Couldn’t Resist Telling You…
Hi there! I’m so thrilled to be guesting on the SSS blog today, with a sweet card featuring some fun critters from Avery Elle’s Peek A Boo Pals stamp set.
I really wanted to let the critters take center stage, so I started out by stamping and coloring the ones I wanted to use. I played around with mixing and matching critters. For example, I knew I would color the sloth and monkey in similar shades of brown, and I wanted to make sure they wouldn’t be directly next to each other. You know, to avoid a “who wore it best” scenario. ha. I also wanted to make sure the height of the critters would balance out the card. So, the pointy-eared bunny standing on the panda’s back balances out the sentiment flag on the other side.
Once I had all of the critters colored, I knew I wanted them to be popping out of some kind of frame. With their paws hanging out, aren’t they just the cutest? I cut into an A2-sized piece of white cardstock with an Avery Elle hexagon die. I then selected a blue and white polka paper for the background and positioned the critters inside the frame.
To finish off, I stamped the first half of the greeting in Versamark and heat-embossed it onto a sentiment flag (that die is by Avery Elle too!) and then stamped the other half directly onto the patterned paper.
As a little finishing touch, I added a bright red heart. I love the sweet elephant just holding onto that.
I hope you like what I cooked up for you! Thanks for stopping by!

Super cute card! Love your awesome design!
The card is just so adorable, I love it!! The critters are so cute and I never thought about avoiding placing coloring next to each other “for the who wore it best, LOL!!!” but it makes total sense!! And I agree completely that if you put the sloth and the monkey next to each, you’d miss them because the colors would make them blend into each other, great tip! I always learn something new here on the SSS blog! Thank for sharing and again thanks for sharing awesome tip!
So, so cute and love all the little critters. Thanks for sharing.
