Hi & hello!
Happy Friday! Today's card uses Aussie Animals and Pierced Tags from the Angels Landing collection of Digi-Stamps on the new Stampin' Up! In Color Textured cardstocks Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I must confess I wasn't thrilled with the new colors at first, but they are quickly growing on me. Melon Mambo is a confusing name as the color is not a melon at all but rather a hot pink; Bermuda Bay is this lovely vivid shade of turquoise that I just know will become a favorite.
I love this size of card - it is tall and thin, yet smaller than you normally see for this type of card (about 6x3.5). I colored the koala bear with Copic markers then adhered him with foam dots to a base of Sassafras Lass Fawnd of You Too patterned paper from the Life is Beautiful collection. The darker brown patterned paper is the reverse side of the same paper; the die cut strip is also from the same sheet.
I took a couple strips of the patterned paper and rolled them around a pencil to create a log for the koala to sit on. From the side you can see the diamond pattern of the reverse side of paper so it all ties in quite nicely together and adds a bit of whimsy to a fun card.
The "For You" tag comes with both black ink and colored inks in the set. I just printed and cut the hot pink colored tag out, adding a K&Co. crystal to cover up the hole punch circle as I am using it as a card sentiment rather than a tag.
The rectangles are die cut with Spellbinders Long Rectangles.
