I think the Little Koala Agenda is probably my favorite agenda set…or a close tie to the Little Penguin Agenda. So I guess you can say, one for the warm seasons and one for the cold seasons! But there’s no reason to pick favorites, they are all so cute in their own way!
I stamped a color of a bunch of these adorable little critters in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them all with copic markers. What makes these koalas especially lovable and fun to play with is the way they are hanging around on branches. That gave me the idea to create little areas with foliage where it would be hanging from. The frame was created in two steps. First I die cut a piece of kraft card stock with the Woodgrain Cover CC, then I die cut it again with the Six Window Cover CC.
Next I wanted to add foliage to each frame, so I used the Wild Meadow stamp set, stamped the image and only colored portions of it. I die cut the image with the Wild Meadow CC and trimmed small sections of it that were adhered behind each window. On a separate piece of white card stock, I also used Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink to add a touch of ink blending behind each window.
I added the frame to my ink blended background with foam tape first, and then added the Little Koala Agenda images I colored thereafter. I needed a sympathy card to send to a friend and the sentiment ‘hang in there!’ from Koala Hugs was just what I wanted. I heat embossed it in white onto a turqouise card stock and trimmed it down to a tiny strip that I added to the top center of the card.
Thanks for joining me today and I hope this card brings a smile to your face!
