Giraffe birthday card
I have decided to post this card I made a short while ago as I've been so busy in the last few weeks what with the new baby and christmas. I am looking forward to getting back to my craft room as I've loads of new stuff to use. I got 4 new MS punches for christmas as well as 18 kinds of card candy that I spent hours sorting into the correct colours (sad, I know!) I normally just get the white ones and colour them in with my promarkers but the colours are more intense on the proper coloured ones. I also bought myself 2 DCWV nana's nursery in both boy and girl a few weeks ago that I haven't used yet that are absolutely gorgeous. I've been really good and not looked at what's available in the sales online or in shops as I've got far too much stuff as it is! I have just bought myself a fab new watermark so I can watermark my photos of my creations which was about £2.00 from Lynne Salmon available here I thought it was a good idea now I do design work for Joanna Sheen and for cardmaking magazines. I'm just waiting for it be be emailed in the next day or so.
The C5 card is made using a giraffe clipart that I found on google images that I coloured in with my promarkers. I layered the images and attached a parcel button which was a creative raftime flatback. I used a little chalk to make the rosy cheeks as it gives a softer look than the promarkers. The papers are from funky fairy downloadables which sadly is no more. Flowers cut using an x-cut flower punch. Pearls, ribbons, fibres, card candy and diamantes from stash. I made this card for my nan to give my auntie as she loves giraffes.
I will be entering this into the following challenges:-
