Make a Humorous Card!

I’ve had this digital stamp for years and have used it a few times.  It is called “Snow Fun” and is by Dr. Digi.  Snow Fun

snow fun (1)I love digital stamps because you can make them any size you want,  you can put backgrounds behind them, they print perfectly the first time, you can buy them pre-colored, and you don’t have to clean or store them!

The Steps:

Step 1:  Size, print and color with the medium of your choice.  I colored mine with Copic Markers.

Step 2:  I used the 4th to the largest die to cut the colored image from this set by Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1116 – Stitched Circles

Garden Notes -  Frame It/ Stitched Circles

Step 3:  Use the 3rd to the largest die in the same set to cut a slightly larger circle for a mat for step 2.  Adhere the “image circle” to the blue circle.

Step 4:  Cut two each of the largest and smallest dies, out of wood look cardstock from: 1254 – Entwined Circles Glue the two of each together ending up with one of each but  thicker, which gives it more dimension.  Cut the little snowflake out 8 times.  Note:  The dies in this set will cut through two layers of cardstock at once.  You can always run it through your die cutting machine twice to make sure, as they are intricate.

Step 5:  Create the sentiment in word, “Just stopped by to say “Hay” and print on white cardstock.  Cut out with the 3rd die to the smallest in the same set as in step 2 and out of the same blue cardstock and the 4th to the smallest cut a blue mat.  Adhere the sentiment circle to the blue circle.

Step 6:  Make a base card by scoring an 11 x 8.5″ pc. of white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Trim to 5 x 7″ with a book fold.  Cut a rectangle from a designer paper that looks wintery and measures 4.75 x 6.75″.  Adhere this rectangle to the front of the base card.  Optional Note:  I created in word, the inside sentiment and printed it on white cardstock first.

Step 7:  Adhere the matted larger “image” circle to the top half of the front but make sure you leave room to layer on the “Entwined Circle” as shown:

Then adhere the Entwined circle over the top.  Repeat for the smaller “sentiment” circle in the lower left of the card.

Step 8:  I added clear Wink Of Stella to the snowflakes and a silver clear glitter dot to the center of each.  Glue the snowflakes as shown.
