Leaf an Impression

Did you know koalas sleep 18 to 22 hours a day!  Their diet consisting primarily of eucalyptus leaves is very fibrous and requires a lot of effort to digest, so they sleep.  WOW, up to 22 hours!  They even smell like eucalyptus; they are so adorable.

My card today uses the koala from Ellen Hutson’s, United we Flourish stamp and die set called G’day Mate by Avery Elle. I’ve also used some leaves I had in my completed stash pile (but not used yet) from the Altenew Adore you stamp set  I’ve create this card to submit to the following challenges:

My card is built directly on a top folding card base.  I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Strip and placed it on the front of my card and ran it through my Big Shot keeping the stitching to just the front of the card.  I already had a bunch of images from the G’day mate stamp set stamped and die cut in my stash, so I just needed to color the koala and tree.  I used my Altenew Artist markers and love how the colors turned out.  Again from my stash, I already had some leaves colored and ready to go so I added them to the design as well.  My sentiment comes from the G’day set and I stamped it in brown so it would be positioned under part of the tree branch.  I adhered a leaf behind the koala and then adhered these two directly to the card on the stitched strip I had created.  I added one more leaf to the front of the koala and tree and I was done.  Quick, simple and cute.  I hope this idea ‘Leaf’s an impression’ on you and that you’ll be inspired to create.  Thanks for stopping by.
