‘Just Dropping In’ Card by Sara Naumann
This cute (and cheeky) little fox was an instant Create & Craft audience favourite from My Sentiments Exactly. This sweet and stylish image also allows for so many fun techniques, like paper piecing! Design Tip: My Sentiments Exactly gives you ‘innies and outies’ — sentiments for the outside of the card, along with coordinating sentiments for the inside. This gives you lots of options and variety for creating heartfelt messages!
You Will Need:
- The Fox Says Stamp Set from My Sentiments Exactly
- 40 Sheets of Super Smooth Card 250gsm
- Rare Earth Pitch Black Ink
- Rare Earth Load ‘N’ Fold Solid Stamp Tool
- Cardstock: Black, Teal, Yellow, Kraft
- Teal Baker’s Twine
- Kraft Card Base
Use the Load ‘N’ Fold to stamp the fox and the sentiment onto white card
Stamp the fox onto Kraft card. Stamp the balloons onto yellow, then teal card.
Cut out the fox from Kraft card. Cut out the yellow dotted balloon, the plain teal balloon, and the yellow strap.
Glue them over the original image stamped onto the white cardstock. Tip: The tiny yellow strap is small and fiddly; if it proves too small, simply leave it off..
For the card front: Glue a strip of yellow card on the back of the stamped focal, along the left side. Mat onto black, then teal. Wrap with baker’s twine, then glue to the front of the Kraft card base. Tie a bow in baker’s twine and add, as shown.
For the card inside: Stamp just the balloons onto white card. Repeat the paper piecing technique to add a teal dotted balloon and a plain yellow balloon. Mat onto yellow and teal and glue inside the card.
Stamp the sentiment on white card, then mat on teal and glue to the card inside, overlapping the ends of the balloon strings.
