The Zany Zebra Halloween Card is a cute and unexpected greeting card in orange and black. I have been using the zebras from the Zany Zebras stamp set a lot. It is fun to think of new ways to use them, and they are cute every singe time. Here the poor zebra is caught in Halloween cob webs (Festive Corners stamp set) and surrounded by little Halloween bats (Festive Post stamp set). But even considering his current predicament, I think he is pretty cute! I chose Mango Melody for the orange, and I think it looks good with the black. I considered extra embellishments and some bling, but ultimately decided that clean and simple worked best for this card. I hope you like it.
- Basic Black card stock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5-1/2″ for card base
- Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ layer of black and white plaid
- Mango Melody card stock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ card layer, 2-1/2″ x 3-5/8″ layer for zebra
- Whisper White card stock: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ panel for inside of card, 3-5/8″ x 5″ card panel, 1-7/8″ x 3-1/4″ layer for stamping
Determine the placement of the cob web stamp and line it up on the white layer to ensure it is square. Stamp it in black, then stamp “Happy Halloween” and trick or treat in the opposite corner. Stamp the zebra in Mango Melody on white card stock, stamp black bats in the corners, then crop the images with the rectangle stitched die. Cut a layer of Mango Melody with the die one size larger. Assemble all layers, and add the large white panel to the inside of the card for writing. You may also choose to stamp a spider web, bats, or a zebra on the inside.
