Friends of the Forest All Occasion Card by Secrets To Stamping

 
Hi, crafters! Are you ready to start the alphabet again? Alphabet Challenge begins at “A” again and our theme is “Animal Antics.” I couldn’t wait to make a card with the Friends of the Forest stamp set (unfortunately, it’s retiring and still available!) I had lots of fun making this card, pairing it with the New Horizons patterned paper (also retiring and still available).

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of April 21st!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this square card was easily created with thick white cardstock, cut at 5-1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2.”
  • After that, I chose the two patterned papers that would make the background scene, then cut the grassy one with the die from Inspired Canopy die collection. Then, I adhered them together, cut them down to 5″ square, and layered them onto Misty Moonlight cardstock (5-1/8″).

Now, the FUN Part!

  • With the large card front, it just made sense to stamp, color and fussy cut two of the trees. Didn’t they turn out cute?
  • After that, I stamped all of the critters and the tree stump, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends (colors listed below). Once that was done, I punched out the deer and fussy cut the bunny, birdie and tree stump. I thought the tree stump was a cute thing for the deer to be jumping over so they are popped up with dimensionals.
  • Finally, I realized that I needed a sentiment and wanted it to be for any occasion. So, I stamped the sentiment from Special Moments (it was available during Sale-A-Bration), punched it out with a 1″ circle punch and and layered it onto a 1-18″ scalloped circle punch.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
