WHAM! BAM! You got this!

Hello peeps!

Hope you had a good start to the week! I made this card over the weekend and I really love it!
I used my brand new Mama Elephant - Tiny Heroes stamp set for this card. I bought this set a little while ago and finally I got the chance to ink them up. I also used my brand new Paper Smooch - Super 2 die for those silhouette buildings. Some buildings were first stuck flat on the card base and then I layered a sheet of tracing paper on top to create dimension, as if these buildings were far in the distance. Then, more buildings were added on top of the tracing paper, with foam squares, which created the foreground look. Here is another photo with a slightly closer look:   
The sentiment is from the Tiny Hero stamp set. I stamped it with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it by using red coloured embossing powder. Then, I used pencil to draw some faint zig zag lines around the sentiment and use scissors to cut it out.    
I used the "die cut inlay" technique for those red arrows on both sides of the card. This arrow die was part of the Lawn Fawn - Stitched Journaling Card die set. There are so many fantastic cards that you can make by using this "die cut inlay" technique. I have linked one of the videos here but just google it, you will find lots of video tutorials. Honestly, you will love this technique. Of course, the card will not be finished without adding sequins, glitters and Glossy Accents! Hope you like this card too!
 
I am entering this card to the following challenges:
  • NBUS Challenge #4 - Mama Elephant: Tiny Heroes stamp set and Paper Smooch: Super 2 die are my never-before-used-schtuff.
Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your week.
