Hedgehugs

Yep…it’s Tuesday and this Tuesday it’s time for another SUO Challenge.  Our theme this time is to CASE a card from the catalog.  I chose one of of the Fox and Friends cards from page 105.

I decided to keep pretty close to the original sample.  I think maybe the card was not a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 size…maybe a little smaller so I added an extra layer.  I also switched the set to Hedgehugs.

Here’s the details…

  • Pear Pizzazz – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pear Pizzazz – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Coffee Break dsp – FIVE pieces 3/4 x 3 1/4, add to panel, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp TWO tree stumps in Soft Suede, laying down hedgehog in Crumb Cake, standing up hedgehog in Smoky Slate, cut everything out
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 2, stamp greeting in Basic Grey, cut into a banner
  • Garden Green – 5/8 x 2, cut into a banner
  • Layer everything together and add together using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
