I found this great giraffe image on Graphic’s Fairy this week and thought it would make a super sweet shower card for a new baby boy.
I choose a pattern from My Mind’s Eye with complimentary colors and layered it over a nice dot from Crate. I know it’s not really animal print….it’s more stylized…and more subtle. I think it works well with the chocolate brown borders. I used a doily image trimmed from an additional sheet of M.M.E. paper, and another image from Graphic’s Fairy of a fun ticket. I used a stamp and chocolate ink from Stampin Up for the sentiment. There’s a few buttons and a brown bow with small polka dot flower with brad to finish it off.
This card may get re purposed into a book cover??? It might also be a nice smash book cover to take to the hospital for the guests to journal a nice note to Mom and new baby and room for lot’s of tidbits that might not fit into a traditional scrapbook.
Looking forward to a day off tomorrow. It will be a while though before I get used to being at home with no paper to play with.
