Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for March of 2021. I'm so glad you are going on the hop. You might have just come from Amy's blog or maybe you are starting here. Either way be sure to visit everyone on the hop. You'll get some great ideas.
Back in August we created cards with scenery. We decided to do a repeat of this for March. Stampin' Up! really does have a lot of stamps that lend themselves to scenery. I decided to use an unlikely source for the project Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. Here's my card.
My scene is underwater! My card is made entirely of cut outs from the Whale of a Time DSP.
The card base is Thick Basic White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored and folded at 4 1/4. To cover the front use one of the more solid blue papers. It's Pacific Point with some other flecks of color.
The three panels on the front are made using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. Use the sheet from the Whale of a Time that has waves. Cut the panels so that the waves appear to run across the card. Adhere with dimensionals. I wanted them to be close together with a little space. I started in the center of the card by using my Grid Paper as a guide and then added the two side panels. Tie a length of Linen Thread around the panel on the right and tie into a knot.
One of the sheets of the designer paper has large plants. I cut some of those out and pieced them around the panels on the end. This was a bit tricky but I do feel it was worth it.
From there all of the animals are cut from designer paper. I do love to fussy cut. Some were placed directly on the base of the card. Some are glued to the panels. It's important to place some that are hanging off the panels and some between the panels. You may need to add some dimensionals under the parts hanging off.
The saying here is from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set stamped in Pacific Point. Fussy cut around it.
For the inside of the card cut another panel from the Whale of a Time DSP using the Stitched Nested Labels. The saying is from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set. Cut out a few more animals and glue them.
I love how this card turned out. If you love to fussy cut, this is a project you might want to try. It will also use up some of your designer paper!
Thanks so much for joining me today. Please continue on the hop with the NC Demos. Next up is Tina. Can wait to see her project!
