Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Peekaboo Birthday Card

Good Friday morning everyone.  Hope you had a successful week and are making some fun plans for the weekend ahead.

For today’s card I used the Animal Outing stamp set again.  I just can’t get enough of these adorable animals.  I made this one into a peekaboo card.  Take a look.

I started by taking the Petal Pink card base, a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and a piece of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  I layered the 3 pieces together and using the 5th Layering Circles Framelits Dies I cut through all 3 layers with my Big Shot.  I then took the Animal Expeditions DSP and using the 6th Layering Circles Framelit Die I centered it around the already cut circle and cut the larger circle with my Big Shot.  I adhered the Animal Expeditions DSP to the Balmy Blue cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue again to the card base.  On a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock I used the 6th Layering Circle Framelit Die and the 7th Layering Circle Scallop Framelit Die together and cut out the frame for the circle.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Rhino image on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored it in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the image out with the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies that coordinate with the stamp set.  The Rhino did have a bird sitting on its tusk, I cut that off using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the cupcake image from the Bella and Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cupcake in using my Highland Heather and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then fussy cut the cupcake out.  I adhered the Rhino to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I attached the cupcake to the top of the Rhino’s tusk using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I cut a couple of the branches out from the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock and attached them to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that they overlapped the circle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink about 2/3 of the way down on a Whisper White liner.  On a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the branch with the frog image from Animal Outing stamp set twice in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the giraffe from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the branches with the frog with my Crumb Cake and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the giraffe with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I then cut the images out with my Big Shot using the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.  I cut a couple more branches out in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I cut the frog off one of the branches and arranged the branches using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the giraffe using Stampin’ Dimensionals above the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White liner to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the giraffe image using Soft Suede Ink and the branch with the frog image using Tranquil Tide Ink on the front of the envelope and colored them in the same way I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition DSP to the envelope flap.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you will stop back again soon.
