Hippest Hippo Tightrope Acrobat

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you our finest high-wire performer!

She has grace and style! She’s the hippest hippo acrobat!

Both the Hippest Hippos and the Hippos dies are selections you can get free with a $50 order. Sale-a-Bration products are limited and may run out before the promotion ends. If you need both, I would recommend getting them both as soon as possible! You could make the card without the umbrella, but I think it adds a lot. There are a lot of fun accessories in the die set! I’ve seen lots of other animals wearing the glasses!

I usually design my cards on my own. Sometimes I find a layout I like and use it with different stamps and colors. This card was CASE’d from Dawn Griffith who CASE’d the layout from a card by Ascencion Guzman. I did change Dawn’s card a bit. I changed the colors and the Designer Series Paper. I also changed the ballerina to a tight rope walker.

I also changed the sizes of the panels so that the white inside layer doesn’t show when the card is closed. And I wanted the hippo to be more upright. I made the top section narrower to give more room to write. The bottom panel is quite a bit larger. You could certainly stamp a greeting on scrap Basic White card stock and either punch it out or cut it out to add to the large bottom panel.
