Not a Traditional Wedding Card

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


A couple of months ago I saw Sandy Allnock use this image, and fell in love with it. 

I started this card by figuring out the layout of where I wanted the image and where I wanted the sentiment.

I am using Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock for the panel.

I inked up the giraffe image from Impression Obsession with Simon Says Stamp Stone ink. And then with a baby wipe going around the edges to make the edges fade out. I stamped that, and then did the same thing with Memento Tuxedo black ink, but inking up less of the edges of the stamp. 

I also stamped the image on some Eclipse masking paper and then cut it out with a pair of scissors.

I stamped the sentiment with the same black ink and then covered the giraffe image with the masking tape so that I could use the spritzer tool to add a little blue around the giraffes.

I used a B00 Copic marker to add the color and then I removed the mask.

I then used Copic markers to color in the giraffe images. I used E19, E25, E53, E97, Y17, Y21, Y23, YR00, and YR14.

I then used the My Favorite Things Rectangle STAX A2 dies to cut the panel down so that I could add a black piece of cardstock underneath my panel and then a turquoise colored card base as well.

I really like this set, and hope to get the chance to use it again soon.

I hope that you have a great day!

  1. Oh this would have been a wonderful card to send to my niece for her wedding, she absolutely adores giraffes. Beautiful work colouring them.
