Giraffe giggles

It is my uncles birthday this week and so I wanted to make a special card, he is rather tall and his favourite animal is a giraffe so the go green set 30-094 was perfect for the project.  Luckily he has a great sense of humour too, so here is his card.


The inside said "But at his age he could not pedal as far!"

I stamped the image with memento ink and then coloured with copics.  I then printed out my message and mounted it so that it looked like a polaroid.   It was then mounted onto a Clear Skies 10-001 card blank that had been stamped with Brick Wall 40-137, Warm Wishes 40-074 and Pointille 3860J.

I am sure this card will make him smile.

Hugs Cathy

That is priceless! I love the background stamping with Pointille etc.... utterly effective. The Polaroid idea works superbly well too & I'm just full of giggles.
Hope he has a wonderful birthday.

I love how you made the background! I wish the PB Brick stamp fit an entire card base but you used it perfectly!
