hugs & kisses
My husband is gone working away from home during the week now and only home on the weekends. He's been doing it for a few weeks now. It's hard on all of us, but we are making the best of the situation. I created this card a couple weeks ago and tucked it into his bag before he left for the week.
I used the adorable April and Peter bunny stamps from CC Designs. I stamped them together on my white cardstock and colored them with copic markers. Then, I stamped them again on some scraps of patterned paper (the same papers I would be using on my card). I cut out Peter's overalls and April's dress and paper pieced them over my images. I added a little shading to their clothes with copic markers. Then, I stitched around the edge of my blue patterned paper before adhering it to my black card base. By doing it before, you don't have to worry about there being stitching inside the card that needs covered up. I stitched my pink patterned paper to it's mat and stitched the buttons in place before adhering the layer to my card. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of my card and added a chipboard heart with a button stitched to it. Last, I added my image using foam adhesive.
Have a wonderful day!
