A wolf greeting card might be an unusual choice but when you have dies as gorgeous as these you just have to try one! And it’s perfect to send to that “lone wolf” friend of yours who could use a little love!
The Slimline Frame and Card Base
- Cut the card base and the 3.00″ x 8.00″ scene layer using white cardstock.
- Use white cardstock to cut the largest slimline layer.
- Place the layer on the cutting platform, line up the second sized slimline die and run through the machine.
- Note: There are two ways you can create this evenly cut frame.
- Place the slimline layer on the magnetic platform, line up the smaller die and run through the machine.
- If you don’t have a magnetic platform for your machine you can easily secure the die in place with a piece of masking tape and run through the machine.
- Apply light blue ink to the sky area of the background layer using a blender brush.
The Pine Tree Layers and Frame
- Cut two 3.00″ x 8.00″ strips of green cardstock.
- Create a full continuous strip of pine trees by placing the first green strip on the cutting platform and line the Pine Tree Forest die right up to the end edge and cut.
- Line up the Pine Tree Forest die right to the end of the first cut and run through the machine a second time.
- Repeat these steps to create a second layer of trees.
- Color the tree trunks using a dark brown marker.
- Apply double stick tape to the bottom ground section of the back layer of trees and tiny pieces of mounting tape to the top sections of the trees. and attach it to the sky scene base.
- Attach the front layer of trees to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and small pieces to the back of the trees and attach to the scene base.
- Attach the framed scene to a 3.25″ x 8.25″ aqua layer using ATG adhesive and then attach them to the white card base using ATG adhesive.
The Wolves and Birds
- Cut the wolves using white cardstock and the birds using red cardstock.
- Use a black marker to color the bird beaks.
- Use mini applicators to apply shades of brown and gray ink to the bodies of the wolves.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the wolves and attach them to the scene.
- Finish by applying tiny pieces of mounting tape to the birds and attach them to the scene.
Does this tempt you to create a wolf greeting card? I think it is a perfect masculine card for anyone who loves nature and animals. I love making wildlife nature cards, especially for winter themes.
