SOG - Rani Congrats

I was in the mood to do something very bright and colorful, and this Rani digi stamp from Some Odd Girl just looked perfect! I had fun with bright colors and jewel tones. And, of course, I created a whole card around it.

I started by printing out Rani and coloring her in with my Copics. I used darker skin tones, and a mix of pink, blue and gold for her outfit. After she was completely colored in, I carefully cut her aside while I worked on the card background.

I cut and scored a piece of navy cardstock to create a standard A2 card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2"). I also cut a couple of panels: navy (2 1/2 by 4") and white (2 1/4 by 4") that I would use for the sentiment. I stamped the pink decorations and a blue congrats using Altenew's Hennah Elements stamp set.

I rummaged through my stash of papers and found this lovely paisley pattern. The bits of color matched up with the rest of my design, so I cut it into a 4 by 5 1/4" rectangle and adhered it to the card base. I then adhered the navy and white sentiment panel.

Lastly, I added Rani, using some foam squares to make her pop off the page a little. Since the card had plenty of color and detail, I chose not to add any other embellishments.

  1. You are a natural with the SOG stamps! Rani is gorgeous! Coloured perfectly. I love the three panels - and the paisley matches beautifully. You really didn't need any other embellishments either. Gorgeous!

    1. Thanks so much, Kylie! I'm really comfortable with the SOG stamps, and I love their style.

      I hadn't seen many cards using Rani, but she's beautiful so I just had to give it a go. :)
