Today my card I have created to give to friend that has just become a first time Grandmother.
I thought the Lama from the Zoo Crew Suite was a must for this card, with her sitting there busy knitting away….maybe creating something fun for a new baby.
I stamped the Lama with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured it using Stampin’ Up! Blends.
When layering the Designer series Paper I felt it needed a bit of a lift, the two pieces of DSP with a white background was just too similar and needed to be a little different. A good way to change this with out completely changing the paper is to colour it. There are many ways you can colour your DSP and for this card I used the Lemon Lolly Blends. By using the Brush Nib end of your blend, colour the DSP – making sure you use the side of the brush not the point.
How to make this card…
If you get lost for ideas on card layouts, check out places like Pinterest. Here you can find lots of ideas by searching ‘Card Templates’ or ‘Card Sketches’. CardMaps and MojoSketch on Pinterest. I have a board on my Pinterest site called ‘Card Templates’ were I have saved card ideas. Sometimes I use these ideas when I’m feeling a bit lost for an idea or need some inspiration. When you do use an idea that not your own and share on Social Media (etc), then give credit to Where or Who inspired you.
