HUMOROUS CARD CHALLENGE
For this stamp set, I chose to make a tri-fold card. I cut a 12 x 12" sheet of cs at 5 1/2" and scored it at 4" and 8" so that it would fit in a standard size envelope.
The birdie image was stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine Smokey Gray and painted with Distress Inks and my Niji brush. I stamped another bird, colored it, cut it out, and attached it with glue dots over the first one to make it pop. After mounting the image to the black square with foam tape, I glued it to the card front and added the saying below.
For the inside flap, I stamped the cat on a scrap of cs and used colored pencils for the image. Then I simply glued it to the flap.
This card will be entered HERE in the Simon Says Stamp challenge on
their blog where I hope to win the $50 gift certificate!
PS: After posting the card, I realized I didn't need to make it a tri-fold; so I cut it apart and remounted two of the panels on Very Vanilla cs. That leaves me with the extra panel for the front of another card later on.
