The Best Kid Ever


Hi everyone, it’s Barb here with a new project!

I love trying new techniques in my paper crafting, so this month’s challenge theme (New to you) is a perfect opportunity to do that. So, I decided to try ‘Double’ partial die cutting…here is my card:

Best Kid - January 11

I started by stamping and die cutting the images, but leaving their feet (or are they paws?) attached to the card base. Then, I partially die cut the circle and cut the remainder of the opening with my Exacto Knife.I inked the background with Soft Pool Shadow ink and colored in the bears with my Copic markers. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and added a few silver stars from my stash. You can click on any of the photos below to link to the supplies I used to create this card.

We would love for you to play along in  This Month’s Challenge. You may enter up to five times to be eligible to win a $25,00 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store with each entry.
