Wild About You

 Hello there my crafty friends!  This is another one of my favourite cards from the safari collection release.  I started with a piece of Arctic Blue card and embossed it with the new Pebble Rush 3D embossing folder.  Next I cut two apertures in a piece of white card using the Double Stitched Circles.  I cut two circular frames to go around the apertures.  I trimmed them even with the sides of the card, then added mounting foam to them and raised them over the apertures.  I stamped the sentiments from the Safari Tag clear stamp set then added mounting foam to the back and added it to the embossed backing piece.  Next I stamped the Zebra and the Rhino and cut them both out with the matching dies.  I trimmed away the animals from the outer frames and coloured them with Distress Markers.  I added mounting foam to the backs of the animals, then slipped them into the apertures. The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hiya Sue and all that call into this lovely happy group. I feel a caption competition calling but my first thought probably isn't appropriate lol you must have a photo of these two guys in front of you when you're colouring and shading - haven't you ? cuz it's so spot on its really lovely. Your new frames lend themselves to anything and everything and your next collection have had a brilliant review, so I'll leave it there and let Ann take over lol sending much love to all xxx

Good Morning Sue.
A great card that I would love to make for my South African Grandchildren.
I will put the stamps and dies on my wish list. I love everything about the card and I'm sure you enjoyed making it.
Have a good day

Hi Sue and everyone who calls in today. Today's card is fab, I really do love the whole launch, sometimes I wish I could just make generic cards of my choice, but now my friends know I can draw a little they give me the randomest things to put on cards. Anyways back to the fab card, I love the pebble embossing folder and think it will be going on my wish list too. Great card and lovely composition Sue, than.
Hugs to anyone who needs one today Donna xx

Scottydog said...

A great card & one of my favourites in this series. I can make half the card! Can see I will have to get the zebra too as I would love to be able to make this. Love the shading on the animals, also the embossing folder. Thank you for the inspiration Sue.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is subtle but striking at the same time, I love it. I wonder how a conversation between a rhino and a zebra would really go lol


Eunice Astle said...

CCM said...

I really like this card and the design. Sue, your coloring is great , mine... That's why I prefer dies instead of stamps. But I love the Safari collection (dies and stamps) and
I agree with Steph and Pat, your coloring of the animals is superb.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
