First, and foremost, I am so happy the African animal silhouette sets are back!! Today I am sharing a gift card wallet I made using the newest Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company silhouette stamp set Wild and Free. 

 
Once I had downloaded, printed off, and cut out my wallet template, I stamped my images in memento tuxedo black ink onto some recycled glossy photo paper before stippling poppy, summer sun and the following Tim Holtz inks: milled lavender, dusty concord, spiced marmalade, and wild honey.  After I was happy with the look of the stippling, I layered the main image onto poppy and black card stocks before adding Making Memories black baby brads.  The background is stamped using the zebra stripe with poppy ink.

For the inside of my wallet, I stamped several of the silhouette images in poppy ink and a couple of the sayings in memento tuxedo black ink.  The final touch was to tuck in a Starbucks gift card and add a velcro closure.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs and leave some love for a chance to win today's set.

  24. Looks like one very hot day in Africa! Just lovely, too. The leaves of the tree seem to sparkle, or am I seeing things? I like it, anyway!

  25. The remark above of "I like it, anyway" didn't sound the way I intended. I meant that I like it whether the tree leaves sparkle or not. Didn't want anyone to think I didn't like the sparkle effect because I do.
