Legendary Nessie Card

I am really happy with how quick and easy this card turned out to be. Added bonus: this card is perfect for the men in your life. We all know how hard making a card that doesn’t feel too girly can be! You can change the greeting to work for Father’s Day, a birthday, or even a retirement card. This card is so versatile that simply by changing the colour scheme you can give this card to just about anyone with a good sense of humour…even teenagers (and they are a tough sell, I know!)

I used Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set to make most of this card. I do not own the dies as of yet (they’ve been ordered and are now on the way!) but it was really simple to cut out the Nessie (or Loch Ness Monster) image. I also used the awesome Hero Arts Bold Diagonal Stripes background stamp to create the card base. This stamp will save me loads of money in the long run because you can make striped design in any colour you have an ink for! Only problem is it can take some time to ink it up if you only have the smaller Altenew, Distress, or Memento cat eye inks. The only other products I used were a bit of Glossy Accents on the water splashes and a selection of COPIC markers to quickly colour in Nessie and the hat.
