Created this birthday card with a Tiger theme.
Used a 50% off Michaels coupon and bought a new Sizzix BIGkick to replace my broken one since I wanted a manual die cutter & embosser. The new BIGkick is the same blue color I had before and this one came with the extended base plate. My former one manufacturer date was 10/5/2009 and this one has an 10/2014 date.
Used Simon Says Stamp stitched square die to cut the opening. Used a Cuttlebug embossing folder that has Tiger stripes on it or it could also be Zebra stripes. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the embossing. Stamped for the inside of card a Hero Arts birthday sentiment & Tiger Paw Prints. Stamped for front of card a Stampabilities Tiger.
