Fox & Friends

Its been a while since I last posted a project.  Its been a crazy month however its been productive.  Today I'd like to share a card I recently made. I sent this card to a coworker who recently had twins, a boy and a girl. So precious!! Anyway, I realized that I didn't really have any stamp sets that had anything 'baby-ish' to make a congratulations card.  So I was a little bummed and nothing was coming to mind on how I could use my stamp sets for a baby card.  Call it crafters block, I guess.  I needed to get inspiration. So I went forth and did my routine blog-hopping and I came across Mary Jo Albright's blog post.  I love her work!  Her work never ceases to inspire me.  I pulled out my Fox & Friends stamp set and played around with it. Voila! Next thing I knew, this card was created.  

Yes, I know.  I got a little crazy with the paper snips.  Yes, I did cut all those pieces by hand. Crazy, I know.  But you know what....  I had a blast doing it.  I totally had a kick out of cutting up these animals that it didn't even seem like that much detailed cutting to me.  DEFINITELY LOVE THIS CARD!!! Isn't this monkey adorable!?!?  I made the animals (whole or part) pop up using dimensionals.  I think it gives it a much better effect that just a flat image. 

Hope you like it!  Happy Stampin'!

P.S.  The designer paper I used is retired from the last catalog.  I'm trying to use up the loads of retired DSP I have.
