I had used imaginary colors for the gorilla on my first card. This time I tried to be more realistic. I cut a number of cardstock colors, including black and a range of grays, before deciding on this combination of a light gray and dark gray. I heat-embossed a sentiment from the All My Love set and cut the red cardstock panel with an arch die. I was inspired by the way Laura Bassen added the sentiment to her adorable card. I finished the card with Lawn Fawn twine for a little color and texture.
I can’t wait to use this Gorilla on a birthday card!
