Giraffe - Any Occasion Card


The theme over on Papertake Weekly is embossing. I stamped this cute giraffe in black ink, then clear embossed it, so he is nice and glossy. I left the card blank so that it could cover a number of occasions - including men's cards (always so difficult to make I find, if the man doesn't have a particular hobby like golf or fishing). Of course, dry embossing is a breeze with the cuttlebug, so used this small mosaic pattern as it looks something like the markings on the giraffe if you use a bit of imagination!

What a fab card Enfys. Love the giraffe, where was the stamp from? I started buying Rylee giraffes when he was born and haven't stopped yet. Anything with a giraffe on and i buy it, so i would love this stamp ready for his birthday cards as I have to make 3 or 4. I'm sorted for 2 cards lol! Anyway the embossing is a great match with the giraffe. Beautiful!

What a Beautiful card....My Grandchildren would love this...
I am quite new to this great Cricut and cuttlebuging ...I would like to learn more..But where I live in Southwest West Australia.
There is no where to learn from even though the one and only scrapbook store sell's the machines NO One can be bothered to demo them so learning is quite difficult.Its by trial and much error and loss of much good paper.
Is there any d.v.d. or video learning???Please advise.
But this site is wonderful and I have learnt much...
God Bless.
