Black and White Zebra Birthday Card

A Black and White Zebra Birthday Card is quick and easy to make, plus it’s great to celebrate a friend’s birthday, no matter what age they are!

This plaid paper has so many different color patterns, so I was super happy to find a black and white one that’ll match this zebra birthday card! Then I tore it down the side so there weren’t sharp edges of squares and rectangles.

I designed this card as part of the design team for Joy of Sets. Today starts our monthly challenge for October — how did that happen already??

Give the challenge a try! I’d love it if you’d join in by picking any row, column, or diagonal row of this Tic-Tac-Toe grid for your project and link it here!

I chose the top row of Black, Torn, and Stitches. Black and white is one of my favorite color combos to work with. Then I tore the DSP, and used a stitched die to cut out and pop up the party animal!

The recipe for how to make this Zebra Birthday card is below.


How to make a Black and White Zebra Birthday Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Basic Black: 4 1/4” x 11”, scored in half at 5 1/2” for a top fold card base. Scrap for large circle.
  • DSP: 3” x 5 1/2”. Carefully tear down the long side.
  • Whisper White: Scrap for circle.

Emboss the sentiment:

  • Using VersaMark ink, stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder, tap off the excess. Then, heat until it’s melted and shiny.

Stamp the Zebra!

  • With black ink, stamp the zebra on a scrap of whisper white cardstock. Die cut out with the 2nd largest stitched circle die. Next, adhere it to a large die-cut black circle.
  • Glue your torn DSP to the card front. Make sure you leave space for your sentiment!
  • Use dimensionals to adhere the zebra to the card front next.
  • Lastly, add any colorful embellishments!
