Designer’s Tip: I painted in the beads, dress, and decoration on the hat of the stamped image with Smooch™ inks for a colorful, shimmery look that really pops against the background papers.
- Front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover the card with Azalea Suede. Cut a strip of pink Dazzling Diamonds and place along the bottom edge of the card.
- Trace the Design Tool Kit #2 Vintage Label shape on the back of the Crocodile Brown specialty paper. Cut it out and foam tape it centered on the card, 1/4” from the top. Cut a 5”x1/4" Crocodile Brown specialty paper and glue on the card even with the top edge of the pink Dazzling Diamonds.
- Stamp the woman/hat image on white cardstock with brown ink. Color in the base of the hat with PP3, and the face and neck with FS6. Add PP1 for the cheeks, then blend it with the blender pen. Color the lips with PP5 and the hair with EB8. Paint in the beads and the decoration on the hat with Dusk Smooch ink. Paint in the dress with Juniper Smooch ink. Let dry, then cut out the image, trimming the edges of the dress as shown. Foam tape the stamped image centered on the left side of the Crocodile Brown paper.
- Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with brown ink. Color in each word block with PP3, PP5, or FS6 pens as shown. Cut out the individual word blocks and foam tape them on the right side of the Crocodile Brown shape near the woman/hat image. Use 1/2" wide pink/ivory dots ribbon to tie a bow. Wrap the center with a piece of pink Dazzling Diamonds and secure at the back. Zot™ near the words as shown. Add Dazzling Diamonds to the hat as shown.
