Sometimes you have an image that needs to play hide and seek. To somehow peek around another image that is on the card. Like the 2nd rhino on my card in the Birth-Yay stamp set from MFT – the rhino on the left is part of one large stack of animals in one stamp…but the extra rhino is just by himself.

Always be thinking about which image is in the front. In this scene, the head of the rhino on the right is in the front. Then the other rhino, then behind it all is the back of the rhino. In this case, there was only a little curve-of-the back that could have been stamped, but a pen did the job easily.

The sentiment stamp I picked didn’t really fit on the front nicely…so I put it inside. There are lots of birthday sentiments in this set, but I used the more generic one so I can send this card as any kind of celebration!

The grasses, by the way, were just scribbled Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils which I smooshed around with a baby wipe to get that nice soft blending!

The finished card is just mounted on layers of cardstock. Super cute!
