What do you do when your husband needs some “get well” cheer? You find the cutest stamp set, Back On Your Feet, and make him a card! He’s going in for shoulder replacement surgery this week, so I’ll be making several cards, especially for him.
The first thing I did was stamp the giraffe in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, he was fussy cut (cut by hand), colored with Stampin’ Blends in Light Mango Melody and Light Soft Suede, and placed on Dimensionals.
For his background, I began with a Crumb Cake card base, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. Hammered Metal? Hah! In this case it’s animal skin! Prior to embossing I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to the cut the white cardstock. A second Stitched Rectangles Die was used to make the smaller rectangle, which I backed with Crumb Cake Cardstock, giving it a 1/16″ border.
TIP: I used left-over edges of Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the smaller rectangle.
The giraffe’s grass was made with 3″ strips of Granny Apple Green Cardstock and a Special Days Die. This is a great die for grass, and you can make it as wide as you want.
I used three, narrow, strips to follow this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.
The sentiment is from Back On Your Feet, and fits the giraffe perfectly, doesn’t it? The sentiments make this set especially cute! You can see the entire set in my Product List, and I’ll be making more cards with it in the near future.
I stamped “This is knot good” in Soft Suede Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. It was just the right size to fit along his neck.
