I'm creating several wild animal cards using the same simple sketch and varying the color scheme based on each animal featured. This card features a walking tiger.
CARD (5.5” wide x 4.25” tall)
Front Image: Tiger
Front Sentiment: none
Inside Sentiment: none
I created the base card from yellowed orange cardstock and layered it with a tiger print paper and black cardstock.
For the focal point of the card I stamped a tiger on white cardstock and colored it in bold tones based on pictures of tigers I pulled from the wildlife books in my library. I sponged a combination of colors around the tiger reflecting the overall card color scheme. Upon completion I matted the tiger image with yellowed orange and black cardstock and popped it from the surface of the card for added dimension.
I elected to leave the inside blank, however, I did decorate the white cardstock with a band of the tiger print and matted the panel on black cardstock.
I also created an envelope from heavy white cover stock and affixed a band of the tiger print along the left edge.
