A fun congratulations or celebration card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Real Red Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Basic Black Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1" x 3-1/2" from Whisper White Cardstock
Insert the black rectangle into the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the paper inside on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine platform and run through the machine.
Cut a 4-3/4" piece of the Real Red 1/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.
Lay the ribbon across the bottom of the dry embossed black rectangle so it is about 1" from the bottom. Flip the rectangle over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the dry embossed black rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Real Red card.
Mount the jumping zebra image from the Zany Zebras Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Memento or StazOn Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square.
Use the fine tip of the Real Red Marker to color in the hooves, lips, and hair in the mane and tail.
Carefully cut out the zebra image by hand using Paper Snips.
Pick out a hoop from the Gold Hoops Embellishments. Use a squished Mini Glue Dot on one section of the hoop to adhere the hoop to the front of the card so it is about 1" from the top edge and about 3/4" from the left edge. Make sure the Mini Glue Dot will be hidden by the zebra cut out in the next step.
Use Black Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the zebra cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the hoop on the lower right side and it looks like the zebra is jumping through the hoop.
Mount one of the single line sentiments from the Zany Zebras Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white strip near one edge. Leave room to punch it out.
Unlock the Classic Label Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch. Keep the remaining strip of white cardstock as well as the punched out sentiment.
Use mini Black Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment punch out to the front of the card so it is centered over the ribbon on the left side.
Mount the party hat image from the Zany Zebras Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Memento or StazOn Ink Pad. Stamp it on the remaining strip of white cardstock.
Use the fine tip of the Real Red Marker to color in the dots and pompom on the hat.
Carefully cut out the party hat image by hand using Paper Snips.
Use a mini Black Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the party hat cut out to the front of the card so it appears to be on the top of the zebra's head.
Cut a 6" piece of the Real Red 1/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.
Fold the ribbon in half. Slide one end of the folded ribbon under the ribbon already on the card front just to the right of the sentiment punch out. Tie the ribbon in place using a half knot. Trim the ends.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 3 rhinestones from a sheet of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them randomly to the card front above the ribbon.
