Penny Black | Celebrate 2017 Collection | Spotlight 2

Hello everyone! This week, I’m back with more cards for Penny Black featuring stamps and dies from their newest CELEBRATE 2017 catalog. The new images are so cool!   

Here is my second card for this spotlight week. Today, I’m showcasing the 30-428 Grad! stamp set:

I love this lady! She looks so great and happy. I went again for a clean and simple design. She is my focal point. I colored her with Copic markers with lots of shading and cut her out with scissors. I then created a top-folded card base and grounded the card with a strip of patterned paper from the newest 80-016 Summertime paper pad. The sentiment that I stamped in black ink is from the 30-358 Happy Snippets stamp set. To finish off my card, I adhered the image with foam pads to the background for more dimension and I added a lot of tiny red stars. The happy lady pops against the clean background and the stars are a festive touch.   

Below are the Penny Black products I used (click to enlarge):

That’s all for me today! See you tomorrow for more spotlights. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
