G'day Mate Koala Card

G'day!!! It's Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. This week the theme is World Wildlife and I've used a Koala native to Australia for my inspirational card. Although I've never been to Australia or anywhere outside of the United States, I do think these marsupials are just adorable.

To create this G'day Mate Koala Card I used an image from a set called Aussie Critters by Doodle Pantry and it comes with several images, sentiments and digital papers. The wooden center panel was made using Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and ink and stamped using the Hardwood stamp by Stampin' Up! Then I used my deckle scissors by Fiskars to distress the edges and layered it onto a Smoky Slate piece of cardstock. Next, I added the green paper strip and wrapped the twine three times and adhered entire panel to a black card base. I cut three leaf accents using the Bird Builder punch and Garden Green cardstock and positioned them around the image. The last step was adding the sentiment. That's it!

The next step is for you to find your favorite wild critter stamp and make a card to share with us at Cardz 4 Guyz. Just remember it has to be a masculine design. We would love for you to join us! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This card is entered into the Cards in Envy: Hey Dude! challenge.
