A Giraffe in Designer Diamonds

Hello!  Today I am sharing a VERY non-traditional Christmas card featuring several stamp sets from the Red Rubber Designs store.  It doesn't even have a "Merry Christmas" sentiment but it's is going to be my daughter's Christmas card this year.

Check out this adorable Giraffe from the African Giraffe Cling Mount Rubber Stamp set. I cut a slit in the lower portion of the diamond frame and slipped the long neck through the slit.  She looks like she is popping out of the frame!  For the background, I pressed distress ink onto the Designer Diamonds Unmounted Rubber Stamp and spritzed with water, the textured diamonds add a distressed and vintage look to any project!

For the sentiment, I chose "for you" from the Sophisticated Sentiments Unmounted Rubber Stamp set.  This sentiment set includes ten encouragement and celebration sentiments in a super cute font style!

I came up with a giraffe card for my girl because she started calling herself a giraffe a few years ago when she began to surpass all of her friends in height.  Ever since that time the giraffe has become her personal mascot!  For Christmas, I picked out the cutest long sleeve shirt with a zentangle-looking giraffe on the back and I hope to buy her some giraffe socks! 

Have you created any Christmas cards this year that are tailor-made for the recipient?  If so I would love to hear about it in the comments!!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
