Hi everyone. Today is my final post as March guest designer for Your Next Stamp. It’s Feature Day at YNS and this month’s theme is laughter. Leave a comment on their blog post here for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice. For my card, the idea came from this 😂 LOL emoji. I initially added tears, but they looked like they were crying rather than laughing.
So…I nixed the tears and created this card.
First I die cut the stripe pattern paper with the largest Stitched Rectangle. I didn’t have the right yellow colour cardstock so I coloured scraps of white cardstock with a Clarity brush and Mustard Seed distress ink. I stamped the faces with black Versafine ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then die cut them with a circle die. To give them definition, the edges were outlined with a Y15 Copic marker. All faces but one were attached to the upper 2/3 of a 3.25″ x 4.5″ white piece of cardstock before it was die cut with the third largest 3″x 4.2″ size Stitched Rectangle.
The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black stitched strip and then adhered below the laughing faces. The last face was adhered to overhang the black sentiment strip.
The card was assembled on a white top folding card base and a few yellow gumdrops were added to finish.
