The Woodland Creatures Accessory Set is a fun way to add a furry, feathery, or scaly friend into any layout or card. This set can often intimidate people because of the pieces, but this allows room for creativity and versatility. To give you an example, we’ve put together more than a few handfuls of card examples to get you started, with a few tips here and there.
Check out these videos to see how simple and fun it is to create these cards!
1. Use Your Scraps
There is only one rule when it comes to card making: Use your scraps. All year long, you have scraps laying around, and for others they just throw them away. Cards AND Woodland Creatures are a great way to use those scraps and keep it paper friendly.
For the card base, you can keep it simple and cut a normal 8×11 piece of cardstock paper in half (that would be 5.5×4).
2. Build Your Woodland Creature
Because the Woodland Creatures Accessory Set is broken into pieces, it’s very versatile. Get creative! We’ve seen raccoons, lions, sheep, and even fish!
You can add personal touches to your woodland creatures by adding enamel stickers for the eyes or just your classic googly eyes (or even just draw them on). You can also add texture in other ways by using twine for whiskers, pom poms for tails, or buttons for noses. The options are endless!
Want more space to play-to-create? Pick up a 6×6 card and start having fun. You don’t always have to stay within the realm of the traditional 5.5 x4.25 card size.
