Ouch! You're How Old?

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have another Animation Card to share with you using the exclusive Simon Says Stamp "Animation" Clear Stamp set by Uchi's Designs which was part of their May 2017 Card Kit.

Last week I received the Animation Grid dies that I ordered from Uchi's Designs so I wanted to try one of them out. This allows you to die cut the grid out of colored cardstock and use matching colors to ink up the animation image.

Here is a quick video to show my card in action.

For best results die cutting the animation grid I found was using the metal adaptor plate. I tried using my precision plate but for some reason that wouldn't cut the grid correctly whereas the other option did. I am loving the new animation grids, although I wish they were a little larger for the bigger animation images ... maybe one day.

For the inside of my card I stamped two more of the animation cacti images and also some birthday sentiments. I looked online for some suitable cacti sentiments, none of which I decided to use. I figured ouch was the best option to be able to make my card suitable for a birthday.
