Happy Saturday! I love Saturdays because I can always find a few minutes to do some stamping!
This card is made for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Where the Wild Things Are for Friday October 12. Obviously the theme is Animals and once I read that I knew exactly what animal I would be using. You see, I love giraffes! When we were on our family vacation to California, my husband laughed because he says I took more photos of the giraffes at the Wild Life Park than anything else, including Disney Land. LOL!!
To make this card, I took this image from In the Wild (SU) and stamped it onto glossy cardstock. Then, using a sponge, I covered the giraffe itself with Summer Sun (SU) and also made a bit of a sun in the top left using this color. Then, I took Pumpkin Pie (SU) and sponged all around the giraffe. I added a the sentiment using some foam letter stamps that I got from Michael's for $1.50. A few black brads and the main image was done. I matted it on black and then on some Karen Foster design paper called "Shades of Yellow". Then, I matted all of that on this cool weaved material that I got from my local scrapbook store. It is so cool and I thought it pulled all the elements of this card together. The card base is So Saffron (SU).
Thanks for dropping in to visit.
