Go Wild...

My little sister's birthday is today and I wanted to show you the card I made for her.  She's not as in love with the animal print as I am but I came up with this idea and just couldn't pass it up.  Plus I made it using her favorite color purple so I'm sure she'll love it.
 I cut the zebra from Create a Critter at 3".  The "Go Wild" phrase is also from Create a Critter and was cut at 1.5"  The card I made is a standard A2 size card.  I used a black base and the animal print paper is from Michael's.  The pack that you can buy comes with pink zebra print, blue zebra print, traditional white and black zebra print, green leopard print and purple leopard print.  The nice thing about this paper is that it is a solid color on the back and it matches.  No need to find a matching purple.
The first layer of the card is cut at 4 x 5.25".  The next layer was cut at 3.75 x 5" and I used my Cuttlebug to emboss it with the leopard print folder from the Animal Print embossing folders pack.  The black paper is cut at 1.75 x 3.75".  I used the black to help my "Go Wild" phrase stand out better.  It turned out to be a very cute card.
 On the inside I used the back of the animal print paper as a mat for my writing.  I also added a detail of the animal print paper at the bottom (1.75 x 3.75").  I stamped "It's Your Birthday!" using some individual letter stamps.
I was all about the animal print with this card.  I even made an animal print liner for the envelope.
I hope you enjoyed this card.
Have a Magical Day :)
