Picture Book Zebra

Hello there, today I am taking a little break from Christmas cards as Simon Says Stamp kindly sent me the Picture Book Zebra Die from their latest Friends release and I just had to use it asap! It is so very cute!

I started off by taking an A2 white card base and cutting a window in to it using the scallop MFT Peek-a-Boo Circle Window die. I then added a piece of acetate to the back of this so that it is stuck to the inside of the front side of the card. I cut the Picture Book Zebra die twice, once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock. The pieces were then assembled on to the acetate using Multi Medium Matte glue.
I took the 'hi' sentiment from the Tilted Banner Sayings Stamp Set and stamped this on to a piece of black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the acetate with Kool Tac (clear foam adhesive).
I added a piece of MFT Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Pastels paper to the inside of the card so that it can be seen through the window in the front. I then added a piece of white cardstock to the inside front piece to hide the adhesive showing from adding the zebra and the acetate. To finish off, I added Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to his eyes.
