Around the Corner with Animal Expedition

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale
Challenges are a great way to find inspiration, today I'm playing along at Freshly Made Sketches


I was particularly inspired by Jen Mitchells creation, so much so that I reached for Crushed Curry (so not one of my "go to" colours, here's my project:

Continuing with my personal DSP challenge for July, I used a super cute image from the Animal Expedition Designer Series paper in this card. 

The sentiment frame is stamped using the Around the Corner set - it's photopolymner, super easy to line up with the corner of your cardstock to stamp. I just couldn't resist adding the triangular edging from the Delicate Lace Edgelits

I ended up with a large area of "yellow space" - the card needed something more (could just be that I am not at ease with "yellows"), I decided to run the diagonal layer through the BigShot with the Subtle embossing folder, adding that touch of texture really made a difference!

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more projects using Designer Series paper this month - why not take advantage of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion and create with me?

  1. This is such a cute card. I love the layout and the crushed curry with the black lacey accent. The croc is so cool and I love the corner stamps used on the white. Just a lovely card.

    1. Thanks Shirlie, there is something about that croc that is too hard to resist, I just had to cut into that paper!

  2. What a fun card! I love that croc! The die cut border is fantastic! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. The black die cut is wonderful with the yellow! Terrific card! Glad you joined us at FMS!
