STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Bermuda Bay card stock.
Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut three 1/2 x 4 1/2 strips of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.
Flip one piece the opposite direction as the other two, then cut all at 2 3/4.
Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay Classic Ink onto a 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock.
Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal.
Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the Hippo as follows:
- Solid Base – Highland Heather Stamped Off
- Body, Face – Gorgeous Grape
Crop with the coordinating Hippo & Friends die and a die-cutting and embossing machine.
POP OF PERSONALITY! Add a Purple Posy Playing With Patterns Resin Dot as shown.
FOR THE PERFECT POLISH! Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 2 1/4 x 5 3/4 piece of Gorgeous Grape 6 x 6 Brights Designer Series Paper to the outside flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope. Trim to size with Paper Snips.
You can see my video demonstration with tips on adding designer paper to an envelope flap here.
