I just had to share this card today because everytime I look at my stack of card swaps, I smile when I see it. I have loved this Noah’s Ark stamp – Two by Two – since it showed up in the catalog this year and have been trying to be good and wait to order it but we will see how long I end up holding out. 🙂
I mean, look how cute the animals are all colored in?

If you heat emboss your stamped image first, it makes it easier to color in and separate the different colors. Then you can just grab your ink pads and a blender pen; or your markers, and start letting your inner artist come out as you color and sponge away! (This next picture tries to show you the embossing… can you see the shiny stuff? :))
Plus there are lots of little details to this card like the Fanfare embossing folder for the embossed Baja Breeze cardstock on the top half of the page, the stitched satin ribbon in the middle, the Itty Bitty Banners stamp and framelits to make the sentiment banner, and the fun bitty buttons for just an added touch in the top corner.
I have to say though, I really like the layered banners for the sentiment myself. What is your favorite detail?
