It’s Sunday and day two of the long weekend here in Nova Scotia. Three day weekends are great as I get a bonus day to play in my craft studio. That’s especially exciting as my latest Stampin’ Up! order was delivered last Thursday and I still have lots of goodies to explore. Meanwhile I’m having fun mixing and matching things I’ve had a bit longer. So for today’s simple Sunday project I created this card using a sloth from the Zoo Crew 12” x 12” Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.
ZOO CREW HOBBIES
I began by using my Paper Trimmer to cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Thick Basic White Card. Then with the long side at the top I used the scoring blade on my trimmer to score the card at 4-1/4″. With that done I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create an A2 card base.
Next I cut two pieces of Basic White Card, one 4″ x 5-1/4″ and the other 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. Finally after cutting a 2-3/8″ x 3-7/8″ piece of Crumb Cake Card I was ready to stamp.
For my sentiment I chose “Enjoy all the little moments” from the Easter Bunny Stamp Set. Using Crumb Cake ink I stamped the sentiment towards the bottom of the smaller Basic White Card piece. Then I mounted the layer onto the Crumb Cake Card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow).
On the larger Basic White piece I decided to stamp the floral spray from the Easter Bunny Stamp Set in the centre 1/4″ down from the top. I also stamped the same floral image in the centre of the flap on a Basic White Medium Envelope.
Now I needed my sloth which sadly isn’t one of the animals included in the Zany Zoo Stamp Set or Zany Zoo Bundle. However he does appear in the the Zoo Crew DSP pack as part of the hobby-themed page. All I had to do was cut around him and his yoga mat using Paper Snips. Then I glued him onto the small Basic White layer above the sentiment, before adding the layers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally I coloured the two stamped floral images using light and dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. Then after fixing the large Basic White layer inside the card base my simple sloth card was complete.
