Hi Stampers. For today’s blog, we were giving a sketch and asked to use this as a basis for today’s card. The moment I saw it, I knew what I wanted to create! I am so happy with how it came out.
I made a Pokemon card! That circle with starts just looked like the image you get when you catch a pokemon in a pokeball on Pokemon Go (an online game).
I started with a Basic Black card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. The next layer is a a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Daffodil Delight CS. Next up is a 5″ x 3 3/4″l layer of Pacific Point CS that was dry embossed with the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Across the lower part of the card front, I used a Basic Black strip of cardstock 4 1/4″ x 3/4″, followed by a Whisper White strip of card stock 4 1/4″ x 1/2″.
For the Pokeball, I used two – 2 1/2″ circles of cardstock – Real Red CS and Whisper White CS. I cut the Real Red circle in half and glued it on top of the Whisper White circle. Across the middle is a 1/4″ strip of Basic Black. I cut it a little bit long, and trimmed off the sides after gluing it down. The button is made by using a 1/2″ circle and a 1/4″ circle. They were all glued together and then attached to the card front. The stars are made using a retired punch (sorry about that). They are attached with glue dots.
I always decorate the inside of the card even if it’s just a little something small. These stars are from the Loyal & True stamp set, but any star would work. I hope you love it – I know my granddaughter will!
