Product of the Week: Hippest Hippos (Day 2)

 I'm back today with another cute and colorful card featuring the adorable Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and Hippo Dies.  Remember, each day this week, I'll be sharing a different project made with these FREE Sale-a-Bration products!  You can earn the stamp set or dies FREE when you place an order of $50 or more!

Today's card has a very simple layout that really lets the hippo be the star.  The sketch and dimensions for this card are from a YouTube Channel called Call Me {Crafty} Al.  It is the November 2020 sketch.  The patterned paper is the Butterfly Kisses DSP from our Annual Catalog.  The colors are so bright and fun...they clearly look great with both butterflies AND hippos!

This was not the first time that I paired this fun sketch with the Butterfly Kisses DSP.

I also used them for my Best Butterflies Card Class, one of the classes in my Free Online Card Class series on Facebook.  If you haven't joined that group, I hope you'll click on the link at the bottom of this post and join the fun! 

The measurements for this card are:

  • Calypso Coral: 4-1/4" x 11, scored and folded at 5-1/2
  • Basic White: 3-1/4" x 4-1/2"; scraps for hippo and punched label
  • DSP: 1-3/4" x 2-3/4" (floral); 1-1/8" x 2-3/4" (hearts); 1-3/8" x 3" (stripe)
Did you notice that the hippo was a different color?  Yesterday's hippo was Crumb Cake, but today's is Smoky Slate!  Both of these work well, but I think my favorite color for the hippo is Gray Granite.  (I'll share my favorite hippo card with you tomorrow, using Gray Granite!)

If you haven't guessed, I think these hippos are a MUST HAVE! But, just in case you're not convinced yet, I still have a few ideas to share with you this week. :)

Remember, you can get more ideas for these cuties by watching my Hippest Hippos video in my Free Online Card Classes group on Facebook!  
This, and all of my past classes, are all available there under Media > Videos.
