Darling Donkeys, Oh SO Ombre, Here's a Card, Birthday Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

While looking for a quick and simple card to make using the "Darling Donkeys" set.  Now fussy cutting is not a quick thing so I settled for simple!  LOL I found this card here. It does not lead to a link to find any instructions or measurements, so here is how I made the card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Smoky Slate card stock.

I struggled with the measurements for the layers but I think I managed to get it close enough. The Bermuda Bay piece was cut at 3-5/8" x 4-7/8".  

The Basic White piece was cut at 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  I used the 4th largest rectangle die in the "Rectangle Stitched" Framelets pack.  The background is from the Designer Series Paper (DSP) 6" x 6" "Oh So Ombre" pack. I cut the DSP 3-3/8" x 4-5/8".  I taped the DSP to the Basic White piece and then I taped those two to the Bermuda piece.  I set all those layers in place on the card base using double sided tape.  

I stamped the donkey from the "Darling Donkeys" set using black Memento ink.  I used the piece of card stock that was from the center of the Basic White framed die. I fussy cut him out and then I colored him in using my light Smoky Slate, Dark Gray Granite, Light Poppy Parade, Dark Granny Apple Green and Dark Petal Pink Blends pens. Then I set the donkey on a piece of scrap copier paper and I took my Basic Black marker and I traced around the edges of the piece. This hides the white edges and makes it look like you are a super great fussy cutter!!!  It gives the edges a nice clean look.

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set and were stamped using Bermuda Bay ink. I used the second smallest "Stitched so Sweetly" rectangle die to cut them out.  

The donkey and the word piece were set in place with Dimensionals.  A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.  

Even with the fussy cutting it went pretty quick. I think it's adorable and I especially love the donkey against that background.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time today to stop by and have a look,                                    Wanda
