Well, it was another day to reach into my Project Life Card Collection and randomly pick a card on which to base a project.
What I chose was this 3" x 4" yellow piece with a big white oval in the center. Oh my. I was not in the least inspired with this choice. I know there are a multitude of possibilities with this format. But it just wasn't doing it for me.
After considering a few options, I finally hit on my Kind Koala set that I've never used for anything that I finished.
Awhile ago, I had stamped a bunch of the koalas and the flowers onto scraps of Designer Series Paper, and took them on a car trip so I could cut out all the fussy little pieces while in the car. Once they were all cut out, I stuck them away, never to be thought of again -- UNTIL NOW!
I excitedly sifted through all the koalas I had cut out first. Most of them were in COLORS. You know, blue, orange, green prints. Only a few were on neutral DSP. When I came upon this little cutie with the paisley design all over his face and body, I knew he was the perfect choice. I did stamp his nose once more, this time on Whisper White, and cut that out so it stood out a little more. The koala was glued in place over the full stamped image in the white oval.
I finally decided on an orange print flower to go with him. I stamped the center of the flower once more on yellow, cut that out, and glued it in place.To add a bit of dimension to the flower our Kind Koala is holding, I popped that up with a Dimensional.
The 3" x 4" yellow piece was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Adding some polka dot DSP for the background, four Candy Dots for the corners and a strip of Pool Party cotton ribbon were all the additions my little card needed.
