Birthday Giraffe


 
 
       This one is for 2 ... 2 Giraffes and 2nd birthday.  The giraffe stamps are by Bugaboo.  They are so cute.  I used color pencils and markers on them.  I also used the sketch challenge by "Less is More"   for this card.
The designer paper card stock is from Recollections.  I cut that to match the sketch.  I cut the giraffes into two and peeked them out of the circles in different directions.
A bit of faux stitching around the edge with a brown marker.  The number '2' was cut on my machine with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I cut 2 of the 2's - one slightly larger to shadow it but in the same color.  I used glossy accents on the top 2 to give it a puffed acrylic look.
The sentiment is from 'ArtC' and I used StazOn in Timber Brown  and then heat set that with clear embossing powder to give it a bit of shine and accent.
It took a hot minute for all of that glossy accent to dry.
Off it goes for a January birthday .....



Thanks for peeking in and stopping by ....
I hope you're all staying nice and warm.
