I think I said this before, but I love the Zany Zebras stamp set. I can picture my granddaughter and I stamping away together. I'm going to have to take it with me the next time I see her. I have a zebra card for you using our new In Color Magenta Madness. Let me tell you it is bright pink! Sagan loves pink!
This is an easy card to make. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored, and folded at 4 1/4. Use a Bone Folder to burnish.
Set up the Happy Birthday stamp, or any stamp, on the Stamparatus. Make sure that the stamp is between the hinges on the plastic plate. Simply ink and stamp. Lift off plate and place it down a hinge. Ink and stamp. Continue until you've gone down the right side of the card base. I used Memento Black ink.
The Magenta Madness dotted paper is from the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Cut it to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 and adhere down the left side of the card base. Run a length of the Magenta Madness Ribbon around the card. Start behind where the oval will go, run all the way around and end at the same place. I just used regular scotch tape it hold it. Tie a bow with the ribbon and set aside to add later.
Stamp the zebra in Memento Black on a piece of Whisper White. Use the Stitched Shapes dies to cut out the oval. Use the largest one. Now cut out the coordinating scallop die with the magenta card stock. Glue the two together. Add to the card with dimensionals.
Stamp the birthday sentiment on white scrap paper. Punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Glue to the bottom of the oval.
Now let me point out that any sayings would work for this card. It does not have to be for a birthday. I'll have to make it again with a different saying for Sagan since she has an April birthday. I won't know where to find it by then. Of course maybe we could celebrate her half birthday since we couldn't celebrate the real one very well!
Add the bow with a glue dot.
Add a few of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.
Inside, stamp another zebra. Be sure to add a shadow. The shadow on the front was actually hidden by the label. The saying is from the Zany Zebras stamp set.
There you have it, easy as pie.
I'm going to practice my Facebook Live today at 11:00 am ET by making this card. It will be on my Business Page. I hope you can join me. Please like my page while you are there. Thanks in advance. I'll share it here when I get it all figured out.
Thanks so much for joining me. Have a wonderful day and go stamp something!
