Feeling a bit Giraffey…

Giraffe Card

I am back with a New Card to share.  I was feeling a bit Giraffey LOL! when my son asked me if I would make a Special Card for him to give to his Girlfriend for her Birthday.  When I asked him what kind of card he would like and what he would like me to put on it, he said she Loves Giraffes and the color Purple.  So I new I had the perfect stamp and paper so I went to work creating.

First I colored this My Besties Sweet Giraffe stamp by Sherri Baldy using my Distress Inks on Water Color Paper.  Then I created a card base that is 7 1/2″ tall by 5 1/2″ wide using my favorite white textured cardstock by Neenah and added a layer of irridescent glitter using my favorite glitter sprays from Crafter’s Companion. Then I layered it from the bottom up using the following – 7 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ Lavendar Cardstock, 7″ x 5″ Digital Giraffe Print Purple Background Paper which I also sprayed with a layer of irridescent glitter. As you know I love dimension so I popped up each layer using pop squares.  I cut a Pretty Frame using Spellbinders S5-189 Majestic Labels Twenty-Five and S5-077 Labels Twenty-Five, I popped it up using pop squares. I cut the giraffe out using Spellbinders S5-026 Labels Twenty die number 5 and popped him up on top of the frame.  I added 2 swirls from Spellbinders S5-034 Parisian Accents and topped it off with a tag from Spellbinders S4-235 Fancy Tags One.

Bow-it-All Bow

I colored some White pearls using my Dusty Concord Distress Ink and added them around the card.  I created a Brown Organza Triple Loop Double Layered Bow using the Bow-it-All and made a pretty Stick Pin to add to my Bow.  I had so much fun creating this card and Sherri Baldy’s My Besties stamps make me smile everytime I add them to my projects. I hope you are getting ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday and Remember Gobble till you Wobble!  Wishing you A Very Happy Thanksgiving and Enjoy your Day with Family and Friends.
