I just got my Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit in the mail this weekend. I love the Wild Cuddly Critters Stamp Set. I also own the Cuddly Critters Accessories Stamp Set. As soon as I looked at the two sets together, I know that I would be combining the stamp sets. Here is a card I made using both sets.
Size: Vertical side fold 4.25 x 7” card
Extra Details: I started by stamping all of the critters on white card stock. I choose not to use the penguin; he seemed out of place. I used colored pencils to color everything in. Once I was done coloring, I fussy cut all of the images out. I used a black marker to paint the edges to hide any cutting mistakes. To make the bird sit on the mouse’s head, I trimmed around his wings.
Next, I created my card base. I made a 4.25 x 7 inch card base so that I could fit all of the animals stacked up. I added some clouds to the card base for interest. I also added a strip of green plaid paper cut with a grassy border die. I stamped the sentiment next. I used part of a sentiment from the Wild Cuddly Critters set and a sentiment form the Cuddly Critter Accessories set.
Lastly, I adhered all of my animals in a stack and the card was finished.
