About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Smiley Miley Giraffe

Created this cutesy little chap for a friend who is due her baby in a few weeks. She told me the theme for the nursery was jungly/safari animals. So here he goes xx

I decided to make it approx. 6" square using a box frame.  I layered a piece of white card onto a really dark chocolate brown card for the base and then used another die to layer up three other "giraffe" shades in card from my stash.

I printed the giraffe onto card and die-cut him using one of my favourite dies. I printed him out again just so I could 3D his face.

I die cut using a la la land banner die in two of the coordinating cards and stuck them to the inside of the frame to give depth to the image. I stuck some of the hearts that were a bi-product of the die onto the image just for fun.

I've been doing a lot of colouring lately, which I love but it made a nice change to use printed images.

I love it, she loved it, hope you love it too.

Love n Light
