The Gang's All Meer

 Hello Everyone!  I did a Facebook Live this morning, featuring this card:

 


 This is a "card on a card" -  the base is Whisper White and is cut 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" - a quarter sheet of a full 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.

Next layer is Sahara Sand (this was the color I couldn't remember on my FB Live this morning- ACH!!)  or Crumb Cake.

I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I used my 1 1/2" circle punch to punch out the circle on the left hand corner.  Because I was going to make a lot of this particular card, I made a template for perfect placement.

Next I stamped the Meercat with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the Whisper White panel- and colored her with the light and dark Crumb Cake blends.  Her hat was added later - it is stamped with Calypso Coral ink and cut out with my paper snips.

I adhered a small strip of Soft Seafoam DSP to the Crumb Cake Layer, measuring 3/4" x 5 1/4"

For the small card -  I used a piece of Whisper White card stock, cut 2 1/2" x 5 1/4".  I scored it along the long edge at 2 5/8.    Of course,  you could just fold it in half and use a bone folder for a crisp fold.

I used my Stamparatus to set up the three stamps for the inside part of this card.  Again, because I was making several of these cards,  it made sense to place the stamps on my stamparatus!




I added color with my Stampin' Blends.

For the front of the card, I used a panel of Soft Seafoam (this has become one of my favorite colors!)
Next I added the punched circle from the Crumb Cake panel, added a piece of ribbon, added a 1" punched circle of Soft Seafoam and then my greeting.

You can watch my FaceBook Live if you'd like to follow along as I create this card.
