This weeks challenge over at the Crazy4Challenges Blog is make a card with Orange, Black and White only because Sat. 7/29 was Tiger day on the of the days of the Year Calendar. Well, yes, the obvious is a Halloween theme, but all the Team Designer’s inspiration cards were not. So I avoided the obvious too!
This was an fun and easy card to make. It would be great to give to anyone who you would like to thank for bringing you some joy!
Step 1: I cut the black “Trees” from a die from Gina Marie Designs:
Step 2: Cut a rectangle with out of orange cardstock slightly larger than the black trees pc. above and glue the trees to the orange rectangle and cut off the excess orange cardstock from all four sides.
Step 3: Cut a rectangle from Black cardstock the measures 6 x 4.75″ and adhere your previous step to the black rectangle.
Step 4: Create a card base from white cardstock that measures 7 x 5.5″ when folded by scoring at 5.5″ on the long side. Fold the card at the score line and trim down with a paper cutter. Adhere step 3 to your card base as shown. Stamp a sentiment to the inside of the card. I chose this one: (Credit for stamp set under products used)
Step 5: Cut the Fox and Owl from white cardstock except for the silhouette piece. The silhouette piece is cut with black card stock. I colored the pieces before assembly with Copic Markers. I used Karen Burniston’s 910 – Poppy the Owl and 946 – Dutch the Fox for Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Step 6: Create the sentiment for the two speech bubbles in Word on your computer. Cut them out with the below product from Spellbinders and use a little Black PanPastel on the edges.
Step 7: Attach the completed “Fox” and “Owl” and “Speech bubbles” to the front as shown. I put them all on foam dots for dimension and put a little glue on the points of each bubble:
