Stand Out, Stay Awesome!

Good morning Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne with the Tuesday edition of the blog.  My card for you today features the adorable giraffe from the new Safari release.  Between the Circus and the Safari releases I'm not sure which I'm more excited about since both feature dies which make wonderful cards.  And right now the store is having a President's Day sale so make sure you visit - after viewing my card, of course!

I started this card with a sketch I found on Pinterest, but as often happens with me I diverged so much you would not recognize the sketch.  But the oval and the rectangle are still there!  I just added another rectangle, a sentiment strip, placed things at an angle and changed the layering order.  For me it's about inspiration.

I have some fun, jungle looking patterned paper that goes well with these dies, so I used it here.  I also cut my giraffe from solid cardstock scraps rather than coloring with inks.  Depending on the look I want to achieve, I vary the way I "color" the images. 

I added some foliage from the Safari Adventure Gang dies and some linen thread behind my giraffe.  Then I popped him up on foam dots for a bit of dimension.

I thought this card and sentiment would work for many occasions, so I left the inside blank until I give it out.  I hope you've enjoyed my card today! Don't forget about the President's Day sale - it's for a limited time!

Thanks for visiting today and have a great week!
