Into the Woods

Our August theme for the Susan K Weckesser Creative Team is all about friendships, family and love. We all have friends who are like family to us and for me, that is my friend, Sue. We met in 1987 in the ICU where I had just gotten hired.Though the miles have kept us apart for many years, she is my best friend in the whole wide world and will be for always.. She is an animal lover, lives in the beautiful countryside in Maine and I just knew I had to create a card for her with the Going Wild stamp set. I had recently seen a few cards  made  using this template and especially loved one made by a new crafty friend, Trish Magnus. So with her permission, I have created my version of this cute, cute design !!

I used a paper punch to make 3 cut-out openings in a piece of scrap wood-grain paper down the Right side.. It seems like all the members of this team have a hard time throwing their scraps away !! After coloring the owl and 2 fox images from the Going Wild stamp set, I positioned them where I wanted them in the openings, glued them down and trimmed off the excess. A scrap piece of Color Burst paper  was used as the background behind the animals. A Martha Stewart border punch was used with a piece of Live in Color paper to create the border. The line of color was made with some ArtC Modeling Paste in Teal by using the Doodle stencil by Susan K Weckesser Inc.. A bit of Recollections Hemp was wrapped around the edge of the border.. I found it at Michaels on clearance for 49 cents and the colors perfectly match the Live in Color paper !! Love it when that happens !! I mounted the design on a Kraft card base ( Kraft is my all-time favorite cardstock !! )
