Making Mother Proud...

With Mother's Day just around the corner in America, one of our American Design Team Members, Steph Ackerman, has created this adorable card for us. Here is how she produced it...

"Today I stamped this cute pup from Stampavie on Cryogen White Cardstock.  Then I used ZIG® Brushables to color her.  The ZIG® Brushables are awesome markers because they come as dual colors.  One end is the full color and the other end is 50% lighter. 

Create a 5 1/2" square card from pink cardstock.

Use your Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy to score at 5 1/2" and fold to create the card base.

Stamp the image and color with the following markers:
Cool Cucumber
Pale Yellow
Baby Pink
Platinum (not shown)

Using the ZIG® Brushables makes it very easy to create dimension in your projects by creating gradient colors.

Cut black cardstock 5" x 5" and adhere to the card base.

Cut green cardstock 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" and adhere to the card.

Place a rub-on sentiment on a strip of green cardstock and mat with black cardstock.

Add across the center of the card.

Die cut a large oval from black cardstock and adhere over the sentiment with foam adhesives.

Add the image with foam adhesives for dimension.

There you have a sweet card for Mom"
