Heart2Heart Challenge - Background Stamping

I chose a bright and playful look for this week's challenge at Heart2Heart -- it's a card for a new young daddy. The "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is stamped on the envelope. A card like this could be used for just about any celebration!

For the tri-color background stamping on both sides of the cut CS, I used the heart, flower, and "I love you now & forever" circle stamps from the Sensational Seals. First I stamped the circle stamps; then I added the smaller stamps and simply kept rotating them all on the bright white CS.

I used the swing card (flip flap) design -- you can find a tutorial HERE.

Card recipe:  (all CTMH products except the curly style gift ribbon I cut for lion's mane & tail)

Animal Cookies papers Level 2
Animal Cookies Stickease (red stripe behind lion)
Stamps: Life's A Jungle; Sensational Seals
Inks: Tulip; Sunflower; Clover Meadow
Square Window Charm
Foam Squares
Chocolate marker & watercolor pen (lion's nose)
