This little guy is just too stinkin’ cute! A friend of mine asked me to make her a card for her son, who is in 3rd grade, and was going through a difficult time. I immediately thought of this Otter cuz you just can’t be sad when you see his little face! I added a few other touches, such as the embossed background, but otherwise kept it pretty straight forward. I hope he likes it!

Project Instructions

3. Using the 3 1-3/4” squares of Basic White cardstock, stamp the otter image in different directions using Black Memento ink.

4. Color in the otters using the Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil; use the Black Watercolor Pencil to darken his nose.

5. Adhere the 3 stamped squares of Basic White Cardstock onto the 1/8” large pieces of Basic Black cardstock.    Adhere these 3 pieces onto the base card as shown on the picture.

6. Using the 3/4” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using Black Memento ink.  Adhere to the Basic Black rectangle and then adhere to base card to finish.
