Humor with a message!

This week’s challenge #432 over at Crazy4Challenges  is to use this phrase as inspiration:

“Skating on thin Ice”

I have a friend who is married to a man who refuses to take the advise from his doctor.  I’ll be sending her this card unsigned so she can give it to her hubby.

The Steps:

Step 1:  Using Art Impressions UMI1238 stamp on paper suitable to the color medium of your choice:

I colored her with Copic Markers.

Step 2:  Cut one door from med. brown cardstock using Elizabeth Craft Designs  1128 – CountryScapes Carolina Farmhouse Door:

Step 3:  The urn with flowers and wreath on the door were cut from this set                  1010 – CountryScapes – Backyard 2 also from Elizabeth Craft Designs:

Cut one urn, the flowers for the urn and the pieces for the wreath.  I cut all the tiny flower pcs. for the urn and wreath from pink cardstock.  The wreath itself, bow, urn leaves I cut from white cardstock and color with Copic Markers.

Step 4:  I love digital stamps because you can resize them.  For this card I chose “Caffeinated Craig” from Dr. Digi House of Stamps:

Caffinated-Craig

Print and size “Craig” to 3.25″, color and fussy cut him out.

Step 5:  I created the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with the smallest die from this set by Spellbinders “Card Creator”:

I applied, a with a light touch, PanPastel’s “black” to distress the edges.

You should now be ready to assemble the card:

Step 6:  Cut the cross pcs. out of the door window and glue the Art Impression colored stamped image behind the door as shown above.

Make base card by cutting a pc. of 12 x12″ cardstock in half.  Score one of the halves at 6″ on the long side.  Fold over.  I chose Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock Dove Gray.  I love this cardstock because it’s colored on one side only.  This is a great choice when you want to stamp a sentiment on the inside.

Step 7:  Cut a 5.75″ square of designer paper or cardstock that will look like the side of a house.  I chose this brick paper from Michaels because of the colors, but you could also use a “wood grain” look.

Adhere the door, with image behind it to the left lower side as pictured.  I curved “Craig” slightly with my thumbs.  Then I adhered him to the card as shown by gluing only his shoes to the card and putting a foam dot behind him about where the donut is.  Now add your floral pcs. and the sentiment and that’s it!

Thanks so much for having a look.  I love to make pretty cards but also find it really fun to make a funny card sometimes.  I’d love you to leave a message so I know who stopped by.  I love to read them!

  1. Now, that is one great challenge, and I’m sure your friend and her hubby will get a laugh out of this. I know that I roared when I saw it. Great card and tutorial.
