Sticking Our Neck Out To Say Happy Birthday

Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! It was cold in Orlando this weekend and I'm sure I speak for most of the nation when I say...enough already, I'm ready for Spring! Here's a card I made for my youngest son, he will be turning 33 next week and although he will roll his eyes and say I have too much time on my hands, I'm sure he will love it. He has had a passion for giraffes for as long as I can remember and with my new found crafting technique, I thought this would be perfect---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2-Topper
Technique: Paper Piecing-Mulberry Tear Animals
Nestabilities: Oval/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Birthday Wishes Card Making Combo, Babyface Alphabet (tag)
Punches: Marvy Flora (for eyes outlined with gel pen)
Background: Cutting Cafe-Happy Bithday Background
Font: Computer Generated-Batang (for tag)
Accessories: Ribbon, Gel Pen, Foam Pop Dots, Flat Back Gems

That's it for today! If you haven't already, make sure you stop by The Cutting Cafe before midnight tonight for your FREE Printable Stamp Backgrounds...see Saturday's posting for details. Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear from you so please take a moment to leave me a comment. I'll see you next time...enjoy your day!

This is a super card Kelly, so so cute, I just couldn't keep my eyes off it, I love it. I never heard of paper tearing before but it sure gives a fantastic result xxx

Nita's World Handmade said...

Very nice Kelly!!! How do you do the animal? It looks very furry.

Amanda said...

I cannot seem to get my paper as fuzzy as you do. Could you please email me at amandaeb@yahoo.com and tell me what your technique is. I have tried wire brushes and toothbrushes, wet and dry and nothing makes the mulberry paper quite as soft and fluffy looking as yours.

Roxie said...

First of all your card it fantastic!! I love the Giraffe and if your son doesn't like him I know where you can send him. I am right there with Amanda with my paper. I don't know if it is the paper that I am using or what I am doing wrong. I would love to know your technique also. Here is my address. roxie3452002@yahoo.com

Beautiful Job!!!

Fantastic card. Cannot say enough about your fluffy giraffe. I'm certain your son will appreciate your creativity.
I've made a few tear bears - not as fluffy as your giraffe - so I, too, would like to know what tool and what mulberry paper you've used.Thanks.
