African Safari : Zebras

0 14 Comments

My card today has been made using Pollyanna Pickering’s African Safari DVD Rom by Creative Crafting World.

You will need:

African Safari DVD Rom
1 x 8″ by 8″ white card
1 x White card
1 x Grass die
Wet glue
Foam pads


Choose three papers and one topper from the dvd rom.

Score the front of the 8″ by 8″ white card at 10cms and then cut 4cms off the bottom of the card. Don’t throw this as this piece of card is included in the design.

Cut all the papers to size:

1 x 9.5cms by 15.5cms (front fold paper)
1 x 19.5cms by 15.5cms (Inside paper)
3 x 3.5cms by 9.5cms (this is for the cut off piece)
1 x 3.5cms by 19.5cms (this is for the cut off piece)
1 x 18cms by 14cms (back of the card)
1 x 17cms by 13cms White card (back of the card)
1 x 13cms by 13cms (matt for the topper, if your topper is smaller just cut the matt layer 0.5cms larger than the topper)

Next attach the papers to the front and inside of the card base.

Using the piece of card that was cut off attach the papers and then attach this to the bottom of the card base. The longest part goes on the front of the card and the smallest is attached to the inside of the card. Please see picture for reference.

Matt and layer the topper and then using foam pads attach this to the front fold.

Next matt and layer the paper and white card that was cut for the back of the card. This is where you can write your message.

To finish the design off I have cut a couple of grass die cuts and fussy cut one of the Zebra’s out and attached these to the card.

Don’t forget to add a sentiment to the card.
