Hi There! Hedgehog Card
Happy Wednesday! Aren’t these little hedgehogs just so stinkin’ cute? They are THE stars of Stampin’ Up!’s Hedgehugs stamp set! In my imaginary world, I picture them the best of friends. Perfect for an adorable HI-HELLO-THINKING OF YOU card. Who wouldn’t want to open their mailbox and find this cute hedgehog card?!
In my mind, they just need to be playing on a log. Not sure why- but, we’re going with it! So Early Espresso was my first color choice. Soft Sky was my second- mostly because I had a scrap from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper sitting on my desk that I thought I could use. In the design, I thought it could allude to sky, as well. After that, red seemed the obvious choice to brighten up the other two. Together, they work really well, with a bit of vintage vibe.
The coloring on the hedgehogs was done with Stampin’ Blends markers and a brush of Wink of Stella glitter. Of course, hedgehogs should shimmer, too! Color in a little grass to “ground” them, and you’re done.
I do LOVE Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (TIEF) to add that special oomph to a card and the Pinewood Planks 3-D TIEF was just what I wanted for that wood effect. Another option could be the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. Either would work, depending on what you have on hand. I highly recommend both.
ACCESSORIZE YOUR CARD
Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card, too- as well, as the envelope. It’s like accessorizing an outfit. It dresses thing up and ties everything together.
Ever made a mistake just when you were about to finish? I messed up the sentiment below AFTER I had everything else colored. Argh! Not wanting to throw it away, I just stamped it on a scrap piece and covered over it. Problem solved and my girlfriend will never know. So take heart if it happens to you and do a little creative up 🙂
Have fun playing with these cute little forest creatures! So many options with this cute stamp set. If you’d like to see another card made with this Hedgehugs set, check it out HERE (it’s toward the bottom of the post).
Hope you brighten someone’s day with this adorable hedgehog card. It’s the real reason why handmade is heartfelt!
