This months hop is a fun Animal Lover theme! You would think that with my menagerie (3 Horses, a dog and whatever wild critter that decides to hang out here) that I would have been bubbling over with ideas... Well, not so much. I think what I came up with is really fun! I can't wait to share it with you!
I just love the colors in this stack of It's My Party DSP!! So the funny thing is that I whipped out this cute little Fridge Magnet To Do List in about 20 minutes! The card was a little harder knowing I needed to incorporate an animal! I knew Zoo Babies would be fun to use so I started with the colors from the It's My Party and the Melon Mambo Lion won!
My super fun card started with a great base of Basic Black Cardstock. With a quick layer of Melon Mambo. I did one more layer using DSP. Next I cut a thin strip of the star pattern so that my card coordinated with my project! I did a narrow Basic Black strip with some twisted up Melon Mambo/Black Twine. I punched the Melon Mambo lion from Zoo Babies out using a 1 3/8 inch circle punch and layered it on to the 1 3/4 Scallop Circle then adhered it to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I then used various sizes of circle punches to make my fun little circles with fun little coordinating enamel dots! I didn't want this to be a "Baby" card... I still hadn't used my Party Pants set from Sale-A-Bration and thought that sentiment was absolutely adorable!
I know, I know!! Adorable right? The To Do List pad was a whopping 50 cents!!! So I bought a few thinking MAAAAYYYYBEEE I can figure out something to do with them! Well, I did something and I think this turned out totally cute! I used the backing page from our DSP as my base. I cut it 5.5 inches by 9.5 inches. I cut my Basic Black Cardstock to cover in the same size and used liquid multipurpose glue to adhere it so that it was more sturdy. I then did a matted layer of the Its My Party DSP and like the card did a strip on the right with a quick little twine bow! BOOM! Done!
I can't thank you all enough for stopping by!
