Howdy! So excited to see you, and I have something fun to share today. I really like this card, even though it is really simple. I just can't wait any longer - so let's get right to it:
This card is to welcome a little baby to our world. I immediately thought of Lawn Fawn's Critters Down Under set, and wanted to put the mama and joey kangaroo on the card. I stamped out the critter, and the tree (over and over, to create a forest-type effect) and leaves using Memento Black Tuxedo ink on white paper. I colored these images using Copics and then fussy cut each image.
To frame the image, I decided to create a circle out of a panel from the same light brown colored cardstock and matted the circle with a darker shade of brown. I went with a scalloped circle because it just felt right, and added a little bit different texture and dimension from a plain circle.
I layered the trees on the card, and adhered the circle-cut and matted cardstock panel with popdots. I adhered the mama & joey over the trees and pulled some of the trees and leaves through the top and sides of the circle for a little more added dimension:
I layered the leaves across the bottom to anchor the kangaroos, and stamped the "welcome baby" sentiment, from the same stamp set, on a strip of paper matching the circle matting.
This was a fun card, and I like the layered trees, kinda fun!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
