Hang In There

Inspiration

My last creation for the Heartfelt Creations blog this week is a card for someone who needs a little helping hand - just a nature-themed card with a simple sentiment of "hang in there"!

Instructions

BASE CARD

Start with a piece of light green card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5" and fold. Add 4 pieces of striped paper each measuring 1 1/2" x 4 3/4".

IMAGE MAT

Cut a piece of dark green card stock measuring 4 5/8" x 4 7/8". Adhere a double strip of ribbon with a single knot around the middle of the green mat. Add a smaller piece of lighter green patterned paper measuring 3 7/8" x 4 3/4".

IMAGE

Stamp the tree image on ivory card stock using Sepia ink. Use the masking tape to mask the tree trunks, and stamp the curly fern on the left of the trees. Stamp the open fern to the right of the tree trunks. Trim closely, including the space between the trees. Stamp another open fern and trim. Stamp the tree leaves again and cut out. Color the trees and ferns with chalks. Mount the tree on the front of the card with foam squares. Add the extra tree leaves and fern using foam squares.

SENTIMENT

Cut/emboss dark green card stock with a Fancy Tag die. Use the ink blending tool to add green ink around the edges of the tag. Stamp the sentiment in Sepia ink on ivory card stock, and trim closely. Glue the sentiment to the tag, and mount the tag onto the front of the card with foam squares.

Thanks for stopping by!
