Sugar Nellie DT Post - New Furry Friends

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Well hello and good morning to you all. It's Thursday and it's Sugar Nellie time!
Yay!!!!  I get the fab job of  introducing one of the new digital stamps from the 'Furry Friends' collection - this fabby stamp is called Golf Buddy and it's available from Funkykits in digital format. How cool is this for a golfing fan or the golfer in the family. I made them both very dark and furry - but they would look equally as brilliant in a much softer colourway. 

Here's What I Did
My card is actually a tear drop shaped card as I wanted to make them appear as though they were on a hillside. To make my card base - I cut a 5" x 7" piece of strong card for the back, and then cut a 5" x 7½" piece of strong acetate for the front.  I scored ½" in from one end of the acetate which I then scored and folded over to make a flap; I added taped to the flap usually strong tape (red tape) this was stuck to the back of the piece of card. 

To decorate my card - I added blue card (sky) to my card then glued cut out hills on top of this (distressing ink was added to the edges first), I also tucked a cut out flag/post behind one of the hills. At the edge of the card I glued on a punched out border being careful not too place my tape too close to the inner edge - as this is where the acetate will be tucked into (see above picture). I coloured my 'Golf Buddy' image with Copics and cut all the pieces out, these were glued to the front of my acetate along with a hill shape to compliment the background hills. To finish off I added a few die cut clouds.

When the acetate is untucked from the border edge the card lies flat for postage.
