You Giraffe Me Crazy

Today is our last day of the Stampendous "Let's Go Wild" theme as we showcase our newest animals to hit our line-up!  I have to admit, I'm pretty wild about them, too!  Did you see what I did there?  LOL!  I'm a big fan of giraffes, there's something so sweet about their faces and, to be honest, they're pretty silly looking.  Only in a good way, though!  Here's my card for today:

Here’s what I used to create this card:

PenPattern Giraffe
Memento™ Rich Cocoa Ink by Tsukineko®
Memento™ Toffee Crunch Ink by Tsukineko®
Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger®
Tim Holtz® Tumbled Glass Distress Ink by Ranger®
Pear Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Iced Cocoa Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Copic® Markers (W4, W7; E31, E33, E35, E41, E25, E30; G21, G24, G28; YG63)
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here’s what I did to create this card:

Stamp image and color.
Stamp sentiment onto image.
Trim to desired size.
Add distress inks as shown.
Create A2 card base with a tent fold.
Trim a tan panel for the background.
Lightly stamp “dirt” across bottom of tan panel.
Adhere all layers as shown.
Die cut one leafy branch and two petite ferns from green scraps.
Cut apart and glue on pieces of die cuts as shown.
Add simple shading to die cut pieces.

Here’s a list of my teammates that are playing along with me today:

In case you're wondering about the cute dog card at the tail end of our wild animals, it's because our amazing Kristine was skipped on the list last Friday.  Her card is so totally adorable and it really deserves the added attention!  After all, the poor doggy was skunked by a wild animal!  

That's it for today!  I appreciate your stopping by to have a look.  I'll see you again soon with more fun cards created by me for the best stamp company around!  Have a wonderful day!



  1. Oh my word! Love this to pieces! The extra grass coming off the image onto the card base is clever and those colors are classic! Thank you so much for sharing your wild projects this week!

  2. Giraffes are so cool and come in so many shades and patterns. I think yours looks great!

  3. I love the colors you chose for this card and the added grass!

  4. Fabulous card and especially loved the Giraffe and all of your lovely details!
