Happy Tuesday, all! I've got another sample to show you from Our Craft Lounge tonite! I was trying to crank out two cards for each of the sets I received, but for some reason this card took me longer than normal and I finally had to put the giraffes away and call it a night! I love that most of OCL's sets do double duty, and you can use them for more than one occasion! I love how well-thought out all the sets are! WAY TO GO GIRLS!
This set is called Tree-mendous love, and can be used for baby cards, valentines, or just a happy-hello type card! I decided to do 2 lovey-dovey giraffes; my first thought was to intertwine their necks, but I was fully into a sinus infection meltdown when I made this and just didn't have the brain capacity at the time! I bet you could just shape the necks on your block to intertwine them. DUH. I'll have to try again another day!
So this is the card that I ended up doing. I paper-pieced the leaves of the tree onto green My Mind's Eye Patterned papers, then colored in the hearts a little darker green so that they pop off the paper. I also had to draw some little x's and o's carved into the tree. I don't think you can see it well on the photo, but the heart in the tree is bright red sparkly glitter!
Hope your week is flying by, I can't believe November is 1/2 over already! Where has this month gone? GASP!
