Koala-ty Friend

Hello Crafty Friends!
I'm back with Team Pink, to share a quick and super easy, yet totally cute koala card!!

Supplies Used


Additional Supplies Used
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
140 lb Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers- Hickory Smoke, Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo (Ranger)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Light Blue Tulle
Light Blue Rhinestones 
Foam Tape
Light Blue Cardstock

I started by stamping my image with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto 140 lb Mixed Media Paper.

I colored my images using Tim Holtz Distress markers and blended out the color with a water brush. I sped up drying time with a heat tool and added additional shading by going back over it with more coloring.

Then die cut my image out with the matching Koalaty Friend Dies.

I made my card front by die cutting paper from the Be Brave 6x6 Paper Pad with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies

Then die cut a window from the card front with a circle the Stitched Circle Dies.

On the backside, I used my Mega Runner to apply adhesive around the window and then attached a sheet of light blue tulle to the back.

I attached  my koala to the front of the tulle window, then attached foam tape to the backside.

I cut an oval label using the Stitched Greetings Dies from white cardstock. Then stamped my sentiment using more black ink. Then used more foam tape behind the label to pop it up off the card front.

I attached blue rhinestones onto the tulle and label for a little bling.

Then attached the card front to a A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card base made from light blue cardstock.

And here is my finished card...

I hope you enjoyed my card for the day!

Happy card making Everyone!!!

  2. This is adorable! I love how he sticks up from the background paper a bit. Looks like he's high up in his tree, especially with that light blue background for the sky. Thanks for showing how you made your card.
