Our Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps challenge theme today is Clean & Simple, oh my do I struggle!
I've been working on making more CLEAN & SIMPLE cards and thought playing in some of those type challenges would help me develop my skills. I love how my card turned out but I have to tell you leaving it alone is so very difficult for me!
I used the Paper Smooches clear stamp set called Zoo Crew for my card.
The cute hippo is colored with Copic markers:
W1, W3, W5, RV10, RV21
She's cut out and popped up with foam tape just above the banners for a little dimension and texture.
I made the banners using Basic Grey Bittersweet & Ambrosia patterned papers, the envelope liner is from the same Basic Grey Bittersweet collection and made using a Papertrey Ink envelope liner die. To make my banner ends I used an EK Success square punch.
Attached everything to the one layer card base and stamped the "hippo hooray" sentiment.
There is a birthday sentiment on the inside, this card is ready to go into my stash of birthday cards.
