Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca Card Directions:
Step 1: Die Cutting
Cut cardstock at 8.5 X 5.5 and score at 4.25 (create a card that is 4.25 X 5.5).
Cut a scrap piece of cardstock at 4.25 X 5.5
Using Small Stitched Circles Die, die cut a circle in the front center of the card, slightly to the top of center.
Cut a matching circle in the scrap piece of cardstock.
Step 2: Stamping
Stamp the Alpaca in the center of the circle on your card base
Stamp the sentiments “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” on the card front.
Stamp the sentiment “(Alpaca my scarf) inside at the bottom of the card base.
Step 3: Creating a mask
Stamp the Alpaca on a full adhesive post it sheet and cut around it on the black line.
Step 4: Creating the background
Place your alpaca mask over your stamped alpaca impression. Tape down circle template stencil you created with the scrap cardstock, making sure it is lined up with the outer card front circle. Using your peacock feathers distress ink and an ink blending tool, fill in the circle, blending well.
Place snowflake stamp on acrylic block and holding at least 1 foot away, spray the stamp 3 times with mister – wipe around stamp on acrylic block to remove water. Stamp the damp snowflake down on the peacock feathers background and hold for 8 – 10 seconds, lift straight up and repeat until space is filled with snowflakes. Optional: Dry with a heat gun.
Step 5: Color and finish
Using the Stampin’ Write marker, color in the scarf and stamp the heart above the word scarf.
Using the Wink of Stella, color in the Alpaca.
