A 1st Birthday Hippo

Pin It

It's my nephew's 1st birhday!

I stamped this little hippo on the dp and them cut him out. I also stamped him on bordering blue to get the blue bow, cut it out and glued onto the hippo.
He was a little flimsy so I ran him through the Xyron and them stuck him to white cardstock and cut him out again.
Then I popped him up on the scallop rectangle that I got from the PIF thread on SCS. (It's the PIF Stamped Imaages (& punches) thread under Swaps, Everything Else. We are currently in Round 24!! So much fun, come join us!)
The rectangle is then popped up on the main card base.

Got that yummy ribbon for $1 at M's on Monday!
(I also got some in lavendar!!)

Recipe:
Stamps ~ Pun Fun
Paper ~ white, bordering blue, barely banana, SU dp
Ink ~ basic black
Accessories ~ ribbon, dimensionals, Sizzix number dies, CB Paisley folder


And here's what I did with those flowers I got from Michaels...

Have a great rest of the week!
