Koala Birthday Card

So the birthday run continues.  This time I had to make made a card for one of Jessica's little friends from childcare turning 3.  I wanted something cute.  Not Angry Birds, not Despicable Me or anything else the current range of boys.  So I decided to do some punch art. 

I've used the Koala punch art, sourced from the blog of Carolyn Bennie.  The koala is so cute and when I saw him doing a google image search, well I just fell in love!  I think I'm going to use the koala for Australian-themed Christmas cards to send overseas.  He's way too cute!

I made three little balloons from scrap pieces of blue cardstock.  I used the small oval punch and the owl punch (recognise the feet???) for the balloon and used Whisper White bakers twine for the balloon strings. 

White gel ink adds feature to the koala and the balloons.  So cute, so cute!

This card is actually a great one for using up scraps.  The birthday banner used scraps too!

So for instructions on the assembly of the koala,  head on over to Carolyn's blog.  Here's what I used:

Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Inks: Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, assorted blues, retired Nursery Necessities DSP
Accessories: Whisper White Bakers Twine, Signo White Gel Ink pen
Punches: Bird Builder, Owl Builder, Small Oval, Circle punches, Word Window & Small Scallop Circle Punch
