Rocking Duck

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello Portal Peeps!  Gail here today with a rockin' duck for the Rock or Pop Challenge.  We want you to include a pop up element or make a rocking card.  I love rocking cards.  These are actually really easy to make.  You can cut a circle, fold it in half and use that as your card base.  Or you can take a tent fold card base and use scissors or dies to cut the bottom edge into a curve.  Then decorate it as you like.  In this case I liked Carmen's Veranda's Duck.....
Isn't that duck just adorable!!!!
For this card I used some Studio Light journal dies to cut the bottom edge of my black card base into a curve.  Then I changed it to a yellow base!   More easter.....   I used the matching die to cut my green mat, and, just because the die was in this set, I decided to add semi-circular pocket to my project.   I stamped the green panel with green ink and two stamps from Lost Coast Designs Pieces of Calligraphy set.  I stamped the brown mat on the little pocket with brown ink and Lost Coast Designs Mini Butterfly Collage stamp.
I die cut a piece of the green card with a grass die and added a bit of promarker scribblings.  I stamped Carmen's Veranda Duck on yellow card, coloured his beak and feet and fussy cut.  This card is going to New Zealand as part of the Card Chain Challenge international card exchange.  I was going to put a tea bag in the pocket, but I think they frown on such things, so I added some paper leaves instead.  Hopefully my exchange partner will be able to use them for something crafty.
And when the leaves are taken away you can see the Happy Everything sentiment which is from Lost Coast Designs Party Words set.

I hope you take some time to check out all the fun interactive Rock and Pop cards the team are sharing this month, and don't forget to join the fun for a chance to win Lost Coast dollars.  

I made a little video for your enjoyment.  Hugz

Great idea, I bet the recipient loves it. And yes, NZ is fussy about "botanicals".
