Hello there, crafty friends! It’s Amanda Fitterer here and today I am sharing this absolutely adorable forest friends card that I made using items from the December 2020 Subscription Box! If you haven’t received yours yet, you should be getting it soon! This box is probably my favorite one yet. I am a sucker for woodland animals and this box has 3 fun stamp sets! To see the stamp sets and the rest of the contents of the box, you can click here to see the reveal video.
Forest Friends Card
Now, onto the card tutorial! I started with the Mama Elephant Six Window Cover Creative Cuts Die. I stamped some pretty leaves, branches, and acorns from the Animal Greetings Stamp Set. This set was included in the December Box.
For my card base, I used the Trees Stencil that was also in the December Box. I blended the trees with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.
Now onto my favorite part – The Forest Friends! I stamped my images with Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink and then colored them in with Copic markers. Then, I used detail scissors to cut out each image. I really need to get a Scan n Cut machine, but fussy cutting can be relaxing when I have the time!
For my sentiment, I grabbed the Animal Greetings Stamp Set again and stamped the sentiment with Versamark Watermark Ink onto black cardstock. Next, I used white embossing powder and my heat tool to melt the powder. I fussy cut this sentiment out as well.
I adhered everything to my card base with 3D foam strips and squares. Here are some close-ups of the finished card!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I am pretty excited to get back into the craft room and make some more Forest Friends cards and other creations! There’s another stamp set not shown in this project that is calling my name!
Remember, if you want these stamp sets and stencils, you have to get the December Subscription Box! You have until December 14th to buy it. To see all the Subscription Options, you can go here.
