Leapin' Larry - Bifold Card

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Friday!  For today's post, I was going for a fun, yet universal card that could be used as a birthday card, get well card, or possibly a thinking of you card...
 Jane 
 
This is Leapin' Larry (R145).  Such a fun and adorable image...

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I applied some Wink of Stella - Glitter Yellow brush marker to the centre of the flower and some Wink of Stella - clear glitter on Larry's spots on his body.  It's a bit difficult to see this in the picture though.

The main image was fussy cut out.  MFT dies called Stitched Ovals were used to cut the various layers of ovals using SU Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasabi Cardstock.  The designer paper is from Echo Park-Bundle of Joy 6x6 paper pad.  Foam tape was used under the oval (only on the left half of the oval), to add some dimension to the main image. I decided to leave off the sentiment for now, as I couldn't decide on what to put on.  This maybe a convenient card to have on hand for those last minute ones that are needed.  To complete this card, SU wild wasabi stitched ribbon was taped down on an angle at each corner, along with a light green flower gemstone.
