Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #575 Back on Your Feet

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #575.  We are using the colors Terracotta Tile, So Saffron, and Garden Green.


I've just started experimenting with the Sweet Silhouettes tree and decided to include it in my card today.   Here is my project.

I love all the beautiful designer papers that Stampin' Up! has.  Here's how to make the card.

The card base is Terracotta tile 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. 

The next layer is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  I used the checked So Saffron.  It measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

The tree from Sweet Silhouettes is cut from a Garden Green paper from the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  I used the sheet with the script, but it really doesn't matter.  Glue to the So Saffron check.  I did use part of the tree on the bottom of the card.  For this I turned my paper over to the back to cut.  I just cut a little since I didn't need the whole thing.

Add the saying from Back on Your Feet on your Stamparatus.  This will allow you to stamp more than once if needed.  Stamp directly on the paper with Terracotta Tile ink.

Stamp the giraffe from Back on Your Feet on Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  I colored the yellow areas in Light and Dark So Saffron Blends.  Since we don't have a Terracotta blend, I used the Terracotta marker from the 2019-2021 In Color Stampin' Write Markers.  Fussy cut the giraffe.  I added him to the card with dimensionals.

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp the giraffe directly on this layer and color as on the front.  Add a little branch at the bottom.  Stamp the word SIGH... in Memento Black.
