DT Day: Lori

Hi, IHP fans!  It's Lori here today with a project featuring stamps and dies from Avery Elle.  As a kindergarten teacher, I couldn't resist the storybook themed Red and Goldie stamp set and matching dies.  They make such cute cards, like this sweet birthday card featuring the Goldie image.

For this card I stamped Goldie on white cardstock and colored her with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut out the colored image.  To add a little pattern to the image, I paper pieced Goldie's skirt using a scrap of gingham patterned paper.  The color of the gingham is a perfect match for Goldie's hair!  The finished image was attached to a simple outdoor scene using dimensional dots.  I stamped the "happy birthday to you" sentiment in the upper right of the corner in black pigment ink. I matted the scene on golden yellow cardstock, then adhered it to a white cardstock panel.

To bring in a bit more of the gingham pattern, I die cut a tag from the same patterned paper using the large tag die from Avery Elle's Simply Tags dies .  I threaded the hole in the top of the tag with some red faux suede ribbon and secured it with a knot, then tucked it underneath the left side of the image panel.

Thanks for stopping by today!
