Happy Hedgehog Thank You sent to my Mum in August 09

Stamped my happy hedgehog from penny black with Staz On, coloured with SU markers and inkpads with aqua pen to obtain the matching colours.
Cut shape with Nestibles and background from Parisian Breeze Textured Designer Series Pattern Paper by Stampin Up in the next size to make a frame.

Cut two more mats from Parisian Breeze DSP papers, the top floral layer is cuttlebugged with swiss dots to add texture. The lower mat the punched with SU new Edge Punch to give a pretty lacy effect upper and lower. Then matted onto the brown spot from the same paper pack then onto another pattern which i used to make the card itself as this textured dsp paper is actually a cardstock weight. I did line it with more cardstock for quality and texture; which I have uploaded separately.

All the edges are inked extensively and there is some gold leaf randomly applied to the front that just looks like ink smudges on here but is actually bling like. Finish with an organza ribbon and bow.

  1. Hi Dawn, this card is sooo pretty. I'm loving this pattern paper. Hope SU brings out some more in this texture! That border punch is now at the top of my wish list too!!!
