Welcome to the Close To My Heart 2009 World Card Making Day Blog Hop! Join me and 16 other talented CTMH Consultants as we share our fabulous card creations with you. If you’ve come from Jamia Bankhead’s blog then you’re hopping right along.
My card uses our wildly popular (no pun intended!) stamp set “It’s a Zoo” along with some “oldies” but still “goodies”–Floral Tapestry and Expedition Level 2 Paper Packets. The design is from our AMAZING new “How-To” Book Wishes (love it!). I included some rub-ons along the edge from our All-Out Adventure Collection. The monkey is cut out so that it can be hanging from the hemp and while it’s not obvious from this photo, I’ve used some 3-D squares to raise up the focal section (the Autumn Terracotta and the sentiment strip) because I just can’t handle seeing the prongs of the brads show through on the inside of my card! 🙂
Finally–the lion’s head–I’m so proud of how it turned out! I simply used one of our Perennials Dimensional Elements and stamped him on there in Autumn Terracotta, sponged his face with some Goldrush and then sponge daubed the outer edges with Autumn Terracotta to cover up the remaining white sections where his image didn’t cover. Voila, a cute 3-D lion!
If you get lost, here’s the lineup for your convenience…have fun!
