Today is the first day of Spring Break in our household. Naturally, before we get to the fun stuff, my son asked for a veg day. I was very willing to do a veg day. We both slept in, then we went to the Dollar Tree to look for more of the little crates and boxes I like to use for card making supplies.
In anticipation for Spring Break, there are only 3 projects this week using the Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set because I knew we would be busy having some family fun. Then, I found out that the set is now on the retired list! That being so, I would snatch this set up as soon as possible before it runs out.
Our first project of the week uses my favorite origami fold, the Dahlia Fold. You can learn how to do it HERE.
I started this project with a Night of Navy card base that measures 8-1/2″x5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.
The card front, measuring 4″x5-1/4″, is Basic White and I ran it through the embossing machine using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, then glued it to the card base.
Once I made my Dahlia, I glued that down on my card front. To make the racoon pop out a bit more, I placed a 2″ circle punch of Night of Navy. The outline of the heart and racoon is stamped in Basic Gray, the fur is stamped in Smoky Slate, and the heart filler is stamped in Poppy Parade.
To make it look like the racoon is holding the heart, I cut along his little paw with an Exacto blade and tucked the heart under.
Next I stamped my sentiment using Night of Navy on Basic White, and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies. Then I mounted it on a larger rectangle before mounting it to the card front’s lower half with dimensionals.
Look at the dimension on this card! Oh, I also added some bling using the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
