Share the love with this Animal Expedition thank you card! This precious kangaroo sends big time thanks that will surely bring a smile! This is one of 5 cards I CASED (Copy And Share Everything) from this Hello Card found on Pinterest. See how you can change the paper, sentiment, embellishments, or orientation to create a totally different look from one card on my August Stamp Club Video Here. There are 2 parts to the video – part 1 shows all the cards and PART 2 Here shows how to make them. The CASE blog post can be found HERE.
The new Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up is the star of this card. I used two coordinating papers to cover a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ Whisper White Card Base. The top section measures 5″ x 1 3/4″ using the animal print pattern and the bottom section measures 5″ x 2 1/2″ using the gray small print paper design. Adhere a 1″ x 5 1/2″ strip of coral patterned paper between the two sections and top it with a length of Granny Apple Green ribbon. Punch a small hole on the end of the ribbon and thread linen thread through it to encircle the card front, then tie it in a bow as shown. Cut the large square with the Stitched Shape Framelits using the Big Shot and Granny Apple Green cardstock. Fussy cut a kangaroo out of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.
Put It All Together
Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with gray ink and punch out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. Cut out a 1 1/2″ circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits in Calypso Coral cardstock. Attach the green square to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add dimension. Next adhere the sentiment to the Calypso Coral stitched circle with tape runner, then to the green square. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the kangaroo to the green square as shown. Finally, embellish the card with 2 wooden buttons topped with gold metallic pearls. The Animal Expedition paper has other animals that could be used including a sloth, giraffe, and rhino. They are too cute and would work perfectly on this Animal Expedition thank you card.
