I was lucky enough to find this set of stamps at Archivers at their recent closing down sale and I got matching felt shapes too! I think it's just perfect for a little boy. I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#67, the colours from The Paper Players - PP#186 and the theme from Keep it Simple - KIS#35 to use stripes. I stamped the robot onto white card, coloured it with Copics and then fussy cut it out and ran it through my Xyron to make it self-adhesive. I stamped the mini pinstripe background in yellow, attached the robot and then cut it to size. I cut a blue panel the same size and adhered both to the card. I finished the front with the sentiment and some arrows pointing inside. On the inside I made a mat layer of more blue design paper and on the white panel I stamped the robot in grey, added some yellow stars and a birthday greeting. This card is already on its way to the UK, but it's going to be late!!
The last couple of days have been wonderful with mild temperatures and sunshine. But what a difference today. Kathryn has a snow day, it's coming down thick and fast, and we're expecting about 8" of snow over the day. Good thing Jonathan brought his computer home, he can work from here. Don't think I'm going out at all today. That's all for now. See you soon.
