Animal die cuts

Happy Sunday!

I am up on the Papermilldirect blog today showing you how to create this sweet animal die cut card.

I love creating animal toppers for my cards and with all the different coloured cardstock at papermilldirect you will find the perfect colour of card for your toppers.

The products I used for this card are:

Buff Smooth Card 260gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm

Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm

Natural Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm

Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml

Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm

You will also need:

• Die cutting machine

• Some animal dies (feel free to use your electronic cutting machines)

• Scalloped oval die

• Stamped sentiment

• Tag or banner die

• White embossing powder

• Heat gun

• Sequins/gems

• Google eyes

To make the card base I used a piece of Buff Smooth Card 260gsm which I cut down and scored I half. The card front I used some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm which I also trimmed and adhered down using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To make the animal dies I used a fox and bunny die. For the fox I die cut some pieces of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm,White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and some Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm.

I then die cut the bunny pieces using some more White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm. I adhered all the pieces together using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I also added some google eyes to both the fox and bunny.

I then die cut a scalloped oval shape using some Natural Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm and adhered this down to my card centre using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I then placed the die cut animals onto this piece with more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I die cut a banner using some Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm and heat embossed some with embossing powder for the greeting, this was also adhered down using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish off the card I added some gems using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I loved how this card turned out and feel free to experiment with different colours of cardstock. Papermilldirect has lots of colours to choose from.

I hope you have fun creating some sweet animal toppers.

Thank you for stopping by!
