Oldie But Goodie at Bugaboo

At Catch the Bug on Thursdays we feature some of the older images from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. Today I want to share a birthday card for a giraffe lover.

Material used: 
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Giraffe Blocks
Whimsy Stamps – Animal Print Digi Paper (Freebie not in shop)
DL card blank
X-Press It card
brown card
Copic pens
gold peel off greeting stickers
square die

The Giraffe Blocks are printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics and cut out with a square die.

The front of the card has a panel of giraffe print digi paper (found in my snippet box) and the middle image is matted onto a snippet of brown card.

The three panels are attached at different angles to the front of the card and the greeting sticker added. 

I decided to keep all the giraffes the right way up although the actual Giraffe Blocks has the middle image upside down.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
