Animal 2nd Birthday Card

I was asked to make a 2nd birthday card with animals. I used various dies from my stash to make the animals. I used Marianne Designs dies to make the deer, giraffe, monkey and elephant. The lion is cut using a Tonic die. I matt and layered my A4 card with kraft card and then yellow and white gingham card from Anna Marie. I inked all the edges before assembling the elements. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them with an oval die from a Presscut nesting set and mounted onto a larger kraft card oval. The circles are cut using dies from a nesting set from The Works. The number is cut with a Tonic die.
