Wild About You Baby Card

Several of our friends have had babies recently (all girls for some reason!), so this card is for one of the couples. The basic idea of the card was CASED from this one on SCS, and then I made just a few minor changes.

I stamped each of the animals and then punched out at least part of them with the 1 3/8" square punch. The lion was stamped first with Apricot Appeal and then stamped a second time with Pumpkin Pie and a third time with Apricot Appeal. His mane and face were then cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The elephant was also stamped a second time, and his ear was cut out and adhered with a dimensional. The three squares were also adhered to the vertical strip with dimensionals.

The rest of the card is pretty straightforward, so I'll just leave you with the supplies I used. Thanks for looking!

Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Whisper White

Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon
Tools: Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, 1 3/8" Square Punch, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Scallop Edge Punch
