Dimensional Aperture card featuring Your Next Stamp "Cute Gnomies"
Hello Doodle Friends!
For my White Rose Crafts design team project this week, I created a dimensional aperture card, featuring the absolutely adorable Your Next Stamp "Cute Gnomies" stamp set and Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends "Love Potion" embellishment mix.
I started with an A2 panel of wood grain printed kraft cardstock from my stash, and 1", 1.5" & 2" circle punches to create my apertures in an eye pleasing triangular design. I then placed my punched panel over a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" panel of white Recollections 65# cardstock. I used a pencil to lightly trace the circles, before stamping the three Gnome images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the flower cluster image from the set on the front of the wood grain panel. Next, I set about coloring the aperture images using my Spectrum Noir markers, and the wood grain image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils.
Next, I used 1mm Woodware foam tape to pop up the punched panel & adhered it over my colored gnomies. I selected the "You're awesome and you 'Gnome it!" sentiment from the stamp set and white heat embossed it onto a 1 inch strip of black cardstock, cutting the end at an angle before adhering it to the left, center of my card. Finally, I used a selection of heart confetti and sequins from the Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends "Love Potion" embellishment mix to add some scattered bling to my card. I finished it off with a touch of clear Sakura Stardust pen as flight trails for the little bumblebee and butterfly. I adhered my finished panel to a top folding, white, Recollections 110#, A2 card base.
On the inside, I stamped the simple "'Sup Gnomie" sentiment and one of the gnome images in Scrapberry's Glimmer Pigment Ink Pad in Frost White, for a very subtle bit of interest.
