Zebra Party

Here's a card from a few weeks ago, finally got an image editted of it! It was a birthday card for a 9 year old girl who likes all things horsie. Last year's card had also featured the Pony Party stamp set, so we gave it a twist this year and made the pony into a zebra! I was a little worried I'd overdone the stripes on the face, but Shaelea thought it was fine so who am I to argue lol

The pony was stamped on Whisper White cardstock, stripes and hooves done with a Basic Black marker and then a little Early Espresso ink was sponged around the muzzle. To create the shadow on the Crumb Cake layer I first sponged some Crumb Cake ink and then lightly sponged some Early Espresso for a variety. Along the top and the bottom of the Crumb Cake layer there are tiny Early Espresso scallops, created by attaching a strip of Early espresso that had been punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch. The greeting was inked with Early Espresso, stamped on Whisper White and cut out. I then edge it with a thin line of Tombow glue and sprinkled some black glitter over the glue. I punched an extra large oval from Whisper White cardstock, ran a thin line of Tombow around it and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over it. Once the glues were dry and excess glitter removed I attatched the two layers. I cut some small pieces of the 1/8" black taffeta ribbon, formed these into little loops and attached them to the back of the greeting using Sticky Strip. The Crumb Cake layer was attached to the Basic Black folded card base, zebra attached and greeting mounted with dimensionals and lastly a tiny rhinestone added to each corner to finish it all off.
