Hippest Hippos Z Fun Fold Card

I have a Z Fun Fold card for you today.  What's even more fun is that this card uses the Sale-a-Bration free items Happiest Hippos stamp set and the Hippos dies.  You can earn these with a $50 purchase.  To get them both, you would need a $100 order (each needs a $50 order).  Here's my cute card!

Hippest Hippos Z Fold Card  Awash in Beauty DSP  Hippo dies  Paper Piecing  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I love this paper with the hippos as well.  This comes from the Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper.  My little hippo is going to dance right through the flowers.  She might tiptoe through the tulips!  

The base of this card is Blushing Bride.  I don't know if you have ever noticed, but I don't use a lot of pink.  It's not my favorite.  This DSP gives me the opportunity to go pink.  Elephants like pink you know.  The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  Fold the card in the center and then fold the next section back away from the center.

Cut a piece of Blushing Bride that is 1 x 5 1/2.  Score this piece exactly the same.  You will turn it over and use it backwards from the card.

The designer paper is cut one piece at 2 x 5 3/8.  This goes on the folded back piece.  The other is cut to 2 1/4 x 5 3/8.  It goes on the inside of the card to the right.

Cut a piece of Basic White that is 1 7/8 x 5 3/8 for the rest of the inside.

For the Hippo cut the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies in white and a coordinating scalloped circle from Blushing Bride.  The scalloped circle is from the Layering Circles dies.  Adhere done stamping and coloring the hippo.  Stamp the hippo in Memento Black.  I colored here using the Gray Granite Blends combo and the Flirty Flamingo Blends combo.  I didn't go into any extra shading because more likely this card will go to a child.  

I used the paper piecing technique for the skirt.  Stamp that area on the designer paper, also from Awash in Beauty DSP.  Cut it out with snips and then glue in place.

The umbrella from the Hippo dies was cut in Basic Black and then the top of the umbrella was cut from the same designer paper.  Glue to the umbrella and glue to the white circle.  Some of this does stick out beyond the circle so be careful where you put the glue.

Cut the plants from Old Olive card stock and the flowers from Flirty Flamingo.  Hint:  I put some Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock.  Peel it off after cutting and you have stickers!  Easy!

Wonderful World DSP and STamp Set. JO Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I made a card for you using this paper.  

Wonderful World DSP Card  SAB  Stitched Rectangles dies  Foam Adhesive Sheets  Starry Sky Metallic Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I used the Thick Basic White for my base 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2. 

Run a piece of Basic White cut at 4 by 5 1/4 through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.  Not much of this piece will show through so this step could be left out.  I think it does add a little interest between the flowers.

Cut 10 flowers from the designer paper using the Stitched Rectangles dies.  Use the die that is by itself in the die set.  One of the flowers will go inside of the card.  You can use dimensionals to add the flowers to the card.  A much easier way is to use the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Cut 9 pieces that are 1 x 1 1/2 and adhere them to the back of the flowers.

Lay out the flowers on the card to see what the spacing will need to look like.  I begin with the upper left corner first and get that spacing there.  Then I go down to the bottom left corner.  Add the flower between these two always looking at the spacing.  Next go to the upper right and place that flower.  Add the flower between the two.  From there it's pretty easy to place the rest.

Tie the Starry Sky Metallic Ribbon around the card and tie into a bow.

The label is stamped using the Go To Greetings stamp set.  Stamp in Starry Sky. Cut out with the Stylish Shapes dies and glue to the card.
