The DSP is cut to 3-3/4" by 5" and adhered to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Berry Burst Card Stock mat. I wrapped a couple of lengths of Night of Navy Baker's Twine around these pieces before adhering them to a Night of Navy Card Stock card base.
Next, I stamped the rhinoceros from the "Animal Outing" stamp set in Night of Navy Ink onto Smoky Slate Card Stock. I cut him out with one of the Layering Squares Framelits and adhered him to a Night of Navy scalloped square that I also cut with the Layering Squares Framelits. I colored the bird with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers.
I stamped a sentiment from the "Animal Outing" set in Night of Navy onto Smoky Slate, cut it out with a smaller Layering Square Framelit, and adhered it to a Night of Navy scalloped square, also cut with the same framelit set.
I finsihed the card by adhering the stamped elements with Stampin' Dimensionals. I think the textured DSP in the background really pulls the design together--and the pops of Melon Mambo make it sing!
