About a week ago, my daughter was invited to a friend’s birthday party. Her friend really loves horses. So I took on the challenge of making a card with a horse! I wish I had the beautiful stamp set “Horse Frontier”, but that would have been too simple! Now I have to admit that I surfed the net to get some inspiration! I combine a bunch of ideas and this is what I came up with:
Many punches were used to make this card! Can you spot them? Here’s a few: The horsehairs were made with Bird Builder (the wing) and Boho Blossom. The eyes and nostrils were made with the Owl builder, legs with Oval punch, the ears are 1/2″ circle cut in half. The head was the Owl body and nose was cut from a circle.
The backgrond was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder and I used the Core’dinations Early Espresso cardstock (you can see some of the lighter brown coming through). I cut a window using the Square Framelits collections.
