I created this card for last week’s Inspiration challenge.  For my sample I chose this darling stuffed giraffe.  The color scheme for this card came from last week’s  Ribbon Reel Challenge.  The sketch is from the current CASE study challenge.

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the giraffe die from MFT’s Spectacular Circus stamp and die set. The matching giraffe stamp was stamped over it in Wheat VersaMagic ink. A piece of Pink Paislee Portfolio patterned paper was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before the circle was stitched to a slightly bigger white cardstock circle.

A 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock was embossed with the Simplicity M-Bossabilities folder. The bottom corners were rounded and a the edges were faux stitched with a Signo white gel pen. The layer was adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock folded in half before the partial circle was adhered to the left hand side. The giraffe was adhered to the circle with foam adhesive squares.

One of the sentiment from Circus Spectacular was stamped in Gray Flannel Memento ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut with one of MFT’s Sentiment Strips die-namics die. One of the sides was cut straight and the sentiment was adhered underneath the circle with Scor-Tape on the edges and two foam adhesive squares on top of each other in the center.

Stars were cut out Solar White cardstock as well as the same paper that was used for the circle with SimonSaysStamp exclusive Holiday Shapes die. The stars were adhered to the card and topped with rhinestones. A rhinestone on each end of the sentiment strip finishes off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
