Humorous Card for #FF0025

humorous card

What better way to start off a new year of challenges than with a touch of humor!  After all, laughter is the best medicine, so the saying goes.  I have a friend and fellow stamper who is undergoing major surgery, with six months of recovery time facing her.  I thought this humorous card, which also features stitching, would be a day brightener.  What do you think? Enjoy!

Isn’t this little fella cute? I snipped him from a sheet of Stampin’ Up!’s Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.   The rectangles were die cut in a snap,  using the new Rectangle Stitched framelits, available in the Occasions Catalog.  (If you need a paper copy,  just let me know.) I hope you enjoy today’s humorous card.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is all about the layers!  Layering has never been easier because of the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

Sometimes the neatest images are found in the patterns of the designer papers, and so it is with this adorable sloth.

The sloth was snipped out and “popped” up on dimensionals.  Inked in Berry Burst,  the sentiment (from Hanging Garden) was accented with snipped out leaves and a cheery little bird.  A single rhinestone adds just the perfect touch of sparkle.

Hopefully this humorous card will brighten up my friend’s day.  What do you think?

  1. Cute card. Your layering sets the perfect stage for your focal point and I’m sure will bring a smile to your friend.
    I love your sparkly tutorial button and the tutorials on a separate sheet to save off! Thanks for sharing so freely with us!

  2. I have used this sloth and saying to send encouragement cards to my daughter who is paralyzed and in a wheel chair since late July. She liked it, and the bit of humor helped too.

  3. Cute for sure. Love the way you quadrupled the framing and changed the colors for emphasis. You are so clever! Happy Friday.

  4. Awwww, soooo cute , love the colors you choose MsAnn,
    Hugs Frenchie ♥️
