Hello crafty friends! Check out these cute little mushrooms from the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month club for this month. This die kit also comes with the dies to make gnomes and a squirrel, but I really wanted to use the mushrooms on this card!
When you have a card idea with lots of die cutting, I find it best to figure out all the cuts you will need and then get them all cut first. So that’s how I started. Once I had all of the pieces I assembled my mushrooms with some liquid adhesive.
For the background of my card I stamped the Sketchy Lines background stamp from Simon Says Stamp onto some white cardstock using Oatmeal Cookie ink from Fun Stampers Journey. Next I made an A2 size card base out of Dark Roast cardstock (also from FSJ) and adhered my stamped background onto that. I arranged all of my mushrooms on the card and once I figured out a placement I was happy with I popped them up with foam tape. I then glued the grass the to bases of the mushrooms with liquid glue.
For the sentiment I found some stamps in my collection which say “thanks so much” and carefully masked off the letter “c” in the word “much” with some tape. I then inked up the stamps and removed the tape so that the ink was not on that one letter. I stamped that onto some white cardstock with the Oatmeal Cookie so my sentiment read “thanks so m ch” and then I cleaned the stamps off really well. I then placed the sentiment into my Misti so that the letter “s” from the word “so” lined up where the missing “c” was. I masked off all the letters except the “s” and inked up the stamp. I then stamped the “s” so that my completed sentiment would read “thanks so mush” which goes perfectly with the theme of the card.
I cut my sentiment into a strip and glued it along the bottom edge of the the grass. For the finishing touched I added a few sequins and dot embellishments. I also went over the white spots on the mushroom tops with Journey Glaze.
