Adventure Awaits

Hi! Janja is here today with a card for all adventure travel lovers.

- CottageCutz dies: Arctic Whale & Narwhal, Snowy Mountains, Seal & Walrus Pals, Camping Phrases, Woodland Pine Trees
- white card blank: 5.5 x 5.5" (14 x 14 cm), folded
- light blue paper: 2.2 x 5.3" (5,6 x 13,5 cm)
- blue paper: 3.4 x 5.3" (8,6 x 13,5 cm)
- colored cardstock
- colored pads
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

First, start making a card by cutting out all of its elements.
I cut all my pieces out of colored cardstock. You can also use white cardstock, and color all the pieces with any color media.

For both islands I used floating ice sheets and for different conifers only their upper parts.

Use colored paper in two shades of blue for the sky and the sea.
Cut the mountains from white cardstock. Use them as a stencil to shade the sky behind the mountains. Now paste the mountains to the shaded spot.
Shade a part of the sea with a bit darker ink pad.

Paste both papers with a double-sided adhesive tape to get a 5.3 x 5.3 inches (13.5 x 13.5 cm) background.
Cut or tear off a strip from the same paper as the sea.
Paste a white "Adventure" cutout on the right.

Paste the forest to both islands and all together on the background. Paste the Arctic Whale on the back of the strip.
Finish the card by attaching the strip to the bottom edge with foam self-adhesive pads.

Have a nice day.

Super cute card! I love how you used the ice as islands by just changing the color - very creative!

This is such a great card Janja- and could be used for a variety of occasions- I am thinking for graduation, or someone moving away for a job
Love the mix of dies
