Parisian Breeze Wonderful Hedgehog

Stamped my Penny Black hedgehog on Confetti White with Staz On, coloured with SU markers and inkpads with aqua pen to obtain the matching colours.

Cut into shape with Nestibles background mat from Parisian Breeze Textured Designer Series Pattern Paper by Stampin Up in the next size to make a frame. Foam mount onto background card when completed.

Cut another mat from Parisian Breeze DSP papers, the top floral border layer is just a scrap, some pieces cuttlebugged to add texture.

The front of the card was punched with SU scallop borderpunch to give a gentle softening effect on the lower edge.

I used the bold stripe to make the card itself this time which has a lovely floral on the other side making the inside very girly. You can only get away with this because this lovely textured dsp paper is of a cardstock weight.

I added a liner with more cardstock for quality and texture; which I have uploaded separately. I also added a small strip of another contrasting stripe to the bottom edge of the back inner of the card which shows below the scallop edge to add a bit more interest, layers texture and contrast.

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 Flower, Pearl Brad and an organza ribbon and bow.
