Naps Purever!by Celia Morse
Hey there Roadies!
It's Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs here to show y'all this fun window card I created using the PurrMaids stamp.
First I cut a card base to an A2 size and a front panel to 4 x 5.25. I stamped out the napping kitty and used alcohol markers to color her up. I added some fun sparkly details with gel pens for some highlights.
After gluing the marbled panel to the front of the card, I ran it through my die cutting machine with a scalloped circle die. I also inked around the window to add a bit of emphasis.
To add some interest, I grabbed another 4 x 5.25 marbled paper and adhered it to the inside of my card. The front was a little weak since I had cut thru a lot of the right side, so I cut a skinny strip of the same light purple used for the base, to connect the top and bottom of the card
After that, I also inked around the front and inside of the card with both Wilted Violet and Peacock Feather Distress Oxides ink. To create the sea floor, I went into my scrap box and pulled out a piece of thin paper bag. I crumpled and un-crumpled it a few times to give it some texture and then glued it to the bottom of the card. I also added "sand" to it my dotting copper, orange and sparkly gel pen. Then I went into my Ink Road stash, and grabbed the FckYeah and Dinah sets to create my inner sentiments. I stamped "Naps Purrever", "Never put off til tomorrow what you can straight up cancel" and "Get Well Soon" from the Basics Sentiment Strips on diecut vellum pieces.
I used some Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feather Distress Oxides on the back of the speech bubble diecut to make it stand out a bit more.
After getting my PurrMaid attached inside the window, I grabbed some puffy hearts to sprinkle around the front. They weren't exactly the right coral color I needed so I went back to my alcohol markers and made pink ones into the same coral as her fishy tail.
I did emboss some clear irradescent bubbles about the inside and outside of the card, but they weren't very noticeable on the outside.
I love the way the card came out in the end though! I love that it seems all nice and sweet until you open it up!
