Our theme for the CHALLENGE is KIDS – can be images of kids, something for a kid, sentiment about kids – as long as it’s something about kids, you can enter our challenge. You have until Monday, March 12 at 11:59pm EST to complete the hop and to get your challenge entries in to STAMP-N-DOODLE blog. We’d love to see you use an image from our STAMP-N-DOODLE SHOP, but it is not required to play along.

I really loved the image the image of the wolf that Lynne has on her website, and it can be interpreted in many ways. So this week I decided to use 3 of the images on a card, and take inspiration from the wolfs nature itself, being a loyal pack animal, and making a card that young children (probably girls) can send to their best friends.

Card Recipe
Stamp n Doodle digital image – Daydreamer
Backing card – 12×12″ scalloped cream card, cut to form 6×8″ folded base
Blue ribbon from stash
backing papers magazine freebie from stash (also used to make flower)
3D butterfly sticker from stash
1) The backing papers are edged along one side with a Martha stewart punch, edged with a light beige brilliance ink to highlight. The papers are layered together with the ribbon and attached to the base card.
2)  The flower corsage is comprised of pre printed hearts and 3 prima flower layers. The centre of the flower is made by fringing a 6×1″ strip of paper, and rolling tightly (as you would a quilled strip). The roll is secured in the the last inch with double sided tape. Fan out the cut sections to look like a flower.
3) Layer up the 4 components of the flower and use a hot glue gun to secure each layer.
4) Finish the corsage with a sentiment of your choice and a 3D acetate butterfly.
5) The digital image was printed 3 times at a size of 1.25″ square. Before cutting the digi images to size centre a 1.25″ die cut frame over the image and cut around the frame.
6) Assemble the card with the digi images all on the same line at the bottom right of the card. To balance, place the flowers/heart corsage in the opposite corner, but still within the backing paper area to balance the elements of the card.
