Non-Traditional Valentine


Greetings friends.  I have been making a lot of non-traditional valentines lately.  I still wanted to have some hearts so that it still looked like a valentine, but I usually don't use giraffes on my valentine's day cards.

I recently cut out a lot of giraffes from the baby giraffe clear set with the coordinating baby giraffe die set.  I have them ready to go for any occasion.  I think the next card will be a birthday card with a party hat.

To make the card, I started with 140lb watercolor paper and stamped and cut out my giraffe and scarf.  I then colored everything with Zig Clean Color Brush markers and a waterbrush.  I wanted to amp up the spots on the card to go with the saying, so I stamped the Giraffe Cover a Card background onto a Kraft notecard with IO Caramel ink.  The sentiment was stamped with IO Chocolate ink.

Hope you have a great day!

Best Valentine's Day card I've seen. I thought you used spotty paper for a layer until reading it was a background stamp. Terrific. So miss your classes at Angela's.
