Hoppy Birthday

Sorry about the title, bit cheesey, I know, but couldn't resist.

I made this shaped card for my daughter who's in Australia at the moment.  I thought this would make her laugh. How cute is that mommy and baby kangaroo?

I've discovered how to convert SVG's using Inkscape this week so I can now cut these out with my Cameo too- yeah. And this shape was courtesy of SVG Cuts - they have loads of free shapes for you to try.

This is how I did it. I created the card base by welding all the body parts together then duplicated the shape and welded the two parts together at the ears.  I then cut out all the individual shapes using textured cardstock and stuck them all together. Dead simple.

Hoppy you like it!

Great fun card, I am sure she will like it, probably the only kangaroo she has seen since she got there. We were there for 4 weeks and had to go to Sydney zoo to see one in the end.
