I think that the Animal Outing stamp set is one of my favorites from the new catalog. I decided to make a new baby card, just to have on hand and think the kangaroo is just too cute. This month over at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday, the featured technique shows ways to add dimension with out Dimensions. so I wanted to demonstrate that.  Here’s a card I made as a sample.

Design Notes for Animal Outing Baby Card:

I stamped the kangaroo and used Watercolor Pencils to color her in. The Animal Friends Thinlits made it easy to cut out the kangaroo and about 8 more of that shape from Crumb Cake card stock. I glued the colored kangaroo on top of the stack of plain, Crumb Cake ones.

And what do you think of the background? I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake Card stock after I inked up the inside of the Petal Burst Embossing folder. Isn’t that an interesting effect?
