Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. I worked on my taxes this weekend and they are ready to submit. I like to sit on them for a couple days to make sure I haven’t missed anything. Tonight I’m going to hit the “submit” button. Woohoo and shew!!!
Today’s post is the third design made in my March Card Class. This little lamb is from the Easter Lamb single stamp and just the cutest thing. It does come with a “Happy Easter” sentiment BUT can also be made into a baby card or in this case “you’re sweet” little lamb. [smile]
CARD BASE: I wanted to go with a gender neutral color palette (Soft Sky / Old Olive / Crumb Cake). The base is Soft Sky topped with a Softly Falling embossed Soft Sky layer.
BANNERS: The longest banner is Old Olive that I applied the Faux Suede Technique to to give a subtle bit of texture. Then top with a smaller length of Crumb Cake 1-1/4″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. Both banner ends are trimmed into V’s. [TIP: The Old Olive banner is only adhered under the circle area so it give the feel of ribbon.]
LAMB: Stamp the Easter Lamb with Memento Tuxedo Black ink close to the edge of Whisper White. Die cut the Lamb with a 2-1/4″ circle. [TIP: I lightly colored the ears and cheeks with Pink Pirouette ink and the legs with Sahara Sand ink to add just a hint of color to the lamb.] Then layer onto a slightly larger Old Olive circle (2-3/8″), trim away the exposed bottom portion of the circle. Tape a length of 3/8″ Pool Party Glitter Ribbon to the flat part of the circle. Trim to fit if necessary. Adhere these layers to a 2-3/4″ Vellum circle then pop with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The glitter ribbon add just a hint of sparkle…..LOVE IT!
SENTIMENT: Stamp “you’re sweet” from the All Boxed Up stamp set onto Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Punch with the Word Window punch. Then in Old Olive punch again with the Word Window punch. Split the Old Olive piece in half and adhere to either end of the Whisper White. Finally pop with Stampin’ Dimensional halves.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this cute and cuddly little lamb. It’s great when you can turn an item into multiple uses and great for the pocketbook! Have a great Monday!
