Handmade Card Simple Giraffe

I totally forgot about this digital stamp, it was a lovely surprise when I found it. I had planned to leave it as a very plain CAS card but I stupidly left it on the table and someone stood a drink on the white card, so he had to be die cut out.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Cardmaking Tutorial

The giraffe image was cut with the medium nesting die

The ribbon was glued to the edge of the card base

The coloured papers were cut with the remaining dies and glued in the arrangement below

A bow was glued in the top left corner

Two further pieces of coloured paper were die cut to act as an insert and the happy birthday sentiment was heat embossed into this

This was then glued inside the card

This is being entered into the following challenges
