Have a Roaring Birthday

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing an interactive card for my design team day!  The new Slimline dies certainly made it easy to create this fun card.

I used the Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle Slimline die set to cut out the double stitched rectangle and the lift flaps.  I cut out an extra lift flap in white card stock and cut it off on the attached end.  I also cut out the Safari Lion, Safari Rhino, Safari Giraffe, Safari Zebra and Safari Camel.  The grass border is from the Grass Slimline die set.

The safari animals were cut out in both white and colored card stock and shaded with some inks.  The first step in my design process was to layer the lift flap die cut on top of the the grassy background.  This piece was then adhered onto my card base.
Next, the sweet animals were nestled inside of the lift flap frames.  I trimmed the giraffe slightly so that he would fit.
The lion and rhino were adhered on top of the right and left side flaps. 
I stamped a couple of sentiments along with a lion image on the white card stock flap and adhered it to the other flap adding a fun element to my card.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:
