It’s pirates! Koala pirates! It’s the Create a smile July Release week and today I’m sharing a card with the new set All Hands on Deck. The set features the cutest little koala pirates I’ve ever seen. I have so many adorable ideas for this set that I’ll share in the coming weekly posts, so be sure to come back for more inspiration!
There are total of 4 koalas in this set. In today’s card, I am using the one in the barrel that is looking out into the sea. Well, at least that’s how I envisioned him to be doing. Since he’s on the lookout, I pictured him at the top of the pirate ship, way up high. So I created a very soft blended cloudy background.
I cut the wooden post in the set in half and glued half of it to the bottom of the barrel and the other half above him, and set the pirate flag at the top. I kept a clean and simple design, and used a white scalloped frame for my scene. It’s as if another person is looking at him with another telescope! Inception!
To match his black and white little headband, I used a black A2 base card. In the corners, I used red striped washi tape.
I hope you love this set as much as I do! Be sure to check out all the other amazing inspiration this week from the rest of the team with all the products in this month’s release. All new products will be available on Thursday.
