C4C-380 Zoo Gift Card Trio

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our April 2017 Hostess is Frances Byrne and our Guest Designer is Kristine Reynolds. You can see Kristine's blog HERE.  

Here is Frances' challenge:  "Apparently today is Zoo Lovers Day ... so feature animals on your card wild or not."

The Great-Grandparents wanted to give our kids/grandkids Zoo Gift Cards last year for Christmas, so I got the gift cards ordered and made these cute Zoo themed Gift Card Holders to put the gift cards in.

They are fairly basic but they did look cute with the gift cards in them and the kids/grandkids liked them. I used Zoo print patterned paper and fussy cut designs for the card fronts from a sheet in the same stack. Those designs were then adhered to the cards with an Action Wobble so they bob and wobble around.

Inside each of the cards I used the Sleigh Gift Card Holder, a Pop it Ups die by Karen Burniston.  Instead of mounting the sleigh though, I added fussy cut embellishments to the Pop-Up portion. This is such a versatile die!

Below you can see how nicely a gift card fits into the slots that cut with the die.

Card #2 ...

Card #3 ... those panels bobbing around on the fronts really looked cute and the Great Grand kids loved them.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C380.
