You’re stinkin’ cute!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday – hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! It has been awesome having a few free days in my studio – with no design team projects required – with rockin’ mojo! I was absolutely loving it! I’ve popped in bright and early this morning to share a card for the Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge! The themes available to choose from were Christmas, Male Birthday, Father’s Day and Anything Goes. I chose Anything Goes and created a bi-level card featuring an adorable skunk!

I stamped the skunk in black and colored it with Nuvo alcohol markers. I cut it with the coordinating die and layered it onto three additional skunk die cuts for some dimension. I also stamped and colored three hearts which I cut with the coordinating die. I cut a bi-level card base (meaning the front flap is cut shorter than the back flap) from white card stock using a pointed scalloped border die. I stamped the sentiment on the longest edge and adhered the skunk toward the left side, along with some heart die cuts. I adhered some black and white gingham paper to the inside of the card base so it can be seen when the card is closed.

I created a stitched square die cut to use as the inside panel which I embellished with a strip of red cardstock to compliment the red hearts on the front, then stamped the sentiment in black ink.

And one more peek… so stinkin’ cute I can’t even stand it!
