Hippo Birthday!


I wanted to make a fun birthday card and came up with this idea.

Here I’m CASEing a card with elephant by Shona Chambers for Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer Challenge.


I used the same layout and bubbles, but went on with idea of creating a pull tab card, so that hippo appears from his pond when recipient pulls the tab on top. I made a couple more pictures to show it in action. You see only pond at first…


And then little hippo appears to wish ‘Happy Birthday’.


Everything is colored with pencils and I outlined bubbles on top, so that they resemble clouds and don’t look the same as ‘water’ in my ‘pond’.

I used slider channel and disks to make it work. All panels are attached with foam adhesive, so that there is enough room for sliding hippo and pull tab.
