Gina the giraffe has been waiting patiently to make an appearance. Well, maybe not so patiently, but today is her day. She brought along two friends in all their black and white glory. They politely declined to be colored, considering the color challenge they wanted to enter.

Animal Outing giraffe named Gina

The color challenge is at TGIF, using the colors of Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pineapple Punch.


Gina thought that black and white would make a nice contrast, showing off the three colors. Her friends agreed, and who am I to argue?

Going along with the giraffe’s desire for white, I gave them a Thick Whisper White card base. I also added a  layer of white, embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, so they would have plenty to eat.

Between the card base and embossed leaves is a layer of the first challenge color, Grapefruit Grove. The second color is Lemon Lime Twist, which I used to make branches, cut with a die from the Animal Friends die set. And, the third color is Gina’s favorite, Pineapple Punch. There is a giraffe print die in the Animal Friends die set, which I used to cut this piece from Pineapple Punch cardstock.  It is oh, so, cute!

Before gluing everything down, Gina wanted me to look at a lay-out she saw at Fab Friday. This would be perfect!


For the sentiment, they decided on “You’re the Best” from the Label Me Pretty stamp set. I stamped it with Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White, and cut it with a Layering Circles die.

We used a piece of Grapefruit Grove from Nature’s Poem DSP to decorate the envelope, and Gina feels her card is ready to send.
