Are you ready for some cuteness overload? I just love these little critters! Everytime I go to an aquarium, I look for the otters. They are so fun to watch as they frolic and play. I could stand there and watch for hours. And I could spend hours playing with this stamp set too! This is the first card I made:
See what I mean? Total cuteness! I used another one of the stamp sets that you can choose for FREE with a $50 product purchase during Sale-A-Bration, which runs through February 28th, so there is still time for you to get your hands on this Awesome Otters Stamp Set.
And I also used two other FREE products that you can choose from in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper and Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper. Both are 6” x 6” and you get 48 pieces in the pkg – 4 each of 12 double sided designs.
I just love the bright colors in the Sunshine and Rainbow papers. I choose the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper because it looked a little like swirled water.
I added a little Wink of Stella to the “water” to make it sparkle plus a few Iridescent Rhinestones too. The tiny hearts on the Sunshine and Rainbow papers made this a perfect little Valentine card too….but without all the traditional red and pink. Or just send it to someone who you think is “Otterly Awesome”!
I also decided to have a little otter pop up in the inside of the card too.
If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies that you will need:
- Awesome Otters Stamp Set
- Dies: Layering CIrcles and Hippo & Friends (sentiment tag)
- 2 1/4” Circle Punch (retired) – Optional
