I got a card recently that had the word THANKS made using the Large Alphabet Letters Framelits across the front. It was so cute and became the inspiration for my card today. Let me say thanks to Karen Curzon for sending me a RAK card. Here is my card.
I love this. We'll be making this card at my August classes! Begin with a card base of Crumb Cake measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The Early Espresso layer is 4 x 5 1/4. Run this through the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. I did spritz my paper with some water before running it through the Big Shot. This makes the embossing just a little deeper. Allow to dry.
Using the Large Alphabet Framelits to cut out the word HELLO. I used the animal print from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper. Cut the letters again from a piece of brown fun foam. Glue the patterned letters to the foam ones.
Stamp the giraffe in Memento Black ink. This is from the Animal Outing stamp set. I used Blends to color the giraffe: Light Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Crumb Cake. Cut out with the Animal Friends Thinlits. The alligator is cut directly from the alligator paper from Animal Expedition.
Punch three leaves using the Leaf Punch. They are in Call Me Clover.
Lay out the card so you'll know where to put the giraffe and alligator. Glue these down. Now glue down each letter. Add the leaves where you want them as you go. I glued some of the leaves and added dimensionals to others.
For the inside cut another strip of the patterned paper 1/2 x 4. Stick another Call Me Clover leaf from underneath. I wasn't sure about a sentiment so I just left it without. I love making cards. I don't really like writing in cards. That's why I usually fill up the inside.
I love how this card turned out! Thanks so much for joining me today! I do appreciate it! Follow me on Pinterest here.
