It’s a Zany Zoo Birthday

Can you believe it’s August! I know time seems to be flying by. Even though it’s August, I’m still sharing cards from the July card class featuring the Zany Zoo Bundle. This week’s card is a Zany Zoo Birthday Card. The whimsical card is appropriate for all ages but would be especially good for those hard to create preteen/teen cards. At least, for me those are the ages that challenge me when cardmaking. As in my last post featuring the Zany Zoo Bundle, the coordinating Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper is used for the characters. And since the turtle has the microphone (singing Happy Birthday), the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder creates a perfect base for the singer and his dancers. Below you’ll find cut dimensions and a video to help you recreate this fun card.

It’s A Zany Zoo Birthday Card Cut Dimensions:
  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (score/fold at 4-1/4″ for card base)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ (layering panel); scrap (die cut)
  • Basic White Cardstock: (2) 5-1/4″ x 4″ (embossing & card interior); scrap (sentiment)
  • Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper: fussy cutting & die cutting

The fun characters on this card make me smile!
