I am here with another FUN Card that I am entering into the Guest Designer Challenge Over on the Avery Elle Blog!! We were to use the image above as our Inspiration Jumping off point and come up with a project!! They also included a Free Digi Stamp Image this month and I wanted to use that as my Design Layout Inspiration!!

I wanted to make a Retro Feeling Card!! I got several different feelings while I was looking at this image and with the lanterns and lights it made me think of a Retro Party!! So I started by Die Cutting the front of my card using the Rounded Diamond Dies. I then Die Cut three Rounded Diamonds from some chevron patterned kraft paper and then I stamped the Large Diamond Image using a Light Brown Shadow Ink from Hero Arts because I wanted the Tone-on-Tone look!! I then Stamped three of the Giraffe Images onto some Rose colored cardstock and some patterned text cardstock for the noses. I wanted the dimension so after I cut out all of the images I used some pop dots to pop the noses up!! I attached the giraffe's to the inside of the card so they would be peeking through the die cut windows and I felt it still needed something so I decided to add another panel to the front of the card only off setting it alittle bit to add the the retro feel alittle more!! After die cutting the windows I stamped my sentiment and pop dotted it to the card front!! I wanted the image to come to life alittle more so I added some Distress Ink with a fantastix brush to the Giraffes horns!! I LOVE the way this came together and it really gives off the Retro Feel I was going for!! Here is my card!!
THANKS for stopping by today and I hope you'll go to the Avery Elle Blog and check out all of the INSPIRATION!! Have a Fabulous Week!!
