Dig It

I made this card for the current Cardz for Guys 'Dig it' challenge using a pre-coloured topper that had been a magazine freebie.  I'm also entering the Crafty Friends 'In the Garden' challenge and the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.


Card blank: 7" x 5" kraft card
Image: 'Hugs with Henry' pre-coloured topper (magazine freebie)
Stamp: Birthday Wishes (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Card: Kraft 
Paper: Jennifer Ellory 'Floral Papers' (magazine freebie), 'Hugs with Henry' papers (magazine freebie)

I covered the front of the card blank with green paper, leaving a small border around the edge.  A strip of orange spot paper was then attached down the left side.  I trimmed the image, layered it onto kraft card and attached it.  The sentiment was stamped onto the reverse side of the same sheet of paper as the image so it was the same white (I find there are so many different whites that I try and use the same paper for sentiments as the main image).  The sentiment was trimmed and layered onto kraft card before being attached to the card front with Pinflair glue.

Very sweet - and what a neat trick for getting the same shade of white, something I often have trouble with. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

Your card looks great and love how you managed to use so many freebies. I love picking up magazines when I am in the UK...we don't get those lovely freebies here!
