Happy Earth Day

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Earth Day Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the cute digital stamp Ellie With Flower Pot.

My Design Team Card

For those that don’t know what Earth Day is, it is an annual celebration that honours the achievements of the environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Earth's natural resources for future generations. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22.

I thought Ellie With Flower Pot was perfect for my Earth Day Card! So, I coloured her with my Copic markers. I used recycled paper including some cardboard that I repurposed. The Green Stack is 70% recycled paper. The piece behind Ellie has such words as Wonderful World, Go Green, Blue Skies, Environment, Earth, Green Trees, etc. Perfect for an Earth Day card! The cardboard was some that I had kicking around the house. I pulled it apart and kept the middle corrugated part that I tore to fit my card. I just loved using all these recycled bits for my Earth Day card!


Copic Markers:

Skin: E04/E11/E21/E00/E000/R20
Hair: Y21/Y26/YR24/E25
