So long since the last post! Sorry for being MIA. We went on a vacation to Canada: Montreal, the Rockies, and Vancouver. We had a great time and I got amazed for the beauty of Canadian natural parks, the kindness of the locals and the vivid cities. I’m sure I’ll return to Canada in the future!!
Today I’m sharing a pop-up card I made more than a month ago, for Spanish Mother’s Day, and that I haven’t given to the recipient yet. Anyway, I hope she likes it! So, with the hype of GOT final season, I decide to make an ASOIAF themed card. Mama Elephant “Me and My Dragon” and “Dragon Wishes” stamp sets have absolutely darling images! These may be some of my all time fav stamp set!
First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I tried to match the colors of the dragons in the books, but I couldn’t color a Viserion I liked (white and gold) so I went for a blue and pink dragon. I used a white gel pen to add details to the dragons and die cut the images using coordinating dies. For the card front, I used a piece of pattern paper from Dear Lizzy’s Lovely Day collection. I think this paper is perfect for the card, with Dany riding Drogon, adhered with foam tape. The word Mom is stamped with Lawn Fawn Narwhal ink using La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” caligraphy stamp set.
For the inside of the card, I used Mama Elephant “Kingdom Trio” dies on several colors of Canson Mi-Teintes paper. I know I’ve said it before, but I love the texture of this paper! I used Lawn Fawn “Everyday Pop-ups” dies to build the scene. For the background, I blended Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress inks. Last, I adhered the images and stamped the sentiment from “Dragon Wishes” with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on white.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week!
