Inspire - I believe in you.. Wolf card challenge number 9
Hi Craft Addicts!
Well, I am nearing the end of the task but still do have 2 more cards that I have made from the Pollyanna Pickering "Moonlight" cardmaking kit from Creative Crafting World. As I mentioned in previous posts, there were two smaller toppers left and so have used my own cardstock to make this and the last one...
So, here is the ninth card - this time I have used a DL Kraft card as I thought it would be be a change from white. As I still had quite a bit of the patterned (stripey/spotty) paper left, I cut two pieces 10.5x9cm and covered both the front and back bottom half of them (well slightly less than half)* and added some of the black patterned We R Memory Keepers Washi tape to both back and front.
I then stuck the topper on to a piece of white card using Collall All Purpose Glue and cut it so there was a thin border around it. Whilst that dried, I took two Tonic Studios Trellis white and black squares (approx 9.25cm) - and slightly offset the black one on to the white one so that it gave a shadow effect. I then placed the topper on it and using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue stuck it to the front of the card (just overhanging the Washi tape).
I was looking for a sentiment to add to this card and thought this Tonic Studios Inspirations Sentiment "Inspire" went well and so glue it it at a slight angle to the bottom of the card. I also added some Vanilla pearl drops from Cosmic Shimmer to the top to add some balance and some grey pearls to each corner of the Trellis square.
Craft Creations and stamped a heart frame from Inky Doodles Take Flight set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad and the "I Believe in You" sentiment from the same set.
I used a Create and Craft tape pen to add a strip of glue to the inside of the front part of the card (nearest to the crease) and placed the insert flat in the card and closed it so that it stuck in the right place. It also means that when the card is opened it opens to the insert straight away (if that makes sense).
I also added a Tattered Lace Corner embellishment to the flap (this was in cream but it can of course be any colour....
And so that is the penultimate card finished - it is a fantastic "tribute" to the Moonlight Cardmaking Kit from Pollyanna Pickering (from Creative Crafting World) that you can make so many different cards from it. As the saying goes - you are limited only by your imagination!!
Again, 50% of the sale of this card will go to the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP) - to find out more about this beautiful rare wolf click here
