Are you looking for a cute, but easy card idea today? I give you the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Go To Greetings combination to try. With a little fussy cutting you will have a zoo-ful of animal images to combine into some really fun cards! I had so much fun to design these cards for you. The Zoo Crew DSP coordinates with Pool Party, Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie cardstocks, with a pop of Basic Black.

This set of 4 cards are very easy to make as children’s greeting cards to your kiddos can send them to their grandparents, or you can share a set of these cards with grandparents so they can send to their grandchildren. That’s what so awesome about paper crafting, the sky is the limit on how you decide to create your card designs. The best part is these cards will mail easily and should only need one USPS forever stamp.

Enjoy the photos, supplies list, but be sure to go all the way to the bottom as there is a surprise there for you!

Don’t you just love the cute little fox on his/her scooter? You can add additional coloring to the images. It is hard to see here, but I colored the fox’s scarf with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. The tires were colored with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.
