A big congrats to Becky, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS421)! She has a fun, colorful gallery and it was hard to pick, but I kept coming back to THIS card. I even started out to use a horse silhouette, but mine was a bit too small so I changed it to a baby giraffe & then changed the stars to buttons. I also changed it to a baby card & added some die cut lace & piercing.
My card is pretty simple…mostly die cuts. The baby giraffe was stamped on kraft & I added just a bit of shading with a white Prismacolor pencil. The inside edge of the circle die was traced w/ a black Sharpie then I used the same die to cut it, added some piercing & added a white scallop circle die cut behind it. The large kraft panel was die cut across the bottom w/ a scallop die then more piercing all around. The white crochet lace was also die cut & added beneath it. I used a border piercing die to just emboss the front of the white card. Some kraft & white buttons were die cut, twine tied through them & added in the scallops.
