Let’s meet Clyde!

Hello my friends!

Today I want to share with you a very simple card…but sooo cute! When I saw this adorable dragon that Jodie has drawn for Bugaboo stamps…I just fell in love! Isn’t he super sweet?! His name is Clyde (if you are interested in buying the stamp).

If you have visited my blog before you may know that I often tend to create simple cardsΒ  but I struggle to leave loads of white space… however I really wanted to join the Less is More challenge… so I resisted the temptation to add abit of “something” in the background and kept my design minimalistic! I let Clyde do the show! πŸ™‚

Quick Instructions:

To make this card I traced the image on white cardstock cause I wanted to use my Copics. Once I colored the image I fussy cut it and then I started working on the rest of my card. I cut a stripe of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment. Then I draw lines around my cardbase to create some sort of border. I stuck the black stripe of paper on my card base using double sided tape. Since the card is really simple I decided to adhere my image using double sided foam tape to make it pop and create some dimension. To finish off my card I drew a few clouds of smoke to add a fun element. Hope you like it!

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
