How About a Long-neck!


No....not a long-neck beer!!!  Just a long-neck giraffe!  I was rustling around tying to find something in my craft room the other day and ran across this jungle type print paper!   I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to use this cute little giraffe stamp from CTMH (In the Wild).  I stamped him once and then stamped again and cut him out AND popped him up for some dimension (Whew...a lot of "ands" in that sentence!).  I also popped up the entire panel after adding the square brads and bakers twine.  The background around the giraffe is sponged using some Really Rust ink.

I've been out of town the last few days and haven't gotten to visit blogs!  I'll be playing catch up for the next day or two in order to visit all your creations! 

Thanks for stopping by........

Love your long neck! (A long neck beer would be pretty nice on one of these 90+ days we've been having.

I am a big fan of giraffes... don't know why? So I simply adore this card with it's jungle print paper and the pop up giraffe. The square brads look perfect. Hope you had a good time.

Hugs,

Fabulous card Lynn! And yes, I immediately thought of a long-neck beer. Is it 4 o'clock yet?

Oh now that was funny! LOL! YOu had my attention! :) Although I'm more of a Margarita girl myself - hee hee!! This is super! Love the perfectly matched paper and the little side embellies! We are on the same wavelength this week! I just stamped out a giraffe for a card, but it will take me forever to actually pull the card together! (busy week ahead, lol) Hugs!

This is such a fun card, love the print behind that long neck :) Reminds me of Africa! The brads and twine are a perfect touch for this theme. So when is your first comedy routine, I want tickets.

Love the giraffe and the dp is perfect as a background. The twine really sets things off! Playing catch up myself today. I've missed visiting all my favorite blogs!

I love me that animal background paper - and the square brads. Perfect for this image. Love that you kept the layout clean and simple. It really allowed the focal image and the background DSP to be the stars.
Love it
