Red Bugs and Red Wood

Red Bugs and Red Wood Card









Hello All! Here is the card I made for my mummy to give to my nephew (her grandson). This is similar to the one featured in Sam (Pootles) birthday blog hop. 

Sorry for the poor quality photos, I was rushing to the hospital to see my husband so  tried to fit in work in very un-natural settings lol. 

I used the same retired bug stamp set which I am now selling on eBay as I just wanted to use it for these particular cards. 

I made this when staying with my husband in hospital so I am sorry for the bad pictures and probably forgetting sizes. 

This card is A5. The acetate layer on the left is the same length as the card and 2" wide or 5cm. 

Real Red layer is the width as the base and 3" wide or 7.5cm. I rounded two or the corners on the right hand side.

The white layer is 4" wide or 10cm and 6(ish)" long or 15cm (ish). I rounded the corners on that piece too. 

I stamped the wood background stamp in real red and sponged all the edges. I used the easel from the painter's pallette stamp set and hand cut out the middle allowing the sentiment to be seen from the front and inside of the card.

I added bugs all over to gift the card some texture. I stamped the top sentiments and punched them out. They are attached with foam strips. I used the banners stamp set and masked some letter to spell out grandson. 

I also added some retired gold wink of stella to the card as I am using that all up now. 

Hope you like this card. Again Arsenal colours for my boy!
