Kiss Me, I'm Irish!


Hi everyone! Bibi here today, and I know I'm a little early using March colours ... (think Paddy's Day), but when I saw that Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers had a challenge right now where kiss is the theme, I just HAD to make this Irish inspired kissie-kissie card:


An Irish giraffe? Why not! That stamp has become one of my favourites so she will continue to show up, unannounced and unexpected.

I made the Shamrock using three heart stamps, stamped with green ink and coloured in with a lighter shade. I made its stem by swooshing the green ink pad across a piece of cardstock, then cut it out in the thickness I needed.

The text is printed out, using a free font from dafont.com (love that place!).  




The giraffe is popped up with pieces of foam tape underneath.

I finished off my card with some green fibers attached around the spine (is it called "spine" when we're talking about a card?)


I'm entering my card to:


Thank you for the inspiration, Snarkies!

 XOX,
Bibi


PS: I am not Irish, although my shoulder's tattoo of the Irish harp 
and a tiny shamrock suggests otherwise:

I got it in Dublin over 20 years ago and it has faded a lot since then, but my love for Ireland has not!

My card won me the honourable title of Princess over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!

    1. Thanks, Donna! ♥ Married on Paddy's Day, that is so cool! Did you wear a green dress? ;) I used to dye my hair green on March 17th, back in my younger days when I celebrated the day at an Irish pub in Oslo. Glad I found your challenge in time!

  7. I love this card! Since everybody is Irish on St. Patrick's Day, of course your giraffe is. ;) The background behind him is so cool, too. Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! (You know the sisters love their Rubber Dance stamps!)
