Catch The Bug – Different Fold!


This weeks challenge at Catch The Bug, is to use a different fold instead of the usual on your card.  I decided to do an easel card, one of my favourites!  I used the Friday Freebie “Clyde”.  He is so adorable!  My grandson will be three in May, so I might just put this one away for him.

The image was colored with copics, and I added some clear MS glitter to his wings.  The designer papers are from the Oliver Paper Pad by Basic Grey.   I made the brick background with the same papers.  Then after I gave the whole thing a coat of modge podge glue, I wanted it to be shiny, and also make sure none of the “bricks” came off over time.  I used Tim Holtz “Peeled Paint” stickles on the number 3.  Then layered the number on card stock cut with the Spellbinders round and scalloped dies.  The border punch is by Martha Stewart.
