A Little Help From My (Furry) Friends

Hey All! Welcome to another die cut challenge from the Stuck On U Sketches team.

Some friends of mine just had a little baby girl last month. I’m a little late with the card and gift, but that just keeps the celebration going, right? Anyway, I decided to use the help of a few furry friends to welcome little Abigail into this fantastic, wild world. Let’s take a look:


For this A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4-inch) card, I used a White Daisy card base and added patterned paper and embossed resist cardstock from the retired Dream Pop collection by Close To My Heart. The heart photo frame that is holding the sentiment, along with the giraffe and the lion are cut using  CTMH’s new Artbooking Cricut cartridge. (All three were also cut from  Dream Pop paper.) The sentiment and animals are from the CTMH Wild Wonders stamp set, and the hearts are from the retired Whooo’s Your Valentine? stamp set. I stamped the monkey in Lagoon  and the hippo in Hollyhock Exclusive inks, and then fussy cut them and adhered them to the card. I stamped the bird twice, once in Gypsy and once in Honey Exclusive inks. I fussy cut the body of the Gypsy bird and layered it on the Honey bird. I then fussy cut the whole thing and adhered it to the card. The giraffe and lion are popped up with dimensional adhesive.

Here are a couple of close-ups:





I hope you enjoyed my furry friends. For more inspiration, hop on over to Stuck On U Sketches and see what the design team has in store.
