Big Cat

Welcome back to this weeks new challenge on
This weeks theme is set by the Boss the very talented Wendy and it is
A Man's Card.
Our sponsors this week are Digi Doodle Shop and the prize is a $10 voucher. Good Luck.

My card this weeks is a very simple CD creation. The image is taken from the Joanna Sheen CD, Jayne Netly-Mayhew first set of CD's. It is an 8x8 card with the animal print paper covering the whole of the card and a contrasting stripe card at the bottom. The Leopard image is layered onto black and then cream card and put on the top of the card.

There is a piece of matching velvet animal print ribbon covering the join between the 2 papers. The greeting has been cut using a Spellbinders die in cream pearlescent card and happy birthday stamped and embossed in gold.


The final touch, to give a bit of an extra African feel, is a mask. I have made this using red and gold coloured Friendly Plastic and a rubber mold. I enjoy doing this but you have to wathc your fingers, it get a bit hot, but I think is is worth it. I hope you think so too.
