Go Wild! - It's your Birthday!



 Hi Friends! Cathy here today from "Inkredible Adventures"sharing a fun birthday card using the Party Animals and Go Wild! clear stamp sets. These are two of my favorites and they just never get old!

For the background of this card, I've die-cut an animal print cover plate die from Momenta out of black cardstock and glued it to the card base. I then cut a 3" x 4" piece of white cardstock and inked it with Old Paper distress ink. I die-cut the top edge of the cardstock piece with a stitched rolling hills die and glued it to the bottom of the card front.

For a little African savanna scene, I die-cut a circle from white cardstock and inked the top portion with Ripe Persimmon and Scattered Straw distress ink. I die-cut the circle again from black cardstock and used a safari skyline die from Club La-La Land Crafts across the center of the die-cut circle and then glued the circle die-cuts together.

I colored all of the critters and the jeep with Copics, fussy cut them out and glued them to the card front as shown. Since they're driving a little wild, I dabbed a little white gouache around the tires with a paint brush to indicate a little dust and movement.

Hope you've enjoyed and have a great crafty week!
