Fun Birthday Card Featuring Zany Zebras by Stampin' Up!

We have a new challenge for you at Cardz 4 Galz and I think you will enjoy this one – “Monochrome” cards! I just posted one yesterday that you might want to check out as well. This style really appeals to me and often do it without even realizing it! I wanted to make a fun birthday window card using the new Zany Zebras stamp set. Those zebras are so cute!


  • This 6″ square card was a breeze to make! The card base is Calypso Coral, cut at 6″ x 12″ and scored at 6.”
  • Choosing a fun small polka dot patterned paper, I cut it to 5 1/4″ and layered it onto Whisper White cardstock.
  • I cut through all three layers with the Hippo & Friends die, and saved the Whisper White one for the focal point.
  • The two zebras were stamped – one with Basic Gray that was fussy cut and the second one was stamped onto the WW piece cut out from the window.
  • Then, I made the frame for the window with Calypso Coral.
  • The sentiment was stamped with Calypso Coral ink and cut out with the new Banner Pick a Punch. It was popped up with dimensionals, then the zebra was popped up over it.
  • I added the polka dot tulle ribbon, tying in a knot. Calypso Coral bakers twine was added to the ribbon with a few little Playful Pets trinkets for some fun.
