GDT Gingerloft - Argh!

GDT Gingerloft GL26 - this week's theme - use orange
Prize is the choice of 3 digis from the Gingerloft store.

Hi & my post today is especially for the guys at Gingerloft who have asked me to play along with them this week using the colour 'orange'. Surely the perfect colour choice for a Gingerloft challenge & what better an image to use then than that of a ginger cat. This fun feline is by Dustin Pike & is called 'Scaredy Cat', & in this instance is scared of yet another birthday - & one year closer to a BIG birthday!  LOL.  He has been coloured with Promarkers & the odd Flexmarker & mounted onto this 'popping' card shape so it will 'ping' out of the envelope. LOL. I have also done my trick with the folded acetate for even more dimension & movement - & it can still lie flat in an envelope!

The sentiment to the right hand side as you look at it is from Sentiments 4 You but I added the relevant numbers to the middle whilst the other side's message I created myself on the PC.

  5. Fabulous card Tine, the images really pop against the black and white background, and I love how you've created the matting behind them, makes it very 3D looking.
