I Dig You

Here’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch. I couldn’t resist some of the adorable new petite sets from the recent Petiteapalooza at Taylored Expressions, so I put one of them to use for this card.

I Dig You-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored Expressions
I ended up flipping the sketch to accommodate the image from the I Dig You set. I stamped the excavator (I looked up the name of the machine on Google to be sure!) on TE’s white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut out the image. It’s set on a round panel using foam tape. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I layered a pair of torn kraft panels to try to get the appearance of a pile of dirt!

I covered the right side of the card with a gingham patterned paper panel. The panel was wrapped with some twine before I attached it to the kraft card base. The image panel hides the twisted mess in the center of the twine. Once I had the image in place, I added the coordinating “I dig you” sentiment to the cardfront, overlapping both the image panel and the card base.  What a fun card for a special little boy!

Materials Used:
I Dig You stamp set, white cardstock (Taylored Expressions); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Terracotta Tile and Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); A Boy’s Life 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); circle dies (Spellbinders); pierced circle dies (My Favorite Things); twine (Lawn Fawn); foam tape
