For this week's new sketch #435, I really wanted to focus on the three circle element on the card. That is where my eye drew me in! So - I pulled out one of my favorite MFT sets Bitty Bears, and decided to create what could be a celebratory card of any kind!
I stamped out my images onto white card stock and colored them in with my Copic Markers. Then, I used the Bitty Bears Die-Namics to cut them out. For what I will call the "split layer" portion of the sketch, I used my favorite Blueprints 27 Die-namics and die cut a piece of Black Licorice card stock, and then I used the longest banner die for the blueprints die-namics set, and used it as a guide to die cut the upper center portion of my black layer. It took the guesswork out of measuring, and created the perfect sized gap for this particular layer. All I need to do was start adhering to my white card base. Before adhering though, I white heat embossed the "It's Time To Party" sentiment from the same Bitty Bears stamp set.
I adhered my black layer, and then I added some foam tape to the back of my bears to give them some dimension, and help pop them up on the card. For a final touch, I added a bit of white gel pen detail to the bears cheeks, the cupcake, balloon and present, followed by a bit of black glaze pen to darken up the bears eyes :)
Super simple design, but so so fun and happy!! I look forward to bringing you a new post every Wednesday this month! Thank you to the MFT team for inviting me to Guest Design!
