Hip Hippo Ray


This is a card I made for this month's Papercraft Inspirations magazine, there are four of mine in there. The brief was to make a new baby card using cute animals, so I made the mummy and baby hippo with george and the cricut (sounds like a seventies rock group, George and the Cricuts Yeah!), cutting out a series of circles and ovals. The papers are from DCWV Baby Girl stack, the sentiment is studio G, the inside sentiment reads Hip Hippo Ray I know, corny, but cute). I doodled the hippo faces, used black dots for the noses and eyes, and inked all the edges with colorbok bronze cat's eye ink pad. The magazine is on sale now in the UK, February in the USA and Canada.

Love It - Love It - what more can I say - It is just soooooo cute - I can't wait for the magazine to hit Australia so I can make this card.
Hope your knee gets better and your cupboard is fixed soon and get those black bags out of the house.

Enfys, those hippos are just too darling!! I love how you used patterned paper for them (I probably would have just used plain cardstock).

I have left you an award on my blog...be sure to stop by and check it out.
