Giraffe Birthday Card
This card is being entered in the Perfectly Rustics – PR Design Challenge No. 39 – Animals, where we are to “go wild” with animals in our creations. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2015/01/12/prdc-no-39-animals/)
The Stamp I used for this card is called “Cling Giraffe Savanna” by Stampendous which was stamped on white card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink. The whole scene is on the one stamp. The original image has the word “Giraffe” in the swirls by his neck. I masked this and stamped the “Best Wishes” Greeting which is a Gina K Designs stamp from the “A Wish For You” mini stamp set. The scene was colored with Copic Markers (E51, E33, E35, E37, YG97, YG99, and E44) and was inked with Memento desert sand and rich cocoa inks.
The background printed paper is DCWV “All Dressed Up Leopard Chic” which I lightly inked with the desert sand ink to make it match a bit better. It was cut with a Spellbinders “Labels Eight” die. The dark chocolate panel (Gina K) was embossed with a Darice “Stripes” embossing folder, and black card stock was used for the mats. The card base is Gina K sandy beach.
Burlap, raffia ribbon and jute, and a few metallic stickers embellishments by K & Company finished it off.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
