Hi There! (IC148)

For today's Inspiration Challenge, we were to base the design of our card on one of the articles of clothing at Harrilu. The minute I saw the home page with that cute giraffe, I knew what I wanted to do. Their giraffe is on a onesie, and it is so cute! It's such a whimsical image!!

There are several punches involved in the making of this card. I also used two Cuttlebug folders. The base card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of So Saffron that is embossed with the Forest Branches folder. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip Taffeta and has the matted scalloped square hanging from the knot. The main image is made entirely from punches. The background is embossed with the Tiny Bubbles folder and sponged. To make the giraffe, I used So Saffron and Chocolate Chip card stock. I sponged the Saffron with Chocolate Chip. Here's what I used:
  • Neck: 1/2" strip of So Saffron with 1/2" Circles punched from Chocolate Chip and cut in half
  • Head: Key Tag Punch, Small Oval Punch (save pieces punched from sides of head)
  • Snout: Key Tag Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle (Punch a crescent and trim ends for smile and save the 1/8" pieces.)
  • Ears: Small Oval punched pieces from sides of head
  • Horns: Horizontal Slot Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch (1/8" pieces from snout)
  • Eyes: 1/4" Circle Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch

The main panel is popped up, and I used a Rhinestone Brad on the scalloped square sentiment. This was a fun card to make! All materials are from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by today!!!
