Animal Expedition Pair

Don't you just love all the beautiful colors in the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper?  So many bright colors and those sweet little birds flying all around!

Recipe (2 color choices):
Pool Party / Berry Burst - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Berry Burst / Pool Party - 4 1/4" x 2 3/4"
Pool Party / Berry Burst - 3 3/4" x 1 3/4"
Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Stamps:  Animal Outing
Ink:  Memento Black
Stampin' Blends:  Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Bronze,

I stamped the Giraffe, twice, with Memento Black Ink, let it dry completely and then colored with Stampin' Blends - Daffodil Delight Light and Crumb Cake Dark.  I also used the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends for a very light thin shadow on one side of each giraffe.

Inside I stamped the branch with the little frog.  Sorry the frog is a bit blurry... not sure what happened there!

Remember to decorate the flap with matching Designer Series Paper.

... and I finally remembered to stamp the front of the envelope!  I always mean to, and it just escapes my brain!  Give it a try - you'll love how nice it makes the envelope look.  Before coloring the envelope, I slipped a piece of scrap paper inside just in case the Stampin' Blends bled through.  I didn't notice any ink inside, but if you were coloring something darker, or heavy on the ink, it certainly could.

Thank you for looking in!  Happy FRIDAY!
