The Robin's Nest Design Team Post: Animal Prints

A Wild and Glittery Day to You!

I can't help but smile when I look at all the fabulous glittery animal print cardstock from The Robin's Nest.  These glittery papers just put a twinkle in my eye (pun intended).  And for the entire month of July, you can get 20% off any of the Animal Prints!

As I pulled out all the glittery goodness in my stash, my eye was drawn to the hot pink leopard print.  Of course, I didn't see leopard.  I saw giraffe!  Ever since I was a little girl (just a few years ago, lol), I have always had a love for giraffes.  They just have the absolute sweetest faces.  Here is the card I designed:

I started out with a 5" x 5" card and cut the glittery cardstock to 4.75" x 4.75".  I inked the edges with Pink Passion Ink (Stampin' Up) and adhered it to the card base.

Next I sprayed the adorable Cottage Window chipboard with Glimmer Mist and stamped the giraffe and bird on a square of white cardstock to fit behind the window.

I hand-lettered the sentiment on white cardstock and adhered it to some wavy pink corrugated cardstock that I had in my scrap drawer.

 A cute little round paperclip and some twine added just the right touch.  
Oh! Do you want a handy little tip on storing your twine?  Baby food jars!  I haven't gotten around to painting the lids to make them all pretty and stuff, but they sure are functional!

And what card is complete without a little Dew Drop bling?

So there you have it.  

Now that you've had a chance to check out my little project, head on over to The Robin's Nest and see what fabulousness they have to offer!  You may just get some twinkly inspiration!

Til next time, keepin' it crafty!
