Open Giraffe

Finally the last card from Open House last weekend! Sorry it's taken me so long to get them all up! I was exhausted after last weekend, and with the heat it's been hard to keep up around here! This one was fairly quick, especially after the balloon card!!


The giraffe is from a fun new set called Zoo Review. Just as it sounds, Zoo Animals! I always like to try and do one masculine card and this fit the bill! Card base is Soft Suede with a So Saffron background. On the Saffron, we first stamped the new Netting background with So Saffron. then we textured it in the Big Shot with the new Houndstooth embossing folder. Sponge the edge with Soft Suede before attaching. The Soft Suede tag is cut with the Big Shot and the Two Tags die. At the bottom is a saying from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The giraffe was stamped with Soft Suede on Naturals White. We colored him gently with the So Saffron marker, then came back and did the spots with Soft Suede ink and a blender pen. The marker was too dark! Sponge the edge of the giraffe, attached to So Saffron and layer on the tag. At the top, we knotted an Early Espresso Baker's Twine through the hole for accent.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back Thursday with a new ColorLab creation!!

I have had this card bookmarked for a while with plans to do a Zoo Review class. The class is this weekend and your card will be a hit. Thanks for sharing and for the tip about using blender pens!
