Animal Expedition, Better Together, Children's Birthday Card

I did not buy the set and dies that go with the "Animal Expedition" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I just thought I would get the DSP and cut out the images and use them on cards.  Me cut things out?  I've gotten SO spoiled by the matching dies that it's a chore to fussy cut.  SO lazy!! LOL

I had cut the DSP a while ago and didn't do anything with it. I had other cards I wanted to make and this got pushed aside.  While cleaning up the piles of papers before stampers come over I ran across this and thought I should make a card so it doesn't get lost or ruined.  I mean, it was about 1/3 of the way done!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Tranquil Tide card stock.  This card opens on the right side.

I cut a piece of DSP 4" x 5-1/4", it's the top piece.  The bottom piece was cut 1-3/4" x 4".  I taped it over the top of the other piece.  Both pieces are from the "Animal Expedition" 12" x 12" DSP pack.  I also cut an 1/4" x 4" piece of Tranquil Tide card stock and I glued that strip over the seam where the two pieces of DSP meet.

The words are from the "Better Together" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I liked the font used here, it has a fun, pleasing to children look to it.  I die cut it using a circle die and I die cut a Tranquil Tide scalloped circle that was a little bit bigger than the word circle.  

I had some enamel dots left over and I thought I'd add them to the bottom of the words for a bit of color.  And that was it.  

It was a fun and quick card to make.  I think it will make a child smile.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

This is such a fun, cute card for a child. I agree the font of the sentiment is great for a child. Enjoy your day!
