World Card Making Day 2011


It's finally here!! Its going to be a super fun day, that after a little History test and a stop at Walmart i will be card making my buns off!!! I've set this post to go live while i take the test, then its back home to check out blogs and more blogs before heading to the craft room!!

The card i have to share today, i actually made a few months ago for a coworker. Her mom was turning 50 AND going on an Alaskan cruise!! (FUN!!) So she wanted an Alaskan themed card for her mom... and boy it was a challenge! But in the end it turned out perfect as her mom loves bears!!

I layered some great tree pattern paper on brown card stock after sewing and inking the around the edge. I used the back of the same paper for a vertical strip across the card (the wood grain tree stumps).

Then i used my computer and printed out the sentiment 'Walk on the Wild side with Alaskan Treasuers' (it took me days to come up with the right sentiment !! :) ) I then split the sentiment in two and die cut each with a label die, placing the labels above and below the tree stump strip. Next i tied a brown sparkle ribbon in a bow below the pattern strip.

For the 3 animals i used a cricut cartridge for the moose and dear. But for the bear i googled a silhouette bear, printed him out then used the craft knife to cut him out. I added a gem to each animal and layered them on circles. Then adhered the circles over the pattern paper.

Happy World Making Card Day!!
