Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share a set of “build a Hippo” baby cards over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I adore this little die cut die so much! It´s perfect for so many occations and like made for creating baby cards! And while I was at it, a created a set of three. You never know when you need one!
This is how I created the cards:
Step 1: First take a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut 3 sets of Hippos. And don´t forget to die cut the feet six times!!
Step 2: Next take a sheet of Soft Sky and Dusky cardstock and die cut two sets with the Stitched Rounded Rechtangle from the blue paper and one set from the lilac one.
Step 3: Take a white Soft Finish Cardstock sheet (or glitter cardstock) and die cut three sets with the Postage Stamp Rectangles die cut die.
Step 4: Ink the hippo pieces with grey and pink stamp ink, but leave the eyes and teeth white.
Step 5: Now cut blue and purple patterned paper into a card size from the polka-dotted “Thinking about Polinesia” paper. Adhere onto the card base.
Step 6: Attach a piece of ribbon in blue and pink onto the cards, then adhere the rechtangle pieces on place. Start with the postage stamp piece and adhere the rounded rectangle on top.
Step 7: Add a stamped sentiment using the Ahoy Sentiments or the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set and black stamp ink.
Step 8: Color the tiny eye pieces with a black marker and adhere on place.
To give you a better idea of each and every step, I´ve again recorded a video for your to watch. I hope you like it!
I hope I could inspire you to play with your die cut dies a little today and create a few cards yourself! I´ll be back with another project next month.
Until then, happy crafting!
