Smile Mini Card

Hi everyone :-D

Today I have another CAS (clean and simple), mini card to share with you. It´s a Smile Mini Card.



This was quick and easy to make card.

I cut out card base from a white cardstock paper and rounded two opposite corners with round corner paper puncher. Card dimensions are 76 mm x 101 mm (3" x 4"). 

Then I printed a sentiment on the card base that I wrote on my computer, using beautiful 'A Little Pot' free font from Kevin & Amanda Free Scrapbook Fonts.

I stamped cute hedgehog from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set on a piece of white cardstock paper and colored him in watercoloring technique using Tim Holtz´s Distressed Inks, paint brush and water.
While I was coloring I blended two inks together: 
  • face and legs: Tea Dye and Brushed Corduroy 
  • body: Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy

After ink was dry, I fussy cut the hedgehog, colored borders with black permanent marker and added a bit of glossy transparent varnish on his muzzle, eye and eyelid.

To add just a little more interest to this CAS card, I decided to pop up the hedgehog.   
I don´t have any dimensional foam in my stash. While I´m waiting dimensional foam I ordered to arrive, I am using what I have in my stash.  
This time I used small pieces of felt I have. I glued them with universal glue behind the hedgehog and then to the card base. Image is dimensioned, just like I wanted. :-D
