Welcome to the first week of January’s design for Pootles, using the stamp set Bella and Friends (141870) from the annual catalogue. I have wanted to try a gate fold card for some time and thought this was a good opportunity to have a go.
The card measure 5 by 7 inches and so it a nice size but not too big. The base of from Sweet Sugar plum and the designer series paper is Blooms and Wishes and the sentiment is All Things Thanks (143097) from the Spring Summer catalogue. I mask of the stamp from the Bella and Friends so that I just had the puppy and the balloon without the bird, partly because I wanted to be able to fit the stamp into the Layering Ovals Framelets (141706) and partly beacuseI liked the look.
I also used my Spectrum noir alcohol markers to colour in the image as I like the streak free look of using alcohol markers that you can’t get with water based markers.
Thanks for reading and hope that you will try the stamp set.
God bless and happy crafting.
