Safari Friends Birthday card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going. Yesterday we went to see Sister Act at the theatre it was brilliant. Today I have been on a school trip to look at rivers in the New Forest ( this will be my last ever school trip). I am a bit tired and a bit behind with things. Hopefully I will be able to catch up over the rest of the week.

I could resist buying issue 145 of Papercraft Essentials magazine with its Animal Friends embossing folder and stamp set back in April. As our daughter is getting married in a zoo I used this set to make her birthday card.

The Zebra paper was left over from makes for the wedding. The flowers were created with a punch and the leaves with the Laurel Leave die designed  by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 

All the stamps were stamped in black archival and coloured with me Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.

I cut the animals out with my Brother Scan and cut that way they can have an even border. 

I made a little scene with the couple. I framed it with a Sue Wilson die it was nice to have the hearts in the frame. 

Yes I used my Crafter's Companion Happy Birthday die again it is a good size. 

I took this photo on the trip. We were doing activities around the river and this group of horses with a foal came for a drink and then went again. 

She was very pleased with this card. I did enjoy using the stamps it is a great set. 

Happy Crafting
