Thanks for all your comments on my last effort. I think I'll re-make the card in slightly more Christmassy colours and see what you all think.
In the meantime, here's another Christmas card in very non-traditional colours! This was actually my swap card for a Christmas swap hosted by the lovely and talented Claire Daly. I decided to see if I could hang some baubles on the Wild About You giraffe, and turn him Christmassy.
I've stamped the giraffe in Cool Caribbean ink onto White gloss cardstock, and hand-drawn a star on top, and his eye, mouth and bauble hangers with the fine tip of a Stampin' marker. I've also used the marker to ink up part of the sentiment from Crazy for Christmas (very handy, those markers!) I've filled in some of his spots with brad-baubles. The spotty background has been done with a white gel pen and the Paper piercing template. Some Chocolate Grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
So, what do you think of this one??
