Zany Zebras Baby Card

This weekend I was able to attend a baby shower for my daughter-in-law.  In another month, we will be welcoming a new granddaughter, Camryn, to the family!  The decor for baby Camryn’s room is jungle animals with a focus on zebras (as selected by big sister, Brooklynn).  So, the Zany Zebras stamp set created a perfect baby card. The 2020-2022 In-Color Magenta Madness adds a bright background highlighting the zebra.  More features of this fun card are below.

Notice the zebra is in a window.  Not only is the zebra in the window, it also wobbles.  Such fun to create a motion card.  I found the card wobbles on Amazon but if you want to keep the zebra stationary, Stampin’ Dimensionals will secure the zebra.

Zany Zebras Baby Card Details:
  • Create card base using Thick Whisper White cardstock (4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ for a side fold).
  • Cut a piece of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper 4″ x 5-1/4″ and attach to the card front.
  • Stamp the zebra onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (approximately 3″ x 3″) using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  With paper snips, fussy cut the zebra. (while you’re stamping, be sure to stamp a zebra on the envelope too!)
  • Select placement area for zebra.  Then, use the third largest Layering Circles Die cut a window into the card front.  
  • Create a frame for the window cut-out by using the second & third largest Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock.  Add the frame to the cut-out.
  • To showcase the zebra, add a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Magenta Madness cardstock to the card interior.  Center the zebra in the frame and adhere with either a card wobble or Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For the sentiment, add a 1-1/4″ x 3″ strip of Basic Black cardstock to a strip of the Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Cut the word “baby” using the Well Written Dies set.  Stamp the word “for” onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and use paper snips to cut into a small rectangle around the word.  The word for comes from the Well Said Stamp Set.  (The dies and stamp set are available as a bundle – saving you 10%).
  • Complete the card by adding the sentiment to the lower right area of the card front. 

Not only is the Zany Zebras baby card a fun, cheerful card, it is was a fun card to create!
