I haven't made a card with my old friend, Cocoa, in awhile. I am taking part in a couple challenges and thought he would be perfect for them.
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July Release Challenge #3 is to include a border on your card. I used one of the Sweet 'n Sassy Lacey Eyelet Border dies to make a border between the patterned paper and the cardstock. I also used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS219) for the card design. Cocoa was colored with Copics and then die cut using the out-of-the-box technique.
Scrapping Everyday Miracles is having a 2nd Birthday Celebration. They have 5 card challenges as some of their celebration events. All the cards made for the challenges are to be sent to Cards for Soldiers. This is an organization that sends blank cards to soldiers for them to send to their loved ones back home. This card is for Challenge #1 which is to make a birthday card using at least 3 patterned papers. Since glitter and lumpy embellishments are to be avoided, I just used a glaze pen on Cocoa's nose and resisted the urge to add embellishments to the flower centers.
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (blue)
Patterned paper: unknown (it's been in my stash for awhile and was part of a RAK)
Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Peek-a-Boo Cocoa), Mark's Finest Papers (Celebrate Big)
Tools/Embellishments: Stampendous embossing powder (White Opaque), Uni-ball Signo (white pen), Sweet 'n Sassy die (Lacey Eyelet Border), Spellbinders (Classic Ovals Large & Small), Copic markers, Sakura glaze pen
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll probably be back several times this week at there are other SNS July Release Challenges and Scrapping Everyday Memories Birthday challenges. See you soon.
