Sending Big Hugs Card
I just love how it looks like the elephants are hugging with their trunks and sending BIG hugs!
To begin, I ink-blended an A2 panel of Bristol cardstock with Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I splattered a bit of watered-down Peacock Feathers ink onto the background for some interest and set aside to dry. Next, I created a frame by cutting a piece of paper from Perfectly Plaid Remix using the largest Outside in Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I removed the rectangle and cut the paper evenly all around to create a stitched frame. Then I attached it to the inked background using foam tape.
I then cut the Giant Sending Big Hugs sentiment from White cardstock three times. I stacked the layers together, and attached it to my card. Lastly, I arranged the images onto my card, attaching with them foam tape for dimension.
All the critters have joined the party on this fun slimline card! To create this fun birthday scene, I cut a Scalloped Slimline with Hearts: Portrait panel from from Bristol cardstock. I taped off the edges before ink blending with Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, and Worn Lipstick oxide ink. I splattered the inked background with watered down Worn Lipstick ink; then repeated this with Peacock Feathers to create some nice interest to my background before removing the taped edges.
First, I cut a rectangle measuring approximately 2” by 3 ¼”from the reverse side of Gold Rush cardstock. And I also a strip measuring a touch less than ½” by 3 ½”. I cut the window of the Jeep using the second to smallest Stitched Square Frame. And then lightly inked the edges of all the pieces with Pizza Crust Ink.
These pieces were assembled as shown in the photo below.
Next, attach the fireplace piece onto the front of the jeep; cut off the excess, then attach the bumper on top of it. Then, I cut the thin Gold Rush handle into 3 pieces and attached them behind the top of the frame. I overlapped the two Narwhal handles to create a longer piece. Then I attached it across the top of the three pieces to create the bar for the Jeep’s lights. (See next picture).
I cut 5 circles from black licorice cardstock using Owen’s ABCs Dies. Then I cut 5 smaller circles from Sticky Note cardstock using the bubble die from Bubbles of Joy. I layered them together to create the lights for the Jeep. I attached 3 of them onto the light bar, and the other two onto the Jeep as the headlights.
Next, cut 5 black handles from the Magic Picture Changer Oven Add-On. I cut the top and bottom off of each handle and pieced them together to create the grill of the Jeep. The steering wheel is cut from black licorice cardstock using the window from the Mushroom House.
To make the Jeep’s tires, I cut 2 pull tabs from the Magic Picture Changer using black licorice cardstock. I cut along the score line, discarding the side with the arrow cut out, and attached to the Jeep.
Now that your Safari Jeep is completed, we can finish up the card. I put some cute critters in the Jeep before attaching it to my card.
I arranged all the stamped images onto my card, attaching some with foam tape for dimension. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Wild For You with Jet Black Ink and attached my card front to a white A6 card base to complete my card.
