Stampin' Up! Rhino Ready & Radiating Stitched Dies

Here’s my card. These Ready Rhinos bundle are just too cute ~ I just HAD to make another card with them. And this is my first play with the Radiating Stitched Dies and I’m really liking them too. Both of these are part of the ONLINE EXCLUSIVES found on the online store. You may find that link here. But let’s get back to the card… The card base is Mossy Meadow cut as an A2 tent fold. The largest of the Radiating Stitched Dies was used to die cut Happy Forest Friends DSP and was adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. The next to largest of the Radiating Stitched Dies was used to die cut the Sahara Sand layer and that was added to the card front with dimensionals. The rhino was stamped in Memento ink on a Basic White scrap, then colored with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. Be sure to leave a little white areas for depth :O) The rhino was die cut with the Rhino Ready Dies. To die cut the leaves, I looked for a green DSP that had some variation to it and found it in the Hues of Happiness DSP pack – so… die cut 4 palm leaves, two small & two larger using the Rhino Ready Dies. I also stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on another Basic White scrap (sentiment is from Rhino Ready stamp set) and die cut that with a banner die from the Gingko Branch Dies.

I put dimensionals on the ends of the sentiment banner & Stampin’ Seal in between and placed it on the card. I added the rhino with dimensionals only on his right side, then slipped the palm leaves under the rhino, adding with liquid glue. My final touch for the card front was placing the three Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls for a bit of glam.

Stampin' Up! Rhino Ready & Radiating Stitched Dies, inside

I have to say, I really like the inside of this card. Maybe it’s the texture per the Radiating Stitched Dies. Here’s what I did… I used the largest of the Radiating Stitched Dies to die cut a panel of Old Olive card stock, then die cut with the next smaller Radiating Stitched Die a panel of Basic White. I adhered the remaining palm leaf die cut earlier from the Rhino Ready Dies, with liquid glue. I then stamped the birthday sentiment using the Rhino Ready stamp with Memento ink. Both the Old Olive panel and the Basic White piece were adhered with Stampin’ Seal and the card was complete.

For the envelope I simply added a panel of the Happy Forest Friends DSP to the flap and called it enough. Love the Rhino Ready Bundle and the Radiating Stitched Dies – both from the ONLINE EXCLUSIVES. All other items to make this card are in a catalog.
