Alrighty, then, let’s get down to the card. Fred was stamped on my fave Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I used the washcloth technique to give him some curly fur, then fussy cut him out. Then, I stamped the pinwheel part twice on patterned paper and paper pieced it to match the Die-namics Perfect Pinwheel that I added to the card. To finish off the center of Fred’s pinwheel, I simply inserted a tiny yellow brad and then popped him up on foam.
I used a Die-namics Fishtail Flag STAX element, a Die-namics Notched Border, and a sentiment tag made with another soon-to-be-released Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX (be still my heart), tied on with some Mandarin Orange Baker’s Twine.
Here’s the inside with another Fred and another sentiment from the set:
So, what do you think? Fred’s adorable, right?
