I was recently asked how I decided to pick the stamp sets for my Featured in the Coop series. The real answer is it has to be a stamp set that I LOVE and am willing to create with regularly and that I think has potential for being overlooked in the Holiday Expressions. Of course the cuteness of Hedge Hugs factored into my decision making this month. Seriously – how can you resist?
This card doesn’t feature a sentiment, just this cute little guy beckoning you to open the Gate Fold Card. I used two of my favorite papers from the Grateful Heart paper packet. The scalloped circle is only attached on one side of the panel and the pomegranate burlap ribbon holds the entire card closed. I colored his little body with markers, but I’ve learned a fun technique that I’m going to share next week.
Don’t forget when you purchase the Hedge Hugs stamp set from me I will include a kit to make two cards featuring this little guy.
If you’d like to suggest a stamp set for “Featured in the Coop” leave it in the comment section here and I’ll see what I can arrange.
