Play on Words with an Animal Gift Set

Happy Monday, my stamping/bloggfing friends!  I use to detest Mondays when I was working, but now that I am retired, every day is like a Saturday!!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  More time for me and stamping!  Giggle.

There are two fun challenges going on over at Splitcoaststampers today:  (1)  Clean and Simple to design your card around a play on words (2) Technique to decorate the envelope!!

I recently received some new rubbah from Rubbernecker, and I just LOVE these adorable animals and their play-on-word sentiments.  I made a gift set using four of the animals; there are many more cute ones in the set!   You can do a search on the Rubbernecker website using their SKU numbers.  The Animals are #569 and the Sentiments are #568.

And here are the cards individually, including a close up for each of the popped-up animals.  As always, you can click on the individual photo for a larger view.

Each animal was colored with Copic markers, cut out, and popped up on 1/8" dimensionals.  I drew the grass and waves on the back of my designer paper and cut them out.  I used border punches for the bottoms of the other two cards.  I just love Joan's technique challenge to make a coordinating envelope! 

Thanks for stopping by.  As always, I treasure your comments.  I hope you're having a "Whale of a Good Day!"
