Just popping in with a quick post today, inspired by CASology’s cue word, Flag.
I have a couple of littlies’ birthdays coming up, and when I saw the cue word, the choice was easy.
Here is my take:
You may not be able to see it from the photo, but it’s a ‘mini’ card this week: 3″ x 4 1/4″.
This gorgeous little fox and his flag is from ‘Storybook Friends’, a retired SU stamp set on loan from a friend. I love every one of the characters in this set, and think they look so gorgeous on water-colour paper.
To create my card, I stamped the fox image onto water colour paper in Soft Suede, then used a wet brush to soften the lines and colour him in. I paper-pieced some orange-coloured paper into the flag to give it more attention. I didn’t have the patterned paper I wanted, so stamped some scrap with a dotty flower stamp in Tangerine Tango, and cut out the piece from that. The number ‘3’ is die-cut from ‘L’il Inker Designs Mixed & Stitched Numbers.
I had this whole ‘woodland creatures’ theme going on in my head, so I couldn’t resist a wood grain layer in the middle. Finally, I mounted it all onto some lovely saffron cardstock, wrapped it with a little twine, and was done!
I haven’t photographed it, but there is a gorgeous little envelope that goes with this mini card. It makes a really sweet ensemble!
Thanks for visiting!
