Hello, hello, and here we are at another weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge, life has been a bit hectic and I haven’t been in my Craftroom for over a week 😭, so for this week I am posting a card that I made last month. It was a special request and it was a bit of a challenge in itself, I needed to make a Safari Animal themed baby boy card 🤔 which doesn’t seem too complicated but the only “safari” animal I have is a monkey 🐒, soooooo Scan n Cut to the rescue again, and this is what I came up with.
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.
The card stock is all from Stampin Up and the colours are listed below, the patterned paper and border and tag stickers are from a retired Stampin Up kit, I happened to be using them on a Previous Card and they were still sitting out. Worked great for this card as well.
I decided to make a 5 1/2” square card.
To make the crib I used Karen Burniston’s “Garden Bench” die set. It is currently retired but I’ve seen it on EBay so you might get lucky. When you cut out the bench cut away the pattered paper piece (you are cutting through 2 layers, then glue down the other side of the patterned paper background.
I googled the image below because I thought it was ADORABLE. I wanted to size the image so all the pieces would stay to scale so I traced them separately keeping like colours together. I sized it with my Scan n Cut.
Colouring added so much more dimension.
Now to create the front of the card.
I used random punches and dies to creat the rattle, soother and the bib. (I changed the bib at a later stage)
Now for the inside animals. I traced and drew them separately so I could scan them separately so I could size them independently.
The bananas came with my Jinx the Monkey set which is currently retired but you could double punch or die cut ovals to get a similar shape. The hammock is from Palm Tree Pop up die set from Karen Burniston.
Time to assemble the inside…..
