#Papernest dolls Koalas | By Laura GDT

by - 5/06/2019

Hi everyone! It's Laura Volpes, from A bit of my crafts, and today I am really excited to be guest designing here on the Swedish House Crafts Blog! For the occasion I created a clean and simple birthday card using the adorable Koalas by Paper Nest Dolls!

I started by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured them with Copic markers and fussy cut them with my precision scissors. 

For the card base I die cut some smooth white card stock with a stitched rectangle die and then created an opening with a circular die. I created the leafy pattern by blending Distress Ink in Bundled Sage over a stencil. I used the same colour of Distress Ink to add shading to my sentiment banner.  

I then created a cloudy sky that I glued behind the circle window on my card front. For that I used my blending brushes, a cloud stencil and Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. 

I glued everything to a top-folding A2 (USA) card base, and that finished off my card. 
And that's it for today! A big thank you to Suha for having me as a guest designer on the Swedish House Crafts blog and to you all for stopping by!
