Wishing you a Wonderful Birthday

For this special birthday card I have used the Pink Ink Designs image called "Giraffe".

I got a gelli plate for my birthday in October and I recently got it out to play with.  I used inks/stamps and stencils.  I then tried with acrylic paints/stamps and stencils.  I preferred used the inks as it was a lot less messy.  I stamped my giraffe and die-cut my tags out of a piece of yellow and a piece of copper coloured gelli plate designs.  I also cut the yellow frame out, embossed with a Crafter's Companion 8x8 embossing folder and inked the edges.  The white frame I embossed and then used a leaf stamp from the stamp set and stamped around the edge.  Of course the giraffe had to have glasses so I stamped and cut them out.

The black glitter card is rather gorgeous and is from Hobbycraft.

I stamped some leaves and flowers onto scraps of paper and cut out.

My card has been finished off quite simply with the flowers, leaves and stamped tag sentiment.

Fingers crossed the recipient likes it.  Not my normal type of card for her!!
