Wild About Animals!

This is such a cute card that could be used as a birthday card or child's birthday party or baby shower invitation. It would be a great to use as a Vacation Bible School invitation too.

Cardstocks: Soft Sky, Brilliant Blue, Kraft, and Whisper White
Classic Inks: Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Bordering Blue, Basic Black, Glorious Green
Wild About You Stamp Set, Chocolate Chip Marker, Coluzzle Cutting System

Use Coluzzle to cut out circle from Kraft Cardstock. Cut in half to use as ship. Draw lines across it with the marker to make it look like wood. Adhere soft sky to white card base. Cut scallops in brilliant blue to make it look like ocean waves. Paste on top of Soft Sky. Stamp all animals in their appropriate colors on Whisper White and cut out. Line up where boat should be with your EYES first--take this advice from me--you'll never line it up right if you don't lay all this out first and then start gluing! Figure out where boat should be and then use your scissors to cut hole in brilliant blue. Put boat in this hole. It doesn't need to be perfect--it's water! Jagged is fine! Then put your animals in the boat. Happy Sailing!
