Happy Monday! It's the first morning of the Easter break so I've had a lovely start to the week with a lazy morning, stamping in my PJs and then a quick lunch date with the guy (who's still at work this week!) This morning's project I created was this fun, cute birthday card with some Top Dog Dies and Clearly Besotted Stamps goodies. :)
I think whenever it comes to creating cards with cute critters the addition of googly eyes is almost a must! I love how they can bring a character to life. :)
I used the new Top Dog Dies Camera Finishes Die Set to create this giraffe who is slightly too tall to fit into one picture in a photo booth LOL! I hope one day to use this same die with real photographs to create a fun, personal project but until then, stamped images will suffice. :)
- I lined up each section of the photo mats together and stamped the giraffe in one go, capturing a piece of him on every square.
- To achieve the background in each square, I created a mask of the giraffe and sponged Distress Inks over the top. The bottom is simply created by placing a straight-edged piece of paper across the bottom to mask the ground/sky.
- The main panel of white card in the centre looked a little plain so I lightly stamped a ledger background in the same blue ink I used to sponge the sky behind the giraffe. It makes such a difference!
I know I always say it, but thank you *so* much for you visits. Every single one is appreciated! ♥
