Geoffrey the Giraffe!

Hi ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with a Rain, Rain, Go Away card.  

I used the giraffe from Create A Critter sized to 3.59 inches.  I took the umbrella from April Showers.  I grouped the layers and stretched them so the size is 2.40 width and 4.31 height.  

I put scraps of papers on my mat and cut them out.

I used orange and brown twine to create a mane.  I put some adhesive on the back of the brown layer and cut small strips of twine.

I assembled the giraffe one layer at a time.  I added some stickles for the eyes, mouth and antenna thingies!

I added stickle raindrops to the card and a little twine bow to her head.  I used glossy accents on her spots. I think this card will be appropriate for a support or sympathy card.

Thanks for having me over today Sweet Sassy Diva!!
