I was given the FancyFish Digital Stamp from Oakpond to work with.

Here is the card I designed for this week's challenge.

This week I decided to make an easel card.  For a tutorial on how to make the base of this card, Click HERE.  After the base was made, follow the steps below to complete the card:
  1. Color the digi stamp (for this project, the image was colored using the Photoshop program).
  2. Print and cut the image using a cutting machine (for this project, the Silhouette Cameo was used).
  3. Emboss  the background paper.
  4. Attach the digital stamp to the embossed background paper (circle- cut with the Cricut cuttng machine).
  5. Cut a strip from the background paper.  Emboss with the Polka Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
  6. Attach the ribbon to the strip prior to adhering it to the card.
  7. Create the sentiment using the Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. 
  8. Cut and adhere the bubbles and hearts to the card.
