Darling Donkeys Are So Much Fun!
Updated: Feb 19, 2021
Darling Donkeys make me smile every time I see them. They are so much fun! Watch the video on how to make the card here.
I particularly like the Darling Donkeys with the Oh So Ombre papers. The colors are just spectacular.
This was my first time using the brick and mortar embossing folder, which I just got. I love the way it came out. I also used my Stampin' blends to color the basic rhinestones. Being able to color the rhinestones to match your project makes them so useful.
It's easy to color the donkeys with Stampin' Blends. Tie it with the gold trim and you are done!
This would be a great card for anyone and anything. Remember to watch the video. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it. Thanks for spending some time with me!
Ingredients: Darling Donkeys stamp set; thick basic white and basic white cardstock; Oh So Ombre designer series paper; tuxedo black ink; light and dark granny apple green, crumb cake, petal pink, and rococo rose Stampin' blends; brick and mortar 3d embossing folder; gold trim from Forever Greenery trim pack; basic rhinestones; liquid glue or seal and Stampin' dimensionals; trimmer; paper snips; and Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine.
Recipe: Cut a piece of thick basic white in half horizontally, score in half again, and fold to create a regular card base that is 5.5x4.25" (optional: use your bone folder to create a sharper crease). Cut a piece of granny apple green Oh So Ombre paper to 5.25x4". Using liquid glue or seal, attach to the card base. Cut a piece of basic white to 4x3.75". Run through the Big Boss using the brick and mortar 3d embossing folder. Wrap a piece of gold trim around and tie on the left.
Color three basic rhinestones with granny apple green Stampin' Blends and set aside to dry.
Stamp sentiment and donkey on basic white. Using all Stampin' Blends, color the donkey. Cut out with paper snips. Cut the sentiment with snips or trimmer.
Using dimensionals, adhere the donkey and the sentiment. Add the basic rhinestones.
