As Seen in Papercraft Essentials!


If you've seen the latest issue of 'Papercraft Essentials' magazine, you might have spotted a collection of hedgehog cards using Little Claire stamps in the 'cut out and keep' section in the middle of the magazine.  The cards were made by members of the Design Team and this is my card made using the very cute 'Splishing and Splashing' stamp.

The base of the card is half of a 5" square card blank folded in two and then I've rounded the bottom corners and added layers of kraft and patterned paper.  The image was stamped and coloured with Promarkers and then I've paper pieced the umbrella to match the patterned paper.  The image panel was then layered on to kraft and I finished the card with Card Candi coloured with a Promarker.

Here's how the card looks in the magazine:

Some challenges for this card:

Craft Us Crazy - 'favourite colour/embellishment' (Card Candi and paper piecing if that counts as an embellishment!)
2 Sisters Challenge - 'anything goes'
Allsorts Challenge - 'it's your choice'

I'll be back tomorrow with a brand new challenge from The Squirrel and the Fox!
