I found these wonderful images at Clip Art Garden. Aren't they fun? I've got to head back and look at all the other goodies - I just didn't have time earlier. I decided on a step card to showcase these fabulous circus animals.
This card was super easy to make. Here's what you need:
You'll need four strips of decorative paper. I love this polka paper it is from White Coffee Designs and is from the Confetti Polka Dot set. One strip is 1 3/4" x 4 3/4" and the other three are 1" x 4 3/4".
Score the cardstock at:
1 1/4 "
After you've scored the cardstock, fold it accordion style. The front should fold down.
Now you're ready to decorate!
On this card the bear, elephant and lion are sized at about 3 7/8" tall. The tent is about 4 7/8" tall.
Adhere the polka paper on each section. I used pop dots to adhere the animals to get a little more depth. If you have a cutting machine you can import these images in and it will cut them for you. (If you have a Silhouette and need help on how to do this - email me, I'm happy to help!)
The lion is holding a flaming ring and I die cut a sentiment to fit it. You could personalize it - for example for Kim's grandson I put: Look who's 2!
I adore the sweet details on these animals: like the elephant's nose. This card is perfect for a birthday, It looks cute folded up and also spread out! Let's celebrate!
