For the month of March at The Male Room Craft Challenges, the focus is on projects featuring Animals. The Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set fits the bill perfectly! And I have gone a little different with my card, and used the Book Fold design, which is quite easy but a little different to a standard card.
The Wolf is stamped directly onto some of the New Horizons Designer Series Paper, along with some very soft and subtle images of the flower spikes. The strip of wood-look paper on the left is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. If you have been following along with my projects recently, you will know that I have started stamping the reverse side of the card:
And decorated the inside of the card with some strips of the same Designer Series Papers but left quite a lot of room for writing a message to the recipient.
I have left my card without a sentiment. For some reason I am feeling the need to create blank cards, cards that can be sent without a specific reason or sentiment attached, but more as a way of staying in touch.
This week the Art with Heart Team is showcasing the Stampin’ Up! colour Bermuda Bay.
For my card, I have teamed the Bermuda Bay with neutrals, Crumb Cake, White and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.
Nearly all of the elements on my card come from the In Good Taste Suite, and the inspiration for my card comes from a card on the left hand side of Page 123 of the Annual Catalogue.
The feathers have been stamped and then fussy cut, and the Bermuda Bay panel has been die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies and then embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
You can find all of the links for this Showcase on Catherine’s blog, with all of the other amazing ways to use Bermuda Bay in your projects.
