Wild Giraffe

This card is doing double duty this week. It is my entry for the Monday Greeting Card challenge over at the Outlawz, and also my entry for the Mix It Up Monday challenge over at Stamp TV.


The challenge for The Outlawz was to add brads and one new item. Well, the brads are my new item. I just got them and I love the beveled look of them. But, if that's not enough, the craft card stock is also new. The challenge for Stamp TV was to use distressing. This card was stamped using Gina K. Designs Wild About You set. I stamped the giraffe on paper that was created using the shaving cream technique. I actually did 2 giraffes, cut them out and glued one down and then popped the other one on top for dimension. I stamped the sentiment in black, added the brads and then distressed the edges with brown ink. I matted that on a sliver of black card stock and then layered it on a piece of card stock designed using shaving cream and ink. I used a corner punch to "notch" the corners and then used black fibers around the edges. I think it makes it look like I matted it on 2 pieces of shaving cream card stock. Lastly, I layered it on dark brown card stock. Thank you for looking.

  4. Hi Sasan, Great cards! Thanks for the invite to your blog. I especially like this card. The black fuzzy yarn looks cool with the giraffe.

  5. Very pretty safari looking. Have to chuckle at the name: Wild Giraffe...is there any other kind? LOL I just see things differently, sorry. BTW, do your cards like weigh a ton, or what? Double giraffes, double layers plus cardstock, all that metal. Just curious. I am sure you have your "A" list, and "B" list of recipeints, like Sarah Aknook mentioned, too funny! Thanks for sharing...YOUR ability to mix media, and your creative spirit are both just amazing!
