My Country: Mit Land Bloghop!

Welcome to the bloghop! If you’re just checking in here, you’ll want to go to the top of the hop here and check out why part of this banner is in DANISH! 🙂 Here’s the sketch for my card….

I turned it into what I think is called a Kickstand card – let me know if it’s got another name! But…the front is cut short and a panel stretches to the bottom. It’s not a particularly popular type of card format, but thought it might be a fun thing to try out. I used one of the MFT images in the sets being given away on the bloghop – so be sure to comment and get a set for yourself!

Copics used to color the image: E53, E51, RV69, R37. Stamped the image on white and ran it through my Big Shot, trimmed it as a pieced dress. I debated whether it ought to say “my head” inside – but the stamp in the set says “It’s YOU!” so I decided to go with that! 🙂

Your next stop on the bloghop is my friend

  1. I love the headless stamps because they’re more versatile. If you colored this person as a blonde for example, that might limit who wants to send the card. Also, I’m pretty terrible at coloring skin and hair, so these help! I think this is the first I’ve seen of a “kickstand” card. It’s interesting but I don’t know if my cardstock is hefty enough to pull it off well.

  2. Thank you for the awesome ideas! You are our inspiration.

  3. I really like the placement of the sentiment inside!

  4. Loved your sketch , posted on the Stars and Stamps blog!

  5. ROFL at your “my head” idea for the inside of the card! I often think that about those MFT images, too. I really like the texture you added to the dress.

  6. I’ve never heard of a kickstand card but I like that it’s different than the usual rectangle.

  7. Love your card. Like you have embossed the dress
