This year, Stampin' Up! is trying something new with the Carryover List!  Some Holiday Catalog items will carry over into the big Annual Catalog and a handful of Holiday Catalog items will leave us temporarily, then return again for the 2020 Holiday Catalog!  Woohoo!  That means that they will be available while supplies last thru January 3, 2020, but they will be back next holiday season along with tons on new holiday items!  I love that we'll have some extra time to play with these items!

Animal Outing Welcome Little One Card

I attended a baby shower for my niece over the weekend and I made this adorable front flap card to go with the gift.  
Background Basics—I started with a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" quarter sheet of Mossy Meadow cardstock as the base and adhered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper on it with SNAIL.

Front Flap—Next, I cut a 2-1/4" x 10-1/2" strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock, scored it at the 5-1/4" mark and adhered it to the card base with Tear & Tape for a secure hold.  I decorated the flap with a 2" x 5" piece of Old Olive gingham paper from the Regals 6×6" Designer Series Paper Pack. I also tied some Mint Macaron 1/4" Texture Ribbon around the top of the flap.

Focal Point—I stamped the Animal Outing kangaroo in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die-cut it with the Layering Circles dies.  I colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers and stamped the "little one" sentiment on the stomach, before layering onto a Mint Macaron scalloped circle die-cut and popping it up onto the flap. I colored with Ivory on the stomach, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede for the rest of the body, and Smoky Slate and Light Black for the koala.  

Finishing Touches—I stamped the Animal Outing "welcome" in Memento Black onto Mint Macaron and cut it into a banner shape, attaching it with SNAIL.  I finished by adding a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Old Olive around the circle. So sweet!

Inside The Card—I'm "wild about" my niece's baby already, so this was the perfect sentiment for the inside!
