ssink - two step stamping child's birthday card!

It's Technique Tuesday at the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog and I have a quick and easy card to showcase that technique. I used the Zoo Babies stamp set and wanted the bird to sit on the back of the rhinoceros. This is where the two-step stamping comes in. I first stamped the rhino and then the bird on top of him. The set I used was clear mount, but my perfectionistic ways wouldn't allow me just to "wing it", so I pulled out my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line the bird up just right!


Two little buddies hanging out together!

I used the Circle Card Thinlits, so the card swings open to reveal the second part of the birthday greeting on the back with just enough room for someone to sign their name.
