Lately, I have been crafting primarily in one or two colour schemes. This card, fits into my love of grey and lime green combo phase. Using some silvery grey card, I scored to make it an A5 card.
I had no embossing folder that suited the panda, so I creased lines in the vellum every .25" mark. I die cut a doily with two types of card, and with the darker board I die cut out a circle within the doily. Hence giving me a frame.
The panda is the lovely tattered lace die, and I cut him out on a few different papers and assembled him. I couldn't find paper in the right tone for the shoots and leaves, so I inked him up with some ink. ('Bamboo Leaves' coincidently!! ;) )
I had some Tim Holtz stickers that I put on a die cut from Memory Box to make up the sentiment - "Eats Shoots and Leaves". It reminds me of a book by Lynne Truss comically illustrating how commas can make a difference!!
I am entering this card in the following challenges -
Unstampabelles Challenge - #39 Be Funny with a twist of 'frame it'.
Simon Says Challenge Blo - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls challenge - Anything Goes
