I decided to make a window aperture as if you could see a walrus through the port hole of a boat.
How I made this card
- Emboss a piece of Sahara Sand card stock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
- Ink over the raised embossing with Gray Granite Ink to add a little depth.
- Stamp the walrus in memento black ink and colour with Stampin’ Blends.
- Punch out the walrus with a 2″ circle punch.
- Die cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits in the double layer (with the plank embossing) for the front of the card.
- Lay in place and draw a pencil line in the circle aperture and cut a circle using the same circle die.
- Glue the double layer embossed piece to the card front, making sure you line up the apertures.
- Punch a 2″ circle punch in Silver Foil and then a 2 1/4″ circle around it to create a silver ring.
- Stick the silver ring around the aperture on the embossed planks piece.
- Stick the Walrus in place on the inside of the card so that he fits inside the aperture.
- Add silver metallic pearls or colour regular pearls with Stampin’ Blends and stick to the silver ring to mimic bolts.
- Stamp and emboss a greeting and stick in place.
- I used glossy accents to make the Walrus appear shiny/wet.
He is adorable isn’t he? I have rather fallen for this set.
