Heart2Heart Challenge: Animal/Bird Card is my very first submission to the Heart2Heart card challenge!! I had a blast making this card and can't wait for the next challenge!

I used one of the CTMH Clear Cards for this card, colonial white cardstock, and everything is edged in cocoa.
For the outside:
I stamped the tree twice, cut them out and flipped one over to make a mirror image (stamping the blank mirror image side again). I stamped them both with the tree stamp (using Cocoa for the trunk and Sweetleaf/Garden Green for the leaves) and then inked it in a circle motion with the dobber so they would match a little better since the stamps were a bit off from the whole mirror image bit.
For the inside:
I stamped the hedgehog twice (once in Bamboo and once in Cocoa). I cut them out and put the Cocoa spikes on the Bamboo body.
I stamped the toadstool top in Smoothie and the stem in Chocolate and cut them out. The freckles on the toadstool have been covered in Liquid Glass (a trick by Melinda Everitt from her 2009 Twitterpated chipboard album workshop).
For The Background:
This was done with a brayer, a-la Zinfdorff, using Sky, Dutch Blue and Pacifica. The grass was stamped in Sweetleaf/Garden Green and embossed before brayering. I masked off the moon with a post-it before brayering and then filled it in with a dobber using Crembrule and Goldenrush, allowing the dobber to go outside the lines to give a "moon glow" look. Then stamped the words in Cocoa.
For the Bling...because if it don't shine, then it ain't mine:
I simply added plain blings for the stars and a light blue bling for the hedgehog's eye.
***All product was CTMH (except the brayer and post-it)***

PS. I didn't post a pic, but on the back I cut out a peice of cardstock to match the "scene" and put it on the back to hide the adhesive and so I could sign my name.


  1. Jess, what an amazing scene you've created! This is really adorable (and lots of work!) Thanks so much for joining us at H2H this week :o)

  2. Great card. It can be tricky with the see-through cards, how to best use their feature and still maintain a coherent flow to the card. This one looks great.

  3. Such a whimsical card! Your brayering is fantastic. Love your backgound.
