Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier
Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today. When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies. I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.
I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap. For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.
For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little. The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.
I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock. I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set. Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.
After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment. Then my card was complete!
Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
