We Have Each Other

Hello, Rubber Cafe friends!  Shellye here today with my first post as Guest Designer...I'm so excited to be sharing and crafting with the adorable "Love Makes You Family" November Kit.

To get started, I cut a base card to measure 4.25"X5.5" from the green cardstock and scored it with an opening to the right.  Next, I cut the woodgrain paper from the 6X6 pad to 4"X5.25" and attached it to the center of the card front.

A 3.5" oval die was used to die-cut the floral pattern. It was layered with a 3" oval cut from the green cardstock with foam adhesive in between.  A scroll die (also by Echo Park Paper) was used to cut the design from the blue dot paper.  This was attached to the bottom/back of the floral oval and then glued to the center of the woodgrain paper.

The owl duo from the Family Tree Stamp Set was stamped onto the off-white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black. The owls were then colored in with Prismacolor pencils and then blended with Gamsol.  The piece was die-cut with a 2.5" oval and inked around the edges with the Mini Ranger Distress Ink – Antique Linen.

 The "when we have each other we have everything" sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped onto the green cardstock and punched out with a banner punch.  The banner was added to the side with foam adhesive and topped with a bow made from the aqua ribbon found in the kit.  A trio of red enamel dots (from my stash) were added to the bottom and the card is complete!
