Stacking Animalsby Jen Carter
I adore (ADORE) these baby animal dies! This is the first of several cards that I'll be sharing using these dies. The first thing I thought of when I started playing with these were that they would be so cute stacked, which of course required a tall card. This card measures 8 x 4, so I cut my card base 8 x 8 to accommodate the fold. I chose some cute patterned paper for my animals and went to stacking!
Do you see the base that the elephant is balancing precariously on? That is a die that is included in the die set and it worked perfectly to ground these animals. I thought it would be cute to add a little butterfly from the Petite Butterflies die set on the lion's tail! For the ear of the elephant and the face of the lion I used dimensionals to pop them up a little. There are eyes for the lion that can be die cut too but this time I used a little black pen to add eyes.
The monkey seemed like he needed to be clowning around so I put him upside down as if he were swinging around. I think he is so adorable! To make him seem more 3D I adhered the top portion of him (head) directly to the card front and then I used dimensionals to pop up his bottom stomach and legs. It added a fun dimension to the animals!
This die set is so fun!! There are so many possibilities, so many themes that they can be used with!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the card!
