I used the stamp set Zany Zebras and Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper to create today’s card. 

Zany Zebras Stampin Up


I started with a base of Thick Whisper White cardstock and then cut strips of Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements I used below the supply list). I stamped the cute zebra onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento ink and then cut him out using the Layering Circles Dies. The Calypso Coral scalloped circle was also cut out using these dies.

The sentiment, also from the Zany Zebras stamp set, was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Calypso Coral ink and cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  Ninety-nine percent of the time I stamp first and then cut the words or shape out.  I find it so much easier to stamp and then line up the die rather than try to stamp directly onto the shape.

Both the sentiment and the Calypso Coral scalloped circle are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used this same layout with a card I shared last week using several products from the Whale Done Suite.  You can see it here
