Have a Magical Day!

Today's card features a digital stamp by Wendy Burns from her alldressedupstamps Etsy shop: Magical Day. It is a super adorable stamp, and I just love this character style. Wendy Burns also has a few of her fun characters in clear stamp sets over at My Favorite Things, so check them out.

I started by printing the stamp onto some Copic X-Press It blending cardstock. I trimmed down the image and rounded all 4 corners with my Corner Chomper., on the 1/2" setting. I then colored in the girl and the cat, creating a dotty purple border around them.

I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple. I created the card base by cutting and scoring a sheet of Kraft cardstock into a top-folding A2 card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2"). I grabbed a piece of grey heart paper from Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad and cut it to measure 4 by 5 1/4". I adhered the stamped panel to the patterned paper with foam tape.

The bottom of the card felt a little bare, so I tied a piece of white ribbon around it. Then I adhered the whole panel to the card front with my standard adhesive.

  1. The more I see how you create amazing cards with digi stamps the more I want to try them. This image is SOOO cute! And your colouring is perfection as always. :) The ribbon does set it off perfectly.

    1. I was so sure I'd replied to you already! I am so scattered today...

      But thank you so much! I hope you do get to try digis sometimes. They're really fun to work with, especially if you want to go for a different size. There have been a few stamps I wished were bigger and a few that would have been great in a smaller size. With digis, you can make them bigger or smaller and that's really fantastic. :D
