One of the stamp sets + dies from the current Online Exclusives is the Rhino Ready bundle.  I giggled when I saw the images of the rhino.  If anyone can make a rhino look cute, it is Stampin’ Up!  I just couldn’t resist.  I made this card for one of John’s brothers – the images are for the young and the young-at-heart!

Rhino Ready

       Rhino Ready Birthday Card

I got the inspiration for this card from Connie Babbert.  I always enjoy her work, and use her ideas often.  Here is what I used for my card:

  • Stamp Set: Rhino Ready (Online Exclusive #160959 $24.00)
  • Paper: Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Basic White, Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper (now retired, I am so glad I got this paper!)
  • Ink: Memento Black; Stampin’ Blends: Gray Granite, Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue, Light & Dark Granny Apple Green (to add more depth of color to the blades of grass)
  • Other: Rhino Ready Dies (Online Exclusive #160985  $32); 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots; Stampin’ Dimensionals; Stampin’ Cut & Emboss; Seal+; Tombow Multipurpose Glue

Note: After stamping the grass at the bottom of the card I stamped again on a piece of Basic White scrap paper, cropped it with the corresponding die, then cut a few blades of grass to place over the rhino’s foot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
