Oh my gosh... when I saw Laurie's Quirky Lizard in the new releases at Doodle Pantry I just knew I had to play!
We live in Arizona and have lots of lizards and I don't think I've seen one in our area this cute yet!
My card was a lot of fun to make and it was quick and easy too. I first printed a sheet of one of the digital papers that comes in the Doodle Pantry Quirky Lizard set and cut a sheet of white cardstock to 5 1/2" X 11". Using my Scor-Pal I put the 11" side at the top and scored at 4 1/4" and then at 8 1/2 ".
Then I went to my trusty dies. My Spellbinders Grands Labels 4 worked best for what I was thinking. I taped a Labels 4 to the end of my card that was to be the flap, before I taped it down I threaded the cardstock through the Labels 4 die so I would only cut the part I wanted and rolled it part way through my Grand Calibur and rolled it back out.
I did the same thing to a 5 1/2" wide scrap of Stampin' Up! Summer Sun cardstock and attached it to my card base. Next I cut the 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" panel of my digital pattered paper and attached it.
I brought out my Spellbinders Oval dies to see what I could use to frame my Quirky Lizard and took a few measurements so I knew how large to print my Quirky Lizard. I cut a frame using two Spellbinders Ovals dies, cut out my printed Quirky Lizard with an oval die and fastened it together with foam tape.
For a little added "something" I used the left over pieces of a Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs dies that was on the table.
Here's a peek at the inside of my card. I used two sentiments that come in the Quirky Lizard set. Be sure to stop by Doodle Pantry to see all the new digital stamp sets and all the wonderful cards our design team has made for your inspiration.
I hope you enjoyed my card making process today. If you'd like me to do a tutorial so you can see the steps let me know. I'm collecting ideas for video tutorials.
