Hi Crafty Friends,
Yesterday was Australia Day down here in Australia. I had something else I had to post on my blog yesterday, but seeing I had the cute Koala from Simon Says Stamp I thought I would create a card using it for today.
With a little bit of imagine, the Leafy Frame also from Simon Says Stamp could be gum leaves so I decided to combine the frame, the koala and the Hugs body to create my card today.
The background was created using Distress Inks in blues and then spritz using Perfect Pearls in water. I then added the body so it would be underneath the frame. I die cut an additional piece of frame using scrap paper so I could cut some extra leaves and place them in the koala's paws.
For the koala's head I adhered it to the card using an action wobble, so the head will move when you touch it.
For the inside of the card, I die cut an additional frame . I added one of the sentiments and a small koala image from Gerda Steiner's You're Koalafied Stamp set. I also added the G'day which is from Ultimate Crafts.
