You Rock My Heart!

Hello again! Today I have an anniversary card that I made for my husband to share with you! It uses a number of adorable MFT products including the sweet Jungle Vibes stamp set that features sweet musical jungle animals. I love the fun sayings included in the set and thought this was a perfect playful set to use for my card as my husband loves to play guitar.

I started out by using some distress oxide inks to create a blended background. I then used the large dot stencil and went over it again using the same colors. Finally I spritzed the background with a water and perfect pearl shimmer to give it some shine.

After die-cutting all of my pieces for both the outside and inside with the stitched borders, I stamped out that sweet zebra and colored him with copic markers before die cutting him out. I also die cut the zebra shape out of fun foam for some added dimension (which you can see in the picture below)

After finishing off the Zebra with some details to the eyes with a black glaze pen and then a white gel pen, I stamped out the musical notes and then stamped all the sentiments and die cut the one for the front to make it stand out. For the inside panel, it was a little too white, so I added a blue distressed background, just to give it a pop of color.

How can you finish such a sweet card without a matching envelope? LOL! Just had to have an excuse to stamp out the other sweet zebra. Love how this turned out!

Here is the finished card and envelope together.

I would like to enter this card into the Simon Say's Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by,
