Zoofari Baby Announcement
I made this card for the a color challenge on SCS titled Certainly Celery Pretty Chocolate. I love this color combination and thought it would be perfect for a baby girl announcement. I used only Stampin' Up Products for this card. I stamped a 5.5 X 5.5 piece of Pretty in Pink CS with Certainly Celery CS and the Plaid Flannel BG stamp. I cut a Chocolate Chip BG and topped in with Certainly Celery. I used the Signo White Gel pen to make faux stitches around the edges of both and placed them close to the top of the card. I then cut off 1/2 inch of cardstock on the bottom of the card front and placed 3/4" circles layered with 1/2 " circles and 1/2" circles along the bottom of the card to form a dotted scallop border. I then backed the "scallop" with Certainly Celery CS to even up the front of the card. I layered a faux stitched 2" circle with a 1.5" circle and the scalloped circle. I stamped the Zebra from Zoofari with Chocolate chip ink and colored her stripes with a Chocolate Chip Marker. I cut her out minus her mane and tail. I unraveled Chocolate Chip
1/4" grosgrain ribbon and made her a mane and tail. I attached her to the center of the scallop circle. I stamped It's a Girl on Pretty in Pink CS and framed it with a frame from the Silver Hodgepodge kit. I attached the zebra and circles to the right hand side of the card and the silver frame to the left hand side. I attached 3 star brads above the frame. I then tied a piece of 5/8 chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon around the card above the "scallops" There you have my Certainly Celery Pretty Chocolate Chip Zoofari Baby Announcement.
