Be Brave Card by Katelyn

Hey Wild Whisper Fans, Katelyn here! I'm thrilled to be back on the blog today sharing my Be Brave Card is perfect for a friend or loved one going through a tough time and you can add an uplifting note in the inside of the card . To create my card, you'll need the Child at Heart Collection. Grab a cup of your favourite winter beverage and learn how to recreate my card at home.
To start, die cut a 1" diagonal stitched fishtail out of white cardstock. Die cut a 3/4" diagonal stitched fishtail out of a piece of patterned paper from the Child at Heart Collection. Cut the 1" fishtail down to 4 1/2". Cut the 3/4" fishtail down to 4". Distress the edges of both fishtails. Ink the edges of the fishtails using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From one of the patterned papers from the Child at Heart Collection, choose one of the border strips. Cut the border strip down to 4 1/2". Ink the edges of the border strip using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Child at Heart collection and die cut a 3 1/2" Stitched Rectangle out of it. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Child at Heart collection and die cut a 4" Stitched Rectangle out of it. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the cut apart paper, fussy cut the Be Brave Bear out of the paper. Ink the edges of the bear using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the Child at Heart Ephemera Pack, you'll need three arrows, two remote controls, the large rainbow and lined circle. Fussy cut around the three arrows and two remote controls. From the Child at Heart Card pack, you'll need a grey card. Cut the card down to 3 3/4" x 5". Distress the edges of the card, lined circle, large rainbow and two remote controls.

Adhere the 3 1/2" rectangle to the 3 3/4" rectangle. Foam square the 3 3/4" rectangle to the 4" rectangle. 
Adhere the border strip to the left hand side of the white fishtail. Adhere the patterned paper fishtail 1/2" from the left of the white fishtail. Adhere the large rainbow to the left of the patterned paper fishtail. Adhere the one remote control to the top right side of the rainbow.
