I like to try and stretch my stamps and use them for all year round. The otters from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp’s A Christmas Like No Otter are too cute to only use once a year. This is a birthday card I made using that stamp set.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began this card by stamping and coloring the images from the stamp sets. I used colored pencils. When I was finished, I fussy cut the images out leaving a small white border.
I stamped a strip of brown paper with a wood grain pattern using white pigment ink. I used a stitched border die to add interest to the edges of this panel. I added that to the center of a white card base.
Next, I created a focal panel for my cute otter to live on. I die cut a few different shades of blue paper. I used a stitched rectangle die and a scalloped border die. I layered the three layers together and added the sentiments. Then, I adhered the kelp images to the corners. I adhered the focal panel to the card. Lastly, I adhered the otter with a mini action wobble for added fun.
