Darling Donkey, Birthday Card, Wobble Card Technique, 2021 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

Here is the card I was talking about yesterday where I used the "Wobble" technique to make the little donkey move. Just like the kangaroo moved on yesterday's card.  It's a fun and cut technique. You can see how to make this card by clicking here.  There is a link to a video on the step by step details on how to do it. I do recommend using the 28 gauge wire. I used 20 gauge wire and the piece didn't have that nice fast wobble, it was more of a little giggle.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Rococo Rose card stock. A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black was taped on top of the card base.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flower & Field" 12" x 12"package.  The DSP is a Sale-a-Bration item you get free for a $50 purchase.

The donkey is from the "Darling Donkeys" set that is also a Sale-a-Bration item.  It was stamped using black Memento ink and fussy cut. I colored mine with the light and dark Smoky Slate Blends pens. And the muzzle, ears and feet were colored in using the light and dark Petal Pink Blends pens. 

I used 28 gauge wire that was wrapped around a round ink pen for about four times. For my wobbler, I punched out two 5/8" circles from some scrap card stock and I took an inch or so long piece of scotch tape and I cut it in half on the short side so I had two long strips. I centered the circle on the tape and then I slipped the piece between the first and second coil. I folded over the ends of the tape to hold the circle in place on the wire. I repeated this for the other end of the coil. 

I set my coil in place using glue dots. 

The words are from the same set. They were stamped using black Memento ink and then punched out using the "Modern Label" punch. I punched one side and then stuck the piece to a post it note and slipped it back in the punch and punched out the other end. I taped the piece in lace on top of the DSP.

The instructions had you cut the flowered piece at the top, following along the path of the flowers.  It made for a nice different edging.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside and the card was done.  

This was a very fun and easy card to make. Plus it's SO stinking cute too!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see what I was up to today,                      Wanda
