There is something on this card that I consider absolutely essential for CAS cards - the oval!! I have a set of small clear ovals by A Muse. They are perfect for grounding your image, particularly when you are just plopping the image in the middle of white space. You can put them under vases of flowers or pumpkins or Christmas trees...or...giraffes!! I stamped the giraffe, masked his feet, inked the oval, stamped it off once on scratch paper and then on to my card for the perfect ground!!
- Stamps: Papertrey Ink Sweet Baby, A Muse Ovalicious
- Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White (the BEST paper for good images with solid stamps)
- Ink: Stampin' Up So Saffron, Pool Party, Going Gray
- Accessories: ribbon from Hobby Lobby
Absolutely adorable! And, you are so right about "grounding" images.ReplyDelete

What a sweet, sweet card! Love the grounding effect! The more I see your One Layer Wednesday cards, the more I keep thinking I really need to bop over there and play along! :)ReplyDelete
So adorable Kim, love his little ribbon bow too.ReplyDelete
I have that set of ovals too, they just make an image look great instead of good:)

What an adorable card...love that giraffe and sentiment! And, you are absolutely right about those AMuse ovals...they rock!ReplyDelete
That giraffe is adorable especially with his cute bow. And you're right - the ovals are essential. They may cause me to break the shopping ban. :)ReplyDelete
Absolutely adorable, Kim! The bow around the giraffe's neck is the sweetest touch, and you are so right about the ovals. Just a perfect one-layer card!ReplyDelete

I love your baby card, Kim. That little giraffe is so cute, and the oval works so well. I have one that I like to use, too. AnnReplyDelete

I didn't even realise that you could get oval stamps! You are right ... they do "ground" the image! Super cute, Kim! Hugs xxaxxReplyDelete
