Let’s go hiking

My youngest daughter and her fiancé celebrate their birthdays on consecutive days this month. They are both keen walkers so when I came across the Kid’s Camping set at Imagine That! Digis by Kris I knew I had to use them.

Materials used:SAM_2585(watermarked)
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Camping Kids
blending card
red, green, orange and white card
print outs of Wainwright’s walking routes in the Lake District
white A5 card blanks
Copic pens

Print out the images and greetings at the required size 2x . Colour the people with the pens. Fussy cut one of each image and selected parts from the second image to decoupage with.  Assemble the layers using gel glue and leave to dry. Trim the greetings to size.

SAM_2586(watermarked)Cover the front of the card blanks with coloured card, one red and one green to match the clothing on the people. For the girl mat the map print onto orange card and attached to the front of the card. Mat and layer the greetings onto orange and green card. For the boy attach the map print to the front of the card. Mat the greetings onto red card.

Arrange the elements onto the front of the card and when happy with the placement stick them down.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    What a couple of cuties! The images are wonderful Pippa and I love how you coloured, cut and pieced them together for your cards. I also love the fabulous map backgrounds you used. I’m sure your daughter and her fiance are going to love them!

    Cute digi designs, and how super that you found boy and girl! Especially thoughtful to make a card that goes to their particular hobby, and it’s such a wonderful layout to place the decoupage overe the trail maps. They will love this! Hope the rain & wind does not get too awful where you are, and no danger of floods. Some of my other UK pals are having some bad weather today. TFS & Hugs
