Hi there! Bobbi Lemanski here (@BobbiHartDesign) with a silly or should I say "Weird" card using Jane's Doodles new stamp set, Weird. For this card, I got a little more modern and graphic with the habitat for this lounging sloth. I think this would be a fun card for a brother or guy friend that's just a little unique, funny and lovable. I chose more masculine, but upbeat colors for this reason.
To create this 5" X 7" card, I made the card base from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock, I started with using my circle dies and cut multiple circles in bold and tropical looking colors. I stamped this fun image from Weird and colored the sloth using Copic Markers E43, E44, E57 and E59 browns and fussy cut it out. I also die cut some tropical leaves in shades of green cardstock to create the natural habitat. Each leaf is just a little unusual and maybe even a little weird looking to match our sweet sloth!
After arranging the layered circles and die cutting a circle through them, I adhered them to my card front. I cut a matching whole right through the card front, allowing the inside of the card to show through. For the front, I arranged the sloth over the opening and added leaves. I also heat embossed in white, the saying from the stamp set on a green long leaf and attached it below the window opening on the front along with another leaf. Notice the cute little banana bunch, coconut and flower that comes with the set, too. They make cute accents for the sloth.
Inside the card, I stamped all those cute accents in the inside as well as the little circle image from the Sweater Weather set. (I needed a really tiny design to fill in some spaces.) I left room to stamp the phrases, "You do you" and "It's your birthday" inside - all in black ink. I love this look. I also love that this black and white print now shows through to the front, too. It's a nice background to the sloth and just the right amount of "quirky" to fit this very slow and unique animal. :)
