Supplies Used On This Project

Cardstock Measurements

  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 2″ x 5-1/2″ and 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ and 1/2″ x 1″

Project Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, score at 4-1/4” and fold at score line to
    create your base card.
  2. Cut a piece of 4” x 5-1/4” Basic White Cardstock and adhere to inside of card.
  3. Cut a 3-1/2” x 5-1/2” piece of the striped Snail Mail Designer Paper and adhere to base card.
  4. Cut a 2” x 5-1/2” piece of Basic White cardstock. Using Real Red ink, stamp the envelop
    randomly down the cardstock as shown in the sample. Adhere to base card so that it’s positioned
    in-between the stripes.
  5. Cut a 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” square of Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Cut a 2-1/4” x 2-1/4” square of Basic
    White Cardstock. Stamp the Kangaroo in the lower left corner using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
    Color in the Kangaroo using the Light Soft Suede Blend; color in his ear using the Light Flirty
    Flamingo Blend. Adhere to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, stamp the envelope using Real Red ink and cut out using
    scissors. Adhere to the Kangaroo so it looks like he’s holding it.
  7. Cut a ½” x 1” piece of Basic White cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink. “Flag
    Notch” the bottom using scissors and adhere to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
