Creations With Kathryn, which is also the first stop on the hop. If you want to begin at the beginning, just head back there for her amazing project!
I decided I wanted to demonstrate how you can use the same basic idea--in this case, the toucan cut from the Life Is A Beach cartridge--to make two different projects. Here is the first one, and I'll have another one tomorrow.
For this card, I cut the toucan at 1.5 inches, with all his layers. I cut the leaf at 3 inches, and backed them with a tag I cut at 4 inches. I added the lettering with a stamp, and didn't like it, so I went over it with orange Stickles. I added some white faux stitching and a googly eye on the bird...he also has some Stickles on his beak. The base of the card is a piece of lime green cardstock that I dry embossed with the Forest Branches Cuttlebug Folder. The lime dotted ribbon is from my stash.
Make sure you check out the June challenge on the page above. The prize this month is a set of four Mini-Monsters Cuttlebug Folders. I'd love to have you submit an entry to win.
From here, you should head over to Yolanda's blog to continue the hop. Until tomorrow, be Blessed!
