Welcome to the Jungle Card with Cheery Lynn

Standard

Welcome to The Jungle Greeting Card 1

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I’m dropping in to share a walk on the wild side.  I love this card with it’s warm colors and layering.

I cut a 6 1/2 x 5 inch card base from black cardstock then layered on several sizes of the Rectangle Stitch and Cut Die  in different patterns and stacked them up with black borders. I’ve also tucked in a Swedish Spring Oval Frame cut from the same black cardstock.

I was able to add texture with the Gauze Border cut from straw colored paper.  These flowers are not “tropical” like the bird…but I think they look fabby when cut from the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure papers…..they match perfectly. I’m using the Tea Rose Medium and Small Gardenia over the Fanciful Flourish Left.

I swapped out the center pieces from the Tea Rose for bisque  colored pearl gems. To work in a bit of extra pattern there’s a few Horizon Fishtail Banners tucked in.

These strong paper patterns really needed a bold ribbon choice so I added a half of a loopy bow of black with white dots.  Along with the die cut leaves I fussy cut a few leaves from the patterned paper and gave them a bit of a bendy shape and tucked them in with the flowers to fill in the arrangement. A few added bits like the large clip  and metal eylet are great finishing touches.
