Die Cutting Diva's Guest Designer for their Must Include a Flower Challenge - Scent-sational Birthday Card

Hello Crafters

(For the 5/19/15 Scrappy Moms Stamps TTC Animal Challenge click here.) 

I'm ecstatic that I get to be the Guest Designer for Die Cuttin' Diva's "Must Include a Flower Challenge" that starts today.

For this challenge I chose to use the adorable skunk from the KaDoodle Bug Designs Cutie KaToodles - Flower Skunk  file because she's surround by pretty flowers and thought it would make a scent-sational birthday card. 

I love paper piecing but with working full time I sometimes don't have time to cut and put the little pieces together, which is why I love it when KaDoodle Bug Designs files have jpgs as part of their file options.   

I pulled the KaToodle Skunk jpg into my Silhouette Studio Designer Software, trace it, crop it to remove the white area around it, and then offset it to get a little white border around the image.   Once I got that done, I printed it and then put it through my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out.    Of course my image has to have a shadow behind it to help it pop form the pattern paper behind it so I use the offset option again to create it.  

Below are pictures of the final project. 

It's an easel card :)

Of course I had to put her on an action wobble.

Pulled the top back so you could see it the skunk and sentiment together.

Close up of the sentiments I used.

Card Recipe:
  • Sentiments from Scrappy Moms Stamps Hooray for Birthdays and Furry Friends stamp sets. 
  • Image is from KaDoodle Bug Designs Cutie KaToodles - Flower Skunk  file
  • Used Gelly Roll pens to add some accents. 
  • Scallop Easel Card from the Silhouette Store Design #43211
  • Bling from my stash. 
  • Digital paper that I think but not 100% sure is from Prettygrafik.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  
I hope you enjoyed the card I made for the Die Cuttin' Diva's challenge.  You can join their challenge by clicking here
