Sketch Book Chapter VIII Journey to the Southern Hemisphere : Orangutans

0 10 Comments

Today’s card has been made using ‘Sketch Book Chapter VIII Journey to the Southern Hemisphere’ from Creative Crafting World.

The images on this Cd-Rom are by Pollyanna Pickering.

I chose to use the papers and image from the Orangutan collection.

To make this card you will need :

8″ by 8″ Cream Card
A4 Chocolate Card
Sketch Book Chapter VIII Journey to the Southern Hemisphere Cd-Rom
The Paper Boutique ‘Just for You’ Die Set
The Paper Boutique ‘Daisies & Leaves’Die Collection
Wet Glue
Foam Pads


Print off an image sheet and four backing papers. The image sheet that I chose also had sentiments on.

The borders that I have used are also from backing papers (I was using up papers that I had already cut into) so if you would like to make this card as it is in the picture, you will need to print these off too.

Using chocolate card cut two pieces measuring 9 cms by 19.5 cms to form matts.

Next cut two backing papers measuring 8.5 cms by 19.5 cms. Attach these to the matts and then to the cream card base.
Lay the first one horizontal and then the next one vertical.

Add the boarders, one using foam pads on the vertical layer and one in each of the corners of the base card using wet glue.

Next using chocolate card cut out the matt layer of the ‘just for you’ die set.

Using a backing paper cut out the square doily die.

Then using a different backing paper cut out the small square die.

Cut the square image slightly so that the small square die give the image a slight border.

Using foam pads attach all these layers together and then using wet glue attach to the card base.

Add chocolate card as a matt to the sentiment leaving a small border and attach to the card base.

Next using two leaves out of the ‘daisies and leaves’ die set cut a few out of a backing paper and add to opposite corners of the image.

    I love this image, Lisa. Monkey World (Life) is one of my favourite real-life type TV programmes and this reminds me of all the wonderful Orangutans they have there. I hope to visit the park one day.
    Thank you for joining us again.

    My hubby loves orangutans he’d think this card is brilliant! As do I and I like the addition of the leaf die cuts.

    Oh what a gorgeous card Lisa, extra special to me as I lived for a while on the edge of the Borneo jungle although I was never lucky enough to see an orangutan. Thanks for another great entry at CD Sundays.
