Good Morning! Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Birthday and I made a sweet birthday card with the little giraffe from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set. This is a great stamp set for making children’s cards, new baby cards or any animal theme card – and the globe stamps coordinate with the Snow Globe scene dies and shaker dome to make shaker cards! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I stamped the little giraffe from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small Basic White panel. I positioned the small rectangle die from the Stitched with Whimsey dies on the panel around the giraffe and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine to die cut a pretty stitched frame around the giraffe.
I colored the giraffe with the So Saffron and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I positioned the giraffe panel on the So Saffron panel and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black underneath. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a So Saffron card base.
I adhered the giraffe panel to the card front on top of the sentiment using dimensionals. I finished the card by wrapping a length of black and white twine around the fold and tying a bow.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the little bird next to the sentiment and the balloons on the bottom. I colored the images with Stampin Blends – Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Night of Navy – and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
