Feel Better Card

Hi, it's Stephanie here and today I have a card and video to share using the Bad Day stamp set. I love the adorable monster images in this set and find myself wanting to create with them often. ;)

I decided to keep my card simple by leaving the focus on the monster image. I did add some subtle texture and layering to give it a bit of detail and dimension but overall I kept the design very simple.


I love how cute that little monster looks coloured with hot pink! I love the pop of bold colour against the grey garbage can and white background. To create the embossing around the monster I used an embossing folder and a diffuser plate to only emboss the panel where I wanted. Such a quick and easy way to add subtle dimension.


The sentiment is stamped on a white banner and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. It's actually covering up a sentiment that I stamped directly on the card and didn't like. Always try and think of ways to cover up mistakes rather than starting your card completely over.

To see how I created the card you can watch the video below:
