Let's give a final salute, a last hurrah to the retiring Zany Zebras stamp set. Here's two cute and simple cards made with the Zany Zebras stamp set.
This time-saving technique is what I call the Peek-a-Boo Corner Technique. It really is a time saver because you don't have to spend endless minutes choosing which side of the designer paper you want to use. Simply fold down the corner and Tada, you can see both sides at once. Hint: Stamping with a Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool eliminates a lot of do-overs.
Cut Thick Whisper White Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/4".
Cut Designer Paper 4" x 5-1/4".
If you would like to invest a couple of extra minutes on your hand-stamped card, try this on the inside.
This Zany Zebras card was definitely designed as a Baby Card, but as I look at it I see that it could easily fit other occasions too. It could be congrats for any sort of child's accomplishment such as earning a new belt in a Karate Class or getting all A's. The Zany Zebras stamp set by Stampin' Up! makes such simple and fun cards for both babies or children.
How to Customize a Card
I chose to use my Playful Alphabet Dies for today's Baby Card for two reasons.
Reason #1-I wanted to make a big bold statement, so I cut "WOW!" from Coastal Cabana Cardstock. Then, I stamped Congratulations with a stamp from the A Grand Kid stamp set.
Reason #2-I simply wanted to say, "A Grandson" on the inside, but I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted to say. To playfully say, "A Grandson", I cut an A using my Playful Alphabet dies, then I picked up a snippet of plaid paper leftover from the front of my card to use as a mat, and finally, I stamped a sentiment that had the word "grandson" in it and simply snipped around the word that I wanted to use.
