Today I want to share a card that I made on Saturday. Now I posted a similar one a while back that was made by someone else. I came across it on Pinterest and wanted to share her. I also said I wanted to give her a try and then promptly forgot it. I was reminded of her a couple of days ago and really wanted to give her a try. She fits right into the whole relaxing theme I hope to have the rest of the week. Without further ado, let's get started.
The one on Pinterest had room for a saying on the front. I think I could have used a greeting if I had used smaller circles. However, I like how she takes up the front of my card. The base card for this one is Wild Wasabi cut at 4 1/4" 11", scored at 5 1/2". The only layer for this one is a piece of Whisper White measuring 4" x 5 1/4". I ran this piece through my big shot using the Modern Mosaic impression folder. I attached it to the base card using runner adhesive after the lady was attached to it.
Here is a close up of the top half of her face. Love the cucumbers don't you?
Here is a closer look at the bottom half of her face. I used the following colors of card stock:
Strawberry Slush - towel and robe
Chocolate Chip - hair
Melon Mambo - lips
Garden Green - outside rim of cucumber
Wild Wasabi - inside of cucumber
Pear Pizzazz - seeds of cucumber
Blushing Bride - face, ears and neck
Here is a list of the big shot dies and punches used for each part of her:
3 1/2" circle die for the big shot for her face - trimmed on one side to angle for chin
scallop oval from the framelits oval collection for the towel and robe - these were trimmed down to fit the card after being placed and were embossed using the fancy fan folder
1 1/4" circle for the outer rim of the cucumber
1" circle for the inside of the cucumber and for the ears
retired triple layer flower punch for the seeds - you could cut these from 1/4" circles if needed
retired small oval for the upper lip - I snipped the center out to form the lip and flattened one side
wide oval for the bottom lip cut across
retired 1 3/8" square punch for the neck
I cut the hair free handed. I also added pearls to her ears for earrings. They just seemed to fit her.
I had a lot of fun making her. I wish I was inspired to make more before I leave on vacation but I just don't seem to have it in me. I must get packing to be ready. Once my hubby is ready to get into the car and go, it is time to go. I best be prepared. I will return next week by Wednesday (before if I can) and I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and a fantastic weekend. See you later!!!
