To start this card, I cut a 8.5″ x 5.5.” piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock. I cut a 5.5″ x 2″ strip of Mango Melody Cardstock to adhere to the front of the card.

Next, I stamped the meerkats onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Black Momento Ink. Make sure to use Momento ink so that the ink doesn’t run when you color in your meerkats! I colored in the meerkat family using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  TIP: Add the darker Stampin’ Blend around the edges of the meerkats to add some dimension to the image!

I used a Gray Granite Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker for the gravel and a Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers for the grass. 

I cut out the meerkat family using the large Stitched So Sweetly Die which gives the image a nice postcard looking effect!

I stamped a birthday hat from the stamp set in Mango Melody Ink, cut it out with my Paper Snips and adorned it on one of my meerkats!

I also stamped the lizard, colored him in with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut him out with Paper Snips. I attached him to the corner of the postcard using Stampin Dimensionals. 

For the greeting, I stamped the “From all of us” greeting on Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and cut out the greeting and flagged the end. I cut out some paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and made matching flags to fan behind the greeting. Finally, I embellished the flags with a bow made from a bit of twine.
