Cocoa Hugs + Kisses

I made another card using May Flaum's "square in a square" sketch for the "Design" class in Camp Scrap. I stamped one of the images from the "Cocoa's Heart" set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on a piece of white cardstock, using Colorbox "Putty" Archival Dye ink. I stamped a greeting from Hero Arts' "Year Round Sentiments" set underneath in Colorbox Chestnut Roan chalk ink, then die cut it with a Spellbinders "Scalloped Labels One" die. I colored the image with colored pencils, and used Gamsol on a paper stump pencil to blend the colors. I stamped Cocoa's head on another piece of white cardstock and colored it, then cut it out and adhered it with clear foam adhesive over his head in the original stamped image, just to give it some pop.

For the card front, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye "Adorbs" 6x6" pad, from their "Cut and Paste" collection. I adhered the focal panel in the middle of that piece. I punched 2 border strips from more white cardstock using a Fiskars border punch. Then I glued them to the top and bottom edges of the patterned paper. I finished by adhering the front to a standard A2 card base.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
