Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme. This month the theme is Animals! We will design our cards using this theme!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Starry Sky cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Butterfly Wishes DSP was added on top of the base card.
- A 1 x 4-1/4 piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock was cut to a point at one end and added to the front.
- The 2-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Basic White has the greeting from Rhino Ready stamped with Starry Sky Ink at the top and the grass stamped along the bottom with Parakeet Party Ink, then colored with Light Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends. It was adhered to the front.
- Another clump of grass was stamped with Parakeet Party Ink on scrap Basic White, colored and cut out with the Rhino Ready Dies, then added with Stampin’ Dimensionals at the bottom.
- The rhino was stamped with Memento Black Ink on the polka dot pattern in Butterfly Wishes DSP and cut with the Rhino Ready Dies. Her horn and tail were colored with Dark Gray Granite Blends, the toenails with Calypso Coral Blends.
- The bird and party blower were stamped with Memento Black Ink on scrap Basic White, colored with Calypso Coral and Parakeet Party Blends and cut with the Dies. All were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Adhesive Backed Milky Dots were added to the background.
I just LOVE how this turned out! The polka dot rhino just makes me laugh! Make sure to check out Mary’s Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary!
