Octopi’d Heart

Hello there, crafty friends!  I’m here today to share another card using this cute Sunsational Stamps digi, from the Ocean Critters stamp set.


I really love this card.  I think it is going to be an all-time favorite of mine. I love the Aqua Striped Paper (great for an Ocean themed card) against the black, with the red accents to add some POP.   This card was made using digital paper found on the Pixel Scrapper site. If you have never visited Pixel Scrapper you should!  Signing up is free and you will get 5 FREE downloads per day.  It’s a great way to build your digital paper collection!

I printed this cute little Octopus from the set and colored him with Copics.  The hearts border was made with my Silhouette Cameo.  I chose 2 heart shapes and colored one with a background pattern and one with a solid color. I lined them up across a 5-inch rectangle that I had drawn and then used my spacing tool to make sure they were spaced evenly across the rectangle.  I printed this onto some white cardstock and adhered it to a black piece of cardstock.  The sentiment was typed into my Silhouette Cameo software and printed onto a piece of white cardstock which I also matted with some black cardstock.  With the leftover black cardstock I cut out a circle and a flag.  I layered another circle cut from some digital background paper on top of the black circle.  Once everything was cut, I adhered all the pieces onto a piece of 110 lb. white cardstock cut to 5.5-inches wide X 4.25-inches high.

I hope you love my card as much as I do!
