using my sale-a-bration Good Neighbours stamp set – just putting the finishing touches on now!
