Happy Friday!! Today's challenge at Cut it Up Challenges is "Dr. Seuss-Inspired". Dr. Seuss' birthday was March 2. Make something inspired by one of his books. (Use fish, cats, elephants, etc.) Must use a die cut.
Here is what I created:
My all-time favorite book of Dr. Seuss's is "The Lorax". So I had to make this cute truffula tree card. I used blue cardstock in the A2 size and then added some torn green paper for the grass. I also embossed the grass with a flower embossing folder and inked it with a bit of green ink.
For my die-cuts, I cut the skinny tree trunks from Campin' Critters. I just modified it a bit. Originally, this cut has a bear peaking out of it and I just cut all that off so I just had the trunk. Then I took a black pen and drew the black lines on the trunk. The unless tree stump is cut from Create a Critter. Then the tops of the trees were made from wool roving I found at Hobby Lobby. They had 6 pk. of colors and I chose pink and purple and I stuck them on glubers. I tried to spiral them a little bit but I didn't want to mess with it too much and muck it up.
On the inside, I used a bit of the words from the book for the sentiment: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. No, it's not. Thanks for caring!!
Hope you have fun as much fun with this challenge as I did! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and make sure to check out the other DT creations and find out how to play along at Cut it Up Challenges!
