Zoo Babies Happy Birthday Card

Today I thought that I’d give you a little break from the new Holiday Catalog items.  I needed a birthday card for my nephew so I used the Mojo Monday 302 Sketch and the Fab Friday 22 Color Challenges for inspiration.  And I pulled out the Zoo Babies, Remembering Your Birthday and Positively Chevron stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to make my card.

Zoo Babies

I started by stamping the Positively Chevron image in Basic Gray ink on a Real Red panel.  I adhered the stamped panel to a Tempting Turquoise panel, then to the Basic Gray card base with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Tempting Turquoise panel from the Brights DSP Stacks and I adhered it to a Basic Gray panel with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the panel twice and tied a bow to hold it in place.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the elephant image from the Zoo Babies stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White square and I adhered it to a Basic Gray panel, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I colored the bird image with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a Whisper White panel and punched it out with the 1″ Circle punch.  I adhered the image with SNAIL to a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch from Basic Gray card stock, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Basic Gray ink and I stamped the bird image again on a Whisper White panel.
