A Walk on the Wild Side – I Dare You!

Happy Friday crafty people! This week Nat is hosting our Daring Cardmakers Challenge and she is inviting you to take a walk on the wild side by featuring animal prints or wild animals on your card.

I love animals and was spoilt for choice in my craft stash for this prompt! I decided to go with a fun giraffe and used the gorgeous Gabriella from the Giraffalicious digital stamp collection from JMC Designs. (I am a design team member for JMC Designs so this post contains some gifted items).

Giraffes are such beautiful animals and I’ve been lucky to see them when we have been on game drives in South Africa. This was on our last trip in 2019 when we came across these 2 having a scuffle. The were leaning on each other and hitting each other with their horns. Thankfully neither got injured and after a while they wandered back into the bush.

I love when you see them peeking out from the trees, enjoying some lunch, this was the inspiration for my card today.

I also used a background paper and some pre coloured leafy branches from the Happy Campers Digital collection.

I created a frame with a few layers of die cut cardstock and added some sky behind it. Then glued Gabriella into the frame and added the leafy branches to the bottom of the frame. The finishing touches were a die cut sentiment and some nuvo jewel drops in pale periwinkle and key lime. I hope she makes you smile today!

Come along and see the fabulous selection of wild cards made by the design team and I look forward to seeing your makes too.
