Designing With Numbers: Lisa’s View

I'm Late, I'm Late

Card Base:  5.5" x 4.5"
Finished Card Size: 5.5" x 9"

 When I heard that this publication was going to be about Designing With Numbers, the first thing that popped into my head was Alice In Wonderland, so I just went with it.  I was trying to maintain the look from the original Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter's hat, because it's got....NUMBERS!!

  1. Stamp the rabbit, and both sentiments with black ink, sprinkle on embossing powder, and heat.  Trim the sentiments into small rectangles, and cut out the rabbit and clock with scissors.  Set aside.
  2. Begin creating the card by having your card base at 5.5" x 4.5" as your guide.  The additonal layers of designer paper (DP) should be cut at the length of 7".  This allows for tabs that will be adhered to the card base, and the width can vary depending upon how much you wish to display of each level.  The bottom harlequin layer was dry embossed first; then Versamark Ink was rubbed over the raised portions, and embossed with black EP.  The first three layers (from the base up) are cut at 1.5" as seen in the following picture. 
  3.   Each layer is decorated according to the Alice In Wonderland theme and are  stacked by folding the DP ends to make tabs, adhering them to the card base and cutting a notch into the sides for the following layer to slide into.  This procedure is repeated all the way up to the Mad Hatter's hat.  The following picture shows how each layer is assembled together. 
  4. The Mad Hatter's hat measurements are 2" x 7".  Ribbon applied to base and a rim, drawn to fit measurements of hat's curve, inserted underneath.
  5. The Queen of Hearts is then embossed and cut to fit to liking, inside the hat. Print out the digital teapot on DP, cut out, color as desired, and place in front of the Queen of Hearts card with 3-D dots.
  6. Apply the I'm Late, I'm Late White Rabbit along with the red rose to the brim of hat and the hand written signature 10/6 label as well.
  7. White acrylic dimensional writer  was applied to the rabbit and then heat embossed to form a bubbled "puffy hair" appearance.  Portions of it were colored with markers, and glossy accents were added to the watch for a glass look.
  8. The second picture is a closeup of the hat on the top.
  9. Assemble all the pieces of the card using 3D Dots and adhesive, as shown in the first and last pictures.
  10. Interior of card is decorated using scraps that are leftover from the card front and help to embellish the birthday sentiment. 

You've created a rendition of The White Rabbit's numbered surroundings on a card and if it's prepared early....you'll never be late!  

Happy stamping...
