Hello & Welcome! Samantha here. Today’s card is one of those cards that once you’ve put it all together, you love it so much you’d rather frame it then give it away! Well that’s how I feel about it anyways…
Step 1: Use both the Frame It – Stitched Rectangle and Frame It – Stitched Square die as shown below to create a ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 2: Stamp the Sentiment.
Step 3: Using shades of green cardstock and pattern paper die cut several leaves from Tropical Florals and Trio of Leaves.
Step 4: Arrange the leaves on a card front measuring 12.5cm x 17.5cm. When you are happy with the placement of the leaves adhere them down. Use foam tape to adhere the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
(Optional) Add machine stitched details
Step 5: Die cut the zebra and Giraffe die – assemble these as shown, tucking them behind the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 6: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the hat and glasses from the Party Accessories die set.
Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Royal Blue and Fruscia). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Complete assembling the party accessories.
Step 7: Adhere the Party Accessories to the die cut animals. Adhere card front to a 5″ x 7″ card base. Embellish with googly eyes, sequins and a twine bow.
I love how this card came together – I think I’m going to have to buy a frame for it! The safari animals are that cute, I don’t think I could part with the card. Do you have projects that you end up just keeping for yourself?
