The Stamp Review Crew: Zoo Babies

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  This time we are hopping along with a fun animal set, designed for babies but really can be used for so much more, Zoo Babies.  If you are hopping around in a circle, you have just come from Rochelle Blok's blog.  She always has such fabulous projects!

February's Paper Pumpkin kit gave me a great idea for a card, the cascade fold.  Using two of the accordion bases, I was able to create this fun landscape-shaped card.

I stamped and fussy cut and stamped and cut some more.  Little tweaks here and there, and a little advice from hubs, I think I'm finally happy with it.

I outlined how I created this card:
  • To create this card, I altered the instructions from this Splitcoaststampers technique challenge.
  • Remove 2 panels from each of two scored bases (remaining base size 3-3/4 x 16-1/2").
  • Cut base diagonally so one side is 1-5/8" high and the other is 3-3/4" high.
  • Make a pencil mark at 13/16" on short side and 1-7/8" on long side (half way point).  Draw a faint pencil line to join these marks.
  • On one base piece, cut up to median pencil line from the bottom on score lines #1 and #5.  Cut down from the top to median pencil line on score line #3.
  • On the other base piece, cut down to median pencil line from the top on score lines #1 and #5.  Cut up from the bottom to median pencil line on score line #3.
  • Assemble card by sloting pieces together and decorate.
