Love Bandit

This card is not for the weak at hand ;) It involves plenty of cutting....so, grab your stamps and scissors! This is the new Love Bandit stamp set from the Occasions Mini. I struggle with smaller images, so it's always a challenge to use them. I've seen quite a few cards with this layout, so I thought I'd start there.

All of the Patterned Papers here are from the Welcome Neighbor Paper Pad in the Sell-A-Bration Catalog. The Clouds are perfect for the sky, the Crushed Curry patterns are perfect for the sun and the Old Olive prints are perfect for the grass. The hills were blending together, so I took my scissors and cut blades of grass along the edges. Once the card was completed, I ruffled the grass edges to give them some more dimension.

The trees, tree trunk, raccoon and heart were all stamped and cut out. I then paper pieced the trees and the raccoon/heart back together. Each of these, including the sun, are popped up on dimensionals. One of my girlfriends needed a card for her young son and I think this is perfect. I hope he likes it!

TFL!
