Giraffes On Ice


A little winter humor…



Happy Monday morning from me to you! I have one very cute ice skating giraffe for you today. Lately I have been doing a bit of scene building, and using smaller images. For me this means less coloring and more die cutting. Todays card has the scene built on a tag!

I CASED (Copy And Selectively Edit) todays card from Barbara Anders at Paper Pursuits. She did hers as an MFT Design Team Member.


I would call this, mini scene building. I used MFT Snowy Hillside, trimming it down on the sides.


I used the color combo for the spots that I normally use for red hair. The body has four shades to get that nice variation from light to dark.


This was the perfect card to use my Cable knit embossing folder on. I thought it tied in with the sentiment I chose about the scarf. Did you notice that I did NOT use any Nuvo drops?? LOL
