Live Your Dream

torsdag 12 juli 2012

Hello, and thanks for stopping by!
Today´s card was a fun project. I wanted to make a stair step card, but they usually not become so good, for some reason. But this I like.

I started by stamping the big stamp from Dylusions Traveling Travis. The image was colored with Copic Markers and cut out.
From the beginning I did not know if there would be a he or a she, but I decided finally it would be a he, so I fixed a little beard for him. And in his ear, I hung a chain and a safety pin to give him a punky style.

I cut the image into three parts and adhered them on the card which is made of paper from BoBunny Little Miss Lizzie.
The sentiment was made on the computer and printed directly on a post card that I cut from a Ephemeria Collections sheet. I stamped Happy Birthday to another one, and adhered them together with the other.

The fence is made on black cardstock with a Memory Box die. The clock was the last I adhered and I do not remember wherefrom I got it.

And now we arrive at the most important! My stair step cards tend to be heavy at the back and fold in all different directions, so I simply took a black ribbon around the card that holds it together a bit.
It turned out great, and the effect of the cut legs appears more.
That´s all from me today!
Hugs, Birgit
