Girlie Zebra Card


Just popping in with a fun little zebra card to share.

The background paper is from Me and My Big Ideas, cute huh?!

I used my Cricut to create this card.

The little zebra is from Create a Critter and is cut at 2.75 inches.  The flower in her hair is part of a K & Company embellishment.  Simple googly eyes, and then for her nostrils I added Black Diamond Stickles.  For her ear and her mouth I used some Liquid Pearls in Petal Pink.

Emma is cut from Ashylyns Alphabet at 1.15 inches.  I covered it in lots of Stickles.

Is is from the same cartridge, using the skinny font at 1 inch - very tiny letters were hard to work with!

The three is from Sweet Treats, I just wanted a super fat 3 and knew there were fat numbers on that cartridge.  It's cut at 2.25 inches.  I cut it using some paper from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky pad.  I outlined it with some Stickles.  It's layered on a scalloped circle cut with my Nestabilities, but you could easily cut one from a cartridge.

There's my card!  I love being able to make personalized ones like this that include a name and an age.  Kids cards are the most fun :)

So, the reason I've been MIA this week is that I've been sewing!  I am actually attempting to make myself a dress.  I go back and forth between being excited about my progress, and wanting to throw the thing out the window.  *LOL*  Of course I've been doing other things too, but the sewing is the reason I haven't done my usual crafty projects and postings this week.  Glad I got to whip this card up today and had something fun to share.  Not so sure the dress will be worth sharing.

Amber this card is adorable. I love zebras and rarely see them used on cards, so this is something so new and fresh. You are so lucky to have been sewing. I want to learn so bad, along with crocheting. Maybe someday.
