Inspire

Hi friends! Happy Saturday to you! I’m beyond thrilled to share that I’m guest designing for The Hedgehog Hollow this month! Woo-hoo… a dream come true for this old gal! I was provided the March Subscription Box and created a couple projects to share this month. This first one is a friendship card featuring a fun and unique design of three vertical panels seemingly cut through the stamped image and popped up on foam. If you’re interested in seeing my tutorial, check out my guest blogger post on the The Hedgehog Hollow blog!

This was a fun design and really fairly simple. I created two background pieces by cutting random strips of patterned paper in shades of green, teal, aqua and blue. I stamped the large sentiment (from the Inspire Me stamp set) in the same place on both background pieces using a stamp positioner. I used one of the background pieces as my base and then layered three strips from the other background piece that I popped up on foam for some awesome interest. All elements are layered on black cardstock which is a great contrast to the patterned paper. I completed the front with several randomly-placed black gemstones.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment (from the Craft Together stamp set) in black ink.

One more look… I am so smitten with these stamp sets and love how this card turned out!
