Wild Ride by Amanda

Posted by ScrapbookPal Inc on

Hello there, Amanda from Twiddler's Nook here today. I'm sharing a card that I made for my husband for our 14th wedding anniversary. The sentiments in this new Toucan Do it set were too perfect for me to pass up! Here's how I did it.
To create my card, I started with a piece of kraft cardstock. I smooshed some green ink on my glass mat and spritzed it with water. Then I smooshed my paper in the ink repeatedly, drying in between layers with a heat gun. Once that panel was dry, I ran it through the die cutter with the Hero Arts vines and leaves cover die. I placed it over a light teal panel and thought it was too plain. So I used a blending brush and green ink on the edges of the teal panel and really liked the difference it made. So, I used liquid glue and adhered them together.  
Next, I stamped and colored images from the new Lawn Fawn Toucan Do it set and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the set on black cardstock and trimmed it into two strips.
With a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares I adhered all of my images and the sentiment strips. Then I went in for finishing touches like glossy accents to the bird beaks and unicorn Stickles to the butterflies and flower centers. I also added black glaze pen to the eyes and glossy accents to the jaguar noses too. 
I'm just so happy with how this card turned out and am really excited to give it to my husband too! 
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
