Background:

To start this card I grabbed a piece of heavyweight white cardstock and cut it to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I used the Broad Strokes stencil by Heffy Doodle to ink blend some heat waves to set the scene. I used yellow and orange inks to accomplish this task.


I then cut the Tree-mendous tree die out of Kraft cardstock and used brown inks to blend a little color onto the die cuts. I mostly concentrated this ink on the sides of the tree trunk. To complete the tree I used the border die from the same set to cut some foliage for the top of the tree. I used a dark blue green cardstock. I also ink blended some of that brown ink onto this section of the tree to give it more depth. I also splattered it with brown and dark blue green ink. I like how this gives the look of leaves. Also, I love splatters.


The outside frame of our scene is the NEW Go Wild A2 Frame die set. It makes a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch jungle like frame around your card front. Perfectly sized for A2 cards. I added some dark blue ink to the outside edges of the frame to add depth and to be consistent along with the other die cuts featured on this card.


Sentiment:

Before adhering everything together I stamped the "wishing you a koality birthday" from the Koalaity Hugs stamp set directly onto the trunk of my tree. I stamped it using watermark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.



Focal image: (the Koala)

I stamped this little cutie from the Koality Hugs stamp set using alcohol marker friendly ink. I stamped it onto Heffy Doodle Alcohol Marker friendly paper. I used my alcohol markers to color him and I've listed them for you to reference if you would like to know exactly which markers where used.



Background:

I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches. I used the Wild Side stencil to create the animal print along with brown distress oxide ink. I ink blended the brown over the Kraft but I also loved black and gray on gray. Those will be backgrounds for another day.


Sentiment:

The sentiment was everything to me when I had the idea to create this card. I also love the idea of a "wild thing" card. I used the Go Wild die that comes with the frame used on the first card. I cut it from white cardstock and stacked several layers together to create my own chipboard word and exclamation point. I did not use the "go" as you can see here in the photos. I wanted it to say "born to be wild". I used the stamp from the Wild at Heart sentiment set but I cut the wild off of the stamp. I just used the "born to be". I stamped it using watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.



I used one of the circles from the Heffy Doodle Circle Frame dies to cut a circle element to live behind my sentiment. This helped me turn the sentiment into more of a focal image. I layered these pieces together onto the card panel and then attached the entire card panel to a white card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding orientation.


I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will continue hopping for more inspiration.
