Koala Christmas

I couldn’t put my koala die away until I had at least attempted a Christmas card with it!

(Note: I have finally worked out how to post my cards at a larger size once again, hooray!)

Firstly cut out whole koala die in dark brown card, then cut out koala only in lighter grey card. I sponged around the koala body with Coffee Archival ink then Magic Mounted him over darker counterpart.

I stamped Santa Hat onto white card, coloured it in, then cut it out. Attach to top of koala’s head.

Run a pigment ink pad around edge of circle, then emboss with gold embossing powder.

Fold backing card of dark moss green. Attach white square card onto front.

Cut a circle of white card slightly larger than koala circle. Sponge this with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. Glue into middle of card front.

Stamp Santa & kangaroos in black ink across top third of circle, masking off where needed in order to elongate design. I used a T-grid to help me line them up.

Stamp Christmas wording in black ink at bottom right. 

Glue koala circle over green one – and your card is finished!
