Hi there stampers!  I have a fun card for you today featuring the new Animal Outings bundle from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  This stamp set is just adorable with all the fun critter images and the coordinating dies make it super easy to cut out the images.  The new Subtle Embossing Folder has to be one of my favorite new products and I have been using it a lot.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock that I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out three circles.  I used those same dies along with the Layering Circles Framelits to create the black frames for each circle.  After cutting out the circles from my panel, I inked up the Subtle Embossing Folder with Old Olive ink and ran this through my big shot to give the panel some color and fun texture.

I then stamped all the images onto thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I used the coordinating dies to cut all the images out.  I sponged on some Balmy Blue ink onto a top folding A2 card base made from thick Whisper White.  I then adhered the embossed panel along with the black circle onto the card base.  I then arranged all my critters and branches into the circle cut outs using dimensionals and glue dots.  I heat embossed the sentiment with White Emboss Powder onto Basic Black cardstock and adhered to the front of the card.
