Sweet & Snarky Giraffe Card Perfect For A Friend

 I had trouble deciding which sentiment to use on my card, snarky or sweet, so I used both. :)

However, I will earn a small commission when you click on my link and purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I went with sweet on my first card and used the Crackerbox Stamps Happy Valentine's Day Friend Script sentiment and stamped it in the Crackerbox Stamps Word Bubble Round.

For my second card, I went with snarky by using the Crackerbox Stamps Don't Repeat Gossip sentiment stamp and stamped it in the Crackerbox Stamps Word Bubble Rectangle.

I used Crackerbox Stamps Rafferty The Giraffe on both cards and colored him in with Copic Markers. For the background, I used the Sizzix Tropical Leaves embossing folder on a white piece of cardstock, and some green ink on the raised embossed parts with an ink dauber, then cut it into 3 pieces. Then I added some die-cut leaves with the Maker's Movement Tropical Leaves Die around the Giraffe and attached him with some 3D foam squares.

So what do you think? Which one do you like better, sweet or snarky?

I die cut out some hearts and a woodgrain frame and stamped the Crackerbox Stamps You're Nuts But sentiment, and adhered everything onto a woodgrain card front using my Xyron Adhesives. I added a few small dots of Pops Of Color Gloss in Rudolph Red to finish my card.

This was a rather simple card to create. I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Charlie Brown Tree and colored it with Copic Markers. Then stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Not What's Under The Tree sentiment stamp, cut it out, and then matted it on some fun patterned paper. The two Crackerbox Stamps I used can also be purchased as a set.

Christmas Card With Xyron

The best and easiest way to adhere small diecuts is with the Xyron Creative Stations. I used some woodgrain cardstock for my card front and adhered it to a white card base with my Xyron Mega Runner. Then I die cut out several leaves using the Maker's Movement Winter Foliage Die Set and some foiled paper. For the sentiment, I used the Maker's Movement Tiny Happy Holidays Die and cut it out 3 times with white cardstock to layer them and cut the shadow and top layer of the sentiment out with foiled paper. Then I ran all the die cut pieces through my Xyron Creative Station Lite and adhered them to the front of my card. I added some red Stickles to create the berries.

I used the Crackerbox Stamps Lady with Holding Hand stamp, and when inking her up, I made sure not to put ink on the bow in her hair since I knew I would be putting the Crackerbox Stamps Santa Hat on her. I then stamped her in the bottom corner of my card front.
I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Grinch Wine Glass, so it was on her hand, and then colored her and the wine glass in with Copic Markers. I stamped the Santa Hat separately and then colored it with Copic Markers, fussy cut it out, and adhered it to the lady

I then stamped the Crackerbox Stamps White Christmas sentiment, added a few sequins to finish the card off, and mounted it to red cardstock.

Next, I masked off the top cup and stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Candy Cane to make it look like it was inside the cup. I fussy cut out all the images, so it was all one image. Adhered it to my card front with Xyron Mega Runner and added some patterned paper to the edge to make it look like the Crackerbox Stamps Grinch Hand was coming from behind it. Then I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Hot Chocolate Hug Saying and die cut it out into a square, matted it with red cardstock, and adhered it. I added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drop in Bottle Green to finish it.


I used the Grinch Mas sentiment stamp on the inside of my card.
