I’m very excited to share one of the cards I made for my Guest Designer Month over at Unstampabelles. I have been asked to join them for the whole of April, so look out for a couple more posts later in the month too! The challenge this month is to incorporate an animal or bird into your design, with pastel colours as a twist. There’s even the chance to win a $15 voucher from Regal Press, so make sure you head over there with your projects – just remember no stamps allowed!
I have deliberately stuck with my favourite CAS style, choosing to have a bold sentiment, with smaller images. The sentiment is from the Silhouette Online store, but rather than cut it out, I printed it directly onto the cardbase. The letters have been filled using one of the Harper Finch Sherbet Patterns digital patterns, to ensure that it co-ordinated well with the rabbits below.
The rabbits were also part of a file from the Silhouette store (you’ll see more about the original file in the mid-way post for Unstampabelles!). I altered the file to show just the rabbits, which I then faux paper pieced with more papers from the Harper Finch Sherbet Patterns collection. I loved the detail in the pattern, and felt that it lifted the card from a children’s card to a card suitable for an adult or family. I doubled the rabbits up and stuck them together to make them a bit chunkier, then popped them up on 3D pads along the bottom of the card.
Make sure you head over to Unstampabelles to find out what the DT members have been busy creating for this challenge!
I’d like to ebter this card into the following challenges:
