The cuteness factor: HIGH! The amazing view factor: HIGH! Fun technique factor: HIGH! This Meerkat Silhouette Sunset card is just adorable and I’m going to share with you how to make it!!!
I started with a Mango Melody card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the lizard in the corner and added it to the card front. I just had to add him to the card because he’s adorable!
Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the meerkats on there in Memento Black Ink. Then using the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored them all in. Then I placed a 1-1/2″ scrap circle over the center of the card. It should cover up some of the meerkats. Starting with Mango Melody, I sponged the color around the circle making sure it didn’t move. Next, I took a Daffodil Delight Sponge Dauber and colored the rest of the way out, making sure to blend the colors together. Be sure to go over the meerkats so the color gets everywhere. Now you have that fabulous sunset and silhouette look.
In order to make the meerkats not look like they were floating, I took a scrap piece of Basic Black and ripped it along the top. Then I placed this under the meerkats and trimmed off the excess. This layer was added to a Basic Black piece of cardstock before adding it to the card front. This makes the image pop more!!
For the greeting, I stamped it in Mango Melody Ink. All of these images are from the Sale-A-Bration Gangs All Meer Stamp Set. Woot Woot for free stamps! Using the Label Me Lovely Punch, I layered these images today. I just trimmed off pieces of the punched image to get a different look. Check out this video on that! I’m still debating on where I want to add a few rhinestones either above the lizard or on either sides of the greeting. The yellow/orange ones in the Holiday Basics Rhinestone Pack would work perfectly!
