Hedgehog King Birthday Card

Hello everyone! I’m starting this post with a shameless plea for all you readers that enjoy reading my silly little blog to become a follower of my blog and “Like” me on my Facebook pages.

If you have not already “liked” me on Facebook, please do, because it makes me happy to see new people “like” me on my page. I also tend to post photos of my cards there first. By liking me on FB, you get to be first in on the scoop. :)

Here are some easy links. Click here to magically be transported to MissJillian Designs on Facebook where you can like me. On this page is where I post albums of all my cards, let you know what I’m up to, and display photos of other projects I’m working on. And click here to be transported to my newly created Miss Jillian Designs on Facebook. I just created this page about 2 days ago, predominantly for my blog.

And to become a follower (please do!), just look in the right-hand column on my blog and click the Google “follow” button. This link right here might work too.

Now, onto the card!

Hedgehog King birthday card

I made this card at the beginning of October for my uncle’s birthday. I hope you think it’s as cute as I do. I’ve been meaning to do a hedgehog card for a long time now. Finally it’s come to fruition

If you like it, I’ve made a second version of the card that will be available soon on my Etsy shop. It’s really only a matter of me putting together the listing. So keep an eye out, but I’ll be sure to write a post when it goes up for sale too. The second version is a “Hedgehog Queen” birthday card. It has all the same papers and colors, except the inside says “Hedgehog Queen” instead of “King.”

Here are some photos from the process of making this card. Starting from the original sketch, to finalizing the shapes, to constructing stencils of my creation.

And here’s the final product, with a view of the front and the inside. Enjoy!
