Hippo Happiness | Happy 7th Birthday

Hi Everyone,
I have the CUTEST card ever for you all today!  It features the Hippo Happiness bundle! 
Have you seen this adorable set on page 49 of our annual catalog?  I think it was the perfect choice for my wonderful goddaughter's 7th birthday this week. I did not do a video tutorial but have included directions below on this project as well as a supply list.  This is also what I would consider a fun fold card.  You know I love those! I'm shocked at how quickly it came together.  Can you tell her favorite colors are pink and orange?  LOL Magenta Madness and Mango Melody worked great!

Here's a quick video of how the card opens:

  • Cut a piece of Whisper White to 4" x 10" and score at 5"
  • Die cut 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle in 2020-2022 In Color DSP, add to front of Whisper White
  • Cut 2 - 3 1/2" squares of Whisper White and score them diagonally and adhere to back of Whisper White base folding over front of In Color DSP layer.
  • Cut a piece of Magenta Madness to 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 and Whisper White base to it.  So, now your Magenta Madness is the card back.
  • Die cut 2 - labels from Hippo & Friends dies and layer together.
  • Stamp your Hippo in Gray Granite.  I stamped off for background hippo image. Full strength for top Hippo layer and Memento Black for face.  
  • Belly Band - Vellum 1 1/4" x 11, wrap around card.  
  • I add a piece of Mango Melody DSP 1" x 4 1/4" to center of Vellum.
  • Stamp and die cut balloons.  I added some Wink of Stella to them also. 
  • I used Family Party and A Grand Kid for inside sentiments.
