A little wild

As you may have been aware, it rained incessantly yesterday, 
so we decided that the game of golf that was planned for 9:00 a.m. was a no go!
Similarly, as it was still raining, the second game that was planned for 5:00 p.m.
was also given up as a bad job.
This meant that I actually had time to play with one of my new acquisitions-
The stamp set "A Little Wild" and the Little Loves Framelits Dies
which can be bought as a bundle at a 10% Discount!!

I had quite a few aperture cards stashed away in a box, and when I saw the stamps
I knew straight away what I was going to do with them.
But I had to do a little tweaking!!

This card had a square aperture on the centrefold panel,
I cut the circle out of the Right hand side panel, painted the grass at the bottom,
 then cut a further circle out of a square piece of White card 
to sit between the two panels.
Using an Aqua-painter and Ink pad, I painted the sky and the grass
in Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky on the White square with the circle cut out.
  This was then stuck  to the back of the Right hand panel.
I then cut a square of Window Sheet (acetate) and  stuck this
between the front and RHS panels, then stuck the front panel to the RHS panel.
Hope you can follow this!!
I stamped the elephant (both the front and back are on a single stamp, 
so you can die cut and then fold them into a tag), 
cut between the front and back images,
then stuck the elephant front to the acetate on the front panel, 
and the elephants rear on the reverse side.
(You might be able to understand better if you just look at the photos above)
Or maybe you might like a tutorial?
If so just ask, and I'll add it to my things to do list!!

The final touches were the two die cut ferns at either side,
the greeting on the inside -sentiment is from "Birthday Delivery" stamp set
and the name at the bottom!!
Et voila!!
I love it!!
