MKC Hippo Splash!

Hi, all my crafty bloggy friends! I have another Cameo card to show you today and a video! 

This time I used cuts from Miss Kate Cuttables (this site has a daily freebie!)

The card base is a past frame freebie that I welded together in my Cameo to make it into a card. I did adjust the size a little. Then I added some perforation marks for the fold line which makes the paper really want to fold exactly where it should.  

I'm also using her "Walk on the Wild Side" cut set for the images.

I hope you enjoy the video! Thank you so much for also visiting my YOUTUBE channel, leaving me comments there, and subscribing. I love reading your comments!

I used some papers from scraps and some Stampin' Up papers.

Hippo was inked around the edges with CTMH Gypsy (purple). 
Sun was inked around the edges with CTMH Honey.
Water was inked around the edges with CTMH Pacifica.

Stamp used for SPLASH! is from Cardz TV Stamps "Fun in the Sun" set. The sentiment was stamped using CTMH Pacifica.

I didn't add any buttons or ribbon to this one so that it would be rather flat for easy mailing.

  Don't forget, you can make your own custom sized envelope with any paper you choose using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. It's very economical, and you can purchase it from The Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Castle Shoppe on Facebook. Just click on that link and ask to join so you will be able to browse her photo albums for all the crafty goodies she has there.

Here's a video tutorial I made a while back showing how the envelope punch board works. I did forget to mention in the video that the punch that notches out the envelope for easy folding, also rounds the corners for prettier envelopes. 

You guys are awesome! Thanks for stopping by.
