Hi everyone, yesterday was my brother-in-laws birthday and I thought he’d really like the meerkats from The Gang’s all Meer. I was inspired to make a card inspired by the example shared in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. I was trying to put my own spin on the original design but it just fell a little flat, in my opinion. I’m sharing it below so you can see.
Here’s the Card…
I then decided that I needed to remake the card but put more of my own style onto it and I am so much happier with it.
Here’s the next version of the Card…
This one makes me so much happier. Do you have a preference?
You might also notice that the pompoms actually match the party hats. To do this, I took the white pompoms from the Assorted Pompoms pack and dyed them with a drop of ink from the reinker. My BIG tip here is to use just a tiny drop as a little goes a long way. I then placed a piece of paper on top of the pompom and placed an acrylic block on top to sort of push out the extra ink. The piece of paper absorbs the extra ink. The other thing is that you want it to be completely dry before you add to the card or place it in an envelope as it will ooze out. It’s so good being able to match the pompoms to the colours of your project.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
