My card today features the adorable Getting All Mushy stamp and die set. I was drawn to this set by one of the sentiments. My 3 year old niece is really sweet as she’s always saying ‘I love you so much!’, so I just had to make her a card with the cute mushrooms and fun sentiment.
I began by stamping the mushroom images on to a white card base. I did some masking so the middle mushroom would stand in front of the others. I also stamped the same arrangement of mushrooms on a separate piece of white card stock. Using a stamp positioner helped me to get the stamping in exactly the same place, which is important when it comes to lining up the panel over the card base later.
I used copic markers to colour the images on the card base, and added some black gel pen to the eyes to help them stand out.
To create the window opening, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images from the separate piece of cardstock. I trimmed down the panel so it was slightly smaller than my card base, then stamped the sentiment under the window opening.
I added lots of foam tape behind the panel, then layered it over the card base so the coloured images showed through the die cut window. I love the dimension of the panel with the stamped images set back.
To add some finishing touches to the card, I die cut two grass pieces and two hearts from coloured card stock, using dies from the set. I then trimmed down one of the grass pieces to be slightly smaller. I added them to the card with liquid glue, along with a few sparkling clear sequins around the sentiment.
