Hi! It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.
As a child, I loved going to vacation bible school. One of my favorite Bible stories was about Noah. I loved how he built an ark to hold two of every animal to save them from a flood after forty days of rain. My card today, which I call, "Missing the Boat", is based on my recollection of the story; with a little touch of humor.
I used the Baby Animal brads as they worked perfectly with my idea. I have plans for the rest of the pack which I hope to share with you soon. Aren't they adorable?
And here's my card:
To set the scene for these cuties, I started with a rectangle of pale gray. I wanted to give it the appearance of rain, so I stamped lightly with Basic Gray Ink using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I stamped a second time with VersaMark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The panel was matted with Early Espresso card stock I used for the top layer of the ark.
To make the clouds, I used this cut file. For the land and water borders, I freehand cut one piece of green, two medium blue, and one light blue card stocks. To give the appearance of whitecaps on the water, I used white Nuvo Drops.
The ark was cut using free clip art I found here. I added some lines to resemble planks in my Silhouette design screen and cut the top layer in dark brown with a solid outline in a lighter brown. The animals fit snugly in the ark; safe and sound for the rough seas ahead. The faces of the lions work so well with the sentiment, don't you think? ;-)
This card provides lighthearted support and encouragement and lets the recipient know, "I can relate". I used the AR Cent font for both the greeting and sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today. I hope to see you again.
