Get Well Card

The other day, I got a call from one of my friends that I ride the bus with. My friend Rod, who works for the Coast Guard Auxillary, has a friend who is ill and has been in the hospital for a while. He asked if I would make a card so that he and some of his co-workers could give to their sick friend. How could I say no?? Rod told me that he always sees me showing my GF the cards and projects that I make and he really wanted a special card. Aww, how sweet! Here is the card I came up with: He told me that there were about 12 people that will be signing the card, so I made it a "long" card - gee, this would have been perfect for Jen's LCWC challenge a while back (was it #10?). Anyway, this giraffe is a whipper snapper image and I originally was trying to follow a cute tri-fold card I saw on Dawn's blog - Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. But it didn't really work out because I thought of having this giraffe's head and neck stick out of the hole.
So, I ended up covering the hole with pumpkin pie CS. I added dimension to the back of the head so it would look like his head was really coming out of that hole. Good thing this card was for a bunch of guys who don't know the difference in the card making department...haha!

Here is the inside of the card. I think it's enough room for 12 guys to sign...guys aren't as "wordy" as us girls (heehee!). Anyway, thanks for coming by today...I'll have a cute mini tutorial tomorrow on a cute favor using a couple of manila tags (from an office supply store) and cardstock...I found this while cleaning this weekend and have revised it to fit a larger tag...more tomorrow :) xoxo
