Today's card is for the new challenge at Here Come The Boys...starting today; the theme is "Travel"
I've made a side step card - this is the first one of these I've done. I found a good tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, but it was in that cursed Imperial (aaghh), so I've translated the template to metric, tweaking it a bit to get the size I wanted. I will put my version on my "Templates and Tutorials" page when it looks a bit tidier -as in you can read it, lol. Creative Craft Challenges has "3D" it as its challenge theme...this DEFINITELY qualifies! These things are super fun to decorate, I can see the potential to embellish them within an inch of their lives!
The background paper is from Flavia and all the tags, trims and borders are from Kaisercrafts Up and Away 6" collection, pre-cut and ready to go, what could be easier?
This fabulous image is (a digi, of course!) from The Paper Shelter...and he's called Cockatoo Rules, which of course with that 'tude he DOES! I'm Australian, so I felt a particular affinity with this Sulphur Crested Cocky...when I was first married the people over the back had one of these guys, and let me tell you they're LOUD!!! By the Cute and Girly has Things with wings as its challenge theme this time, so I'm entering there and Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has Animal Antics so, you guessed it...in there as well!
Craft Your Passion has Text It (use text) as its challenge theme, I have my little post card tag as well as my signpost, and the inside of the card is covered with text, so in I go! I cut the postcard on the inside of the card (to use as a jotting panel) from one of the sheets of paper from the Kaisercraft pad, I don't think it needed any more embellishing than that.
Well that's about it for my side steppin' Cockatoo card...hope you liked it as much as I enjoyed making it. Why don't you pop over to Here Come The Boys and check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration...and why don't you have a crack at the challenge while you're there!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card with a different kind of fold tomorrow, for my Guest spot at Karber Digital, Until then, Happy Crafting, Dee (oh, and the Galah!)
PS My card IS straight...I put it on the top of my barbecue to take this picture, because it was actually raining (yay! we're still way under average) and the barbie's undercover; the barbecue lid slopes - honest!! Dee
