Kuddly Koala

Even though Koalas are wild animals, they look so cute and cuddly. That is why I made this card for Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge of cards with animals.
Kraft cardbase, SU designer papers. The stamp from SU looks like this
I masked off the thinking of then stamped it in Chocolate brown on white cardstock. Then added  happy and for from the Crazy About You set. To make the card more gender neutral, I wanted to use a balloon in place of the flower. If you do not have a balloon die, use a 1" circle punch, cut a tiny triangle and glue it to the base of the circle. I added a twine bow.
Here is another card where I stamped the koala and fussy cut him and perched him on top of hugs, a stamp from Hero Arts.
When I fussy cut the koala, I cut off the flower and string so used black scrapper's floss to make a string for the balloon.
Oh, yeah, I also was chosen as a top 3 pick last week at SAS4K with this card. Thanks DT.

  2. These cards are awesome, Donna! I love that little Koala bear image and the way you added the balloon instead of a flower to make it more neutral. I hope you are blessed many times over for your kindness in making and donating these cards!!!
