PRAIRIE Paper HAVEN

I recently created another card with a Halloween theme, using the Gorjuss Urban Ladybird Stamp set from DoCrafts, and one of the coordinating 8"x8" paper collections.  
I did this card in more of a postcard style, instead of a traditional card.  I cut the base from the Bo Bunny Double Dot Licorice Cardstock, and then cut a mat from Bo Bunny Double Dot Wildberry Cardstock to adhere to the base making it 1/8" smaller than the base itself.  I then cut some of the lighter colored patterned paper from the Gorjuss paper collection to fit over the Wildberry mat, cutting it 1/8" smaller than the mat, so only to show the red cardstock slightly.    
I used an embossing powder jar as a template for my circles for the postcard. Using the bottom of the jar as the size for the sentiment circle and then flipped the jar over and used the lid as the mat size for the sentiment circle. I used my scissors to cut out the circle shapes.  
   
I used the Black Soot Mini Distress Ink to ink the edges of all the papers used for the card, applying it with the round inking tool.   
I stamped the image and used my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers to color them in.  
   
Once the image was colored I cut it out with scissors.  On the original postcard I made, I inked the edges of this image as well, to try and tone down the white cardstock a bit, and I think I liked that better than leaving the edges white.  
   
I adhered the different layers of paper onto eachother, and added a Doodlebug Beetle Black Doily to add more dimension to the card. I added the main mat and the smaller black dot layer to the postcard with Black Foam Squares to add even more height to it. 
I then tied a bow using Burgundy Crepe Ribbon from Creative Impressions. (I absolutely love this ribbon, ties beautifully!)
Lastly, I added the colored image and the sentiment circle to finish off the postcard.  I added some more foam squares on the top and bottom of the image and on the top of the sentiment circle where they hung off the card band, so they would hold up better. 

Hope you enjoy this postcard creation!
Happy Crafting!!!
