Alex Syberia Designs | It's Your Birthday

Hi ASD friends!

Have I got a cutie to share with you today!

Oh goodness, when I saw the Giraffe-ic stamp and die set I must confess, I did a little squeal. Have you seen them?

I recently made a shaker card using both giraffes which I will share on Instagram soon, but I wanted to share this design with you today.

I had some wood effect paper in my stash, so I decided to use this as a backdrop for my scene. First though, I matted the paper onto 110LB cardstock and splattered it with white paint.

I stamped the giraffe and the greenery on Copic friendly cardstock (I tend to use Neenah Solar White 110LB) and then coloured the images. Giraffe-YR12, YR24 & Y26. Greenery-YG11, YG67 & G21. The large greenery image, can also be used as a cloud image, which is pretty cool and versatile.

I then pulled out the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set that was released in the Kickstarter campaign and heat embossed white sentiments onto black cardstock. The font co-ordinated and complimented the fun of the card perfectly.

Using various heights in dimension, I bought the scene together. To finish, I added some orange hearts and gentle highlights with my white gel pen.

I hope I have inspired you today my friends. It's not a difficult card sketch to replicate, so why not go give it a try?

Remember to keep an eye out on my Instagram too for a Giraffe shaker card @cherylespiecreates

I love the neck on this giraffe! All graceful lines, and the cartoon style face is so expressive! Oh, and I love your composition with him, emphasizing that long, long neck!
