My Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn “Christmas Like No Otter” set arrived in the mail this weekend. I couldn’t wait to play with it. Here is the first card I made with this set.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began by stamping all of the images on white card stock. I used Prismacolor pencils to color everything in. Then, I fussy cut everything out. I cut right on the stamped line for everything except the seaweed. I painted the edges of black to hide any cutting errors.
Next, I created a dark brown card base. I used white pigment ink to stamp a wood grain pattern on the card base. While that was drying, I die cut three stitched circles for three different shades of blue paper. I used the lightest blue shade as the sky. I used a scalloped border die to create waves on the other two blue circles. I layered all the circles together to create an ocean scene.
I adhered the seaweed around the circle like a wreath. I added the red bow at the bottom to complete the wreath look. I stamped the sentiment next. I used a mini action wobble spring to adhere the otters to the middle of the circle.
Lastly, I adhered the circles to the card base with foam tape. These otters are soooo cute; I can’t wait to make more cards with them.
