Sweet Stampin' Design Team - Green

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Here in the UK it's starting to look a lot like spring ---- not!! Actually it's typical British weather - it changes from day to day which makes it really hard to fine something suitable to wear. LOL!

Anyway, enough of my complaining its onto my Sweet Stampin' Design Team card for you this week. Our theme is' 'Green' in honour of St Patrick's Day - your card must contain green and have a stamped element on it.

I made this panorama card for my hubbie's birthday just before Christmas, and as it included quite a lot of green so it seemed an ideal opportunity to share it with you. I love making these cards as the 3D effect really brings them to life, however they're a nightmare to photograph. 


Here's What I Did
The panorama layers, 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, hills, clouds and floral border were all cut from dies. To make life a little easier I cut the fab man in the hammock (centre layer) using my Silhouette machine - however this did take some working out but thankfully it worked out beautifully (did a little bit of hand cutting in some area). The man, hammock and trees were then coloured with Copic markers and then die cut to fit the panorama shell. When fully assembled the 6" x 6" panorama contains 2 inner layers, 2 sides, frame and a front and back panel.

Here's What I Used
Digi Stamp: Sassy Cheryl 'Fathers Day Snooze'
