Gus Is Over The Hill!
Happy Thursday, everyone!
Are you ready for Oldie But Goodie Thursday, at Catch The Bug?! The DT has some fabulous creations to show you today, so be sure to head over and check them out!
For my card, today, I brought Gus out to play! This image is Gus Birthday - Over The Hill, by Bugaboo Stamps. I really had fun with this one, and Gus is one of my favorite fellas! He's colored with Promarkers. My card layout follows the Sketch at Sketches By Carly. This was my first time making a card with a pocket on it, and I really like how it turned out. I bought these new little kraft bags/pockets with white cardstock inserts, at Hobby Lobby, and used one on the card. All papers are from my stash. The brown card base is embossed with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. I also embossed the green panel with circles, with another Cuttlebug folder. I found these cute birthday buttons in my button stash and thought they'd make fun embellishments. I cut the shanks off to make them lay flat. The papers and ribbon are all from my stash. The green "Birthday" button is attached to the pocket/bag insert with foam mounting tape, so that the button can be used to slide the insert out, for a handwritten message.
