Have a wild birthday!

Once again I have used the 'Safari Friends' stamp set from gel-a-tins, for this project I decided to make a Birthday Card. These cute little animals are perfect for creating a wildlife scene, children's finger puppets, name tags for school supplies, badges, fridge magnets and more. Below is a list for supplies and all you need to create this fun card that kids will go wild for! To purchase the 'Safari Friends' stamp set go to http://gelatinstamps.com/

HOW IT'S MADE

Cut three 8"x8" pieces of paper from the DCWV Nana's Kids Stack.
Using the decorative scissors edge each page on the right hand side
layer a different piece of ribbon under each piece and layer in a staggered pattern on top of each other

Image

Embellish the cut paper edges with the white pen. Use different designs on each layer.
On the front cover place a piece of patterned card at an angle and trim with co-ordinating ribbon.

Image

Using your gel-a-tins 'Safari Friends and a glue pad stamp and cover in white embossing powder create a background on a contrasting piece of paper.
Stamp the characters onto white card stock, colour with the Letraset Promarkers and cut out.

Image

Stick the characters on top of the heat embossed outlines with foam pads.

Image

Image

Stick the strip of characters onto co-ordinating paper and across the front of the card using the mega Runner.

Image

Apply the self adhesive lettering to the front of the card to make the greeting.

Image

Add the brass embellishments to the bottom left hand side under the character banner.

Image

Finally using the uni-ball white pen add some accents to the edges around the card to give it extra dimension.



Have a great day
