Stampin’ Up! A Little Wild Birthday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Little Wild stamp set bundle to create a cute and quick birthday card to share with you today.

My card was loosely based on Freshly Made Sketches #297.

And my card also works with Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge TTTC007.  I went down the right side.

I started by adhering a panel from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bear and hive images from the A Little Wild stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on watercolor paper and I used Soft Suede and Crushed Curry inks and an Aqua Painter to add some color.  I also used Blushing Bride, Basic Gray and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers to color the bee and the bears ears.  I cut the images out with the Little Loves Framelits Dies, snipped the bear off the rest of the tag and adhered the hive with Glue Dots and the bear with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Whisper White card stock panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Window Shopping stamp set in Soft Suede ink on the Whisper White card stock panel and the bees from the A Little Wild stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink.  I colored the bees with Crushed Curry and Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Markers and then adhered the panel to a Soft Suede card stock panel with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel, tied a bow and then adhered the panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Window Shopping stamp set in Soft Suede ink and the bees from the A Little Wild stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

You can see a list of supplies, including card stock cuts, to create this card at the very bottom of this post.
