No Matter How Tall You Grow

Today I'd like to share another great image from Polka Dot Orchard.  This handsome giraffe is from Stand Up Guy by Artist Christina Hope.

 To make this card I sized the giraffe to fit on an A2 sized card front and then added the sentiment beside him.  I printed this on Neenah 110# card stock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  

I used one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges Dies for the edge turning it on opposite ends to get the angled effect. I double matted the card using a weathered wood grain card stock and then an orange solid paper.  After securing the matting to the A2 white card base, I added the colored image to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
