Stampin' Up Wild Cats Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome back to another week of the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop!  This week we have a color challenge.  We are to pick at least 3 of the colors to create a card.  I used Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Evening Evergreen and Mossy Meadow along with Stampin' Up Wild Cats Bundle from the Annual Catalog.

Today's card is a double Z fold card.  I started with a Evening Evergreen base cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at: 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".  I folded the card stock in half then the front panel back onto itself.
I adhered panels of Stampin' Up In The Wild DSP to Crushed Curry mats.  I layered the mats to the card base.  
I scored and folded a piece of Crushed Curry in the same as the card base.
I stamped a tiger from Stampin' Up Wild Cats Stamp Set using Crushed Curry ink and Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Basic White.  I stamped plants with Mossy Meadow ink.  
I die cut the plants and tiger with Stampin' Up Big Cats Dies.  
I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Special Moments Stamp Set with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Basic White.  I stamped leaves with Evening Evergreen on the bottom of the Basic White.  I adhered the Basic White to a Basic Black mat.
I adhered the plants and tiger to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  
I adhered the card front to the Crushed Curry Z Fold.  
I adhered the Z Fold piece to the Evening Evergreen.

I stamped leaves with Evening Evergreen ink on a piece of Basic White.  The sentiment was stamped with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink.  I adhered the Basic White to a Basic Black mat that was adhered to the inside.

Hope you enjoyed today's card, up next is Amy Koenders.  Thanks so much for hopping by!
