Jitterbuggin Challenge: Sketch 14 — Born to Be Wild

For this week’s challenge over at Jitterbuggin, we were to follow the sketch, add a Cricut animal and use stripes somewhere on our card.  As I was looking through my Cricut cartridges to see which animal I wanted to use, I saw that on Animal Kingdom there is a bookmark cut — and I thought it might be fun making one.

I had to figure out how to follow the sketch and where I was going to put the bookmark, so I thought I’d try adding a pocket on the front of the card.  I made the card to fit a #10 envelope — the card measures about 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  The cardstock I used is a stack by DCWV called Safari Kids.  The solid cardstock is from Core’dinations.

I made the pocket from striped paper and added a flap that I tied some twine around.  I cut the bookmark at 7 1/2″ and finished both sides of  it with the tiger.  I used Zooballoo for the grass and Life is a Beach for the “Adventure” title and the leaves.  Down the sides of the pocket I added some trim made from an EK Success  punch called Chain Link.  I like it because it creates a stand-alone chain.

I lined the inside of the card with the striped paper I used on the front and on the opposite side I used a contrasting print.  I added three leaves from Life is a Beach.
