Flowerbed Fred

Pin It
Hi everyone,

I would like you all to meet Heather Valetins new digital stamp flowerbed fred. Isn't he adorable! Fred is the free digi Heather @ Lacy Sunshine is giving away for her challenge this week. I thought he would look good in a green house, so I was trying to make this look like he was sitting in a window sill. The card base is DCWV, and the DSP is all from the recollections botanical steampunk stack. I stapled the bottom layer on to the first layer with the tim holtz tiny attacher. I added 4 black brads on each corner. It is just too busy a design to put a lot of embellishments. I printed fred onto neenah card stock and colored him with copics. I fussy cut him out and added dimensional to the back. The sentiment is a dollar store purchase and the first time it has been used. I think I have had it for at least 4 years. I punched it our with an oval punch and added two small daisies to each end. I will add this card into these challenges.
