this fabulous tutorial. To create this outdoor scene I used the new Always an Adventure stamp set and coordinating Outdoor Adventure Framelits. Both are available together in a bundle at a 10% discount in the new catty. They are SO much fun!! I actually had originally conceived this as a Father's Day card, but then realized that the class I was designing for was AFTER Father's Day...doh! It still totally works as a birthday card for an outdoors-lover. Here is the low-down on how I did each side.
The little bear is stamped in Basic Black ink and die cut. The sentiment banner is stamped using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (this is one set that is going to see TONS of use in my studio!) using Emerald Envy ink. I added a bit of Linen Thread to highlight the sentiment.
The third panel once again began with a Soft Sky triangle and an Emerald Envy triangle. I die-cut the trees once from the Emerald Envy triangle and then again from a piece of scrap. I adhered the one cut from scrap behind the triangle-based one, offsetting them slightly, and then adhered both to the Soft Sky triangle. The sign post is stamped in Early Espresso ink and die cut using the Outdoor Adventure framelits. The clouds are done in the same manner as for the previous panel.
On the inside, I adhered two Whisper White triangles. On one I stamped the lake image from the Always and Adventure set using Pacific Point ink. I added the sentiment from the Bear Hugs set stamped in Basic Black ink. On the other panel I added a couple more stamped and die-cut trees. The pyramid card base is constructed from Kraft card stock and measures 4-1/4" x 5-3/4" when folded flat. Perfect to fit in our medium envelopes!
I can't wait to teach my class guests how to create this fun card!!
