In the Wild!

Here's one more sample for the DTGD challenges at SCS. Amy is hosting this one, the theme is all things wild (i.e. animal related). I decided to use Gordie the Giraffe and some fun DCWV Safari Kids paper. I drew my colours for the giraffe from the paper. I wanted a somewhat realistically coloured giraffe, so I stuck with the brown tones. I stamped the greeting several times on the oval to make a fun background, then coloured and cut out the giraffe and placed it over that. I added a bit of ribbon and a flag sentiment and that was that!

Supplies: Stamps: Gordie the Giraffe, Birthday Basics
Paper: Night of Navy, White, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, DCWV Safari Kids DP
Ink: Spring Moss, Prussian Blue, Rich Cocoa
Accessories, etc.: Copics, nestabilities, pop dots


  1. Cute card, I love how you stamped text behind the image and the sentiment on a flag.

  2. So cute and that giraffe stamp!

  3. Oh, how cute! What a great idea to use the birthday word on the oval background...really like that! You're so clever!
