Graphic 45 To The Rescue with Chris

Did you ever forget a birthday of a dear friend? I did and needed something quick, easy, and nice, so I turned to my Graphic 45 The Magic of Oz Collection. My pad is 8x8. I fussy cut the scarecrow with the sign “Wanted a Brain”, aptly named for this project, don’t you think?

I used a cardstock base of 4.25 x 5.5 and layered a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inch black rectangle from my stash and a 3.75 x 5 inch green one from the Oz pad. I used my gold leaf pen to edge the green rectangle and then used ScorTape to adhere it to the card.

I wrote the sentiment on my computer and printed out on cream cardstock. The clip that is holding it was originally baby blue. I sanded it first and then, used Lettuce, Latte, and Cloudy Blue Alcohol Inks to change the color. I then edged the sentiment card with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, slipped it into the clip and used Glossy Accents to attach it. The scarecrow is popped up. I used the ASI Kool TaK Clear squares where they would show and regular pops towards the middle that you couldn’t see. Now all I need to do is write a note and the card will be in the mail.
