Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo Birthday Card

Good Morning! Here’s a simple birthday card using the cute raccoon from the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Emboss a panel of Pool Party card stock with the large polka dots from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. These embossing folders can only be found in the Online Store, so don’t worry about not finding them in the new catalog. Adhere the embossed panel to the front of a Pool Party card base with liquid glue.

Cut a fishtail banner in the bottom of a strip of Zoo Crew designer series paper with paper snips and color the flowers and leaves with Stampin’ Blends – light Petal Pink for the flower petals, light Lemon Lolly for the flower centers and light Granny Apple Green for the leaves. With a blending brush, apply Pool Party ink to the background and adhere it to the card front with liquid glue. Cut the small banner from the Nested Essentials dies from Petal Pink and adhere it with liquid glue. Cut the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo dies from Lemon Lolly and adhere it to the small banner. Make a bow from black and white Gingham ribbon and adhere it to the card with a glue dot.

Stamp the cute raccoon and balloons from the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. Color the raccoon with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends and the balloons with dark Pool Party, dark Lemon Lime Twist, dark Lemon Lolly and dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the sentiment on Basic White using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut out the circle with the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the circle to the card with liquid glue and pop the raccoon and balloons on the card with dimensionals. Finish with three small black dots.

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. Stamp the confetti in Memento Tuxedo Black and color it with Lemon Lime Twist, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends. Color a strip of Zoo Crew DSP like the front banner and adhere it to the panel before adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The little critters from the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zoo bundle are so cute and perfect for birthdays.
