Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies


I recently bought the Zoo Babies stamp set and couldn't wait to get it inked up and onto a card. :)

It is SO CUTE!

When I saw the colours from Pals Paper Arts and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch  , I knew that they would be perfect for my Zoo Babies! :)

My windows are recessed and were made using the smallest frame of the Squares Collection Framelits Dies.  I die cut it 9 times to get my windows and then I stamped onto the little squares. The squares were then stuck down onto my card base and the window panel was mounted with dimensionals (cut into tiny little strips), so that it floated on top of my stamped images. 

Confession time....I originally wanted this card to be beautiful and clean and white on the top, but after I finished my framelit cutting, I looked at my window piece and some dust must have settled onto my cutting plates and transferred marks onto my white card stock. Since it was late in the night, I didn't want to start all over again, so I just pulled out Gorgeous Grunge and stamped some 'splatter' over the top. 

Hope you like my card!
