This is my card for Jeanne's Ship Shape challenge - shaped cards, anything other than squares, rectangles or circles.
I like the Blossoms dies for card bases, but they make quite small ones, so after that Labels 10 is my go-to, because with a quick snip across the bottom of the back it stands up perfectly. I had out a different stamp set and then thought it would be good to have a few masculine cards in the mix. I remember we had a masculine challenge last year. So I put away my humming bird and pulled out In the Wild. Giraffe stamped with Versafine Sepia and coloured with a yellow pencil. After masking him I stamped the various bits of foliage (Kittie Kits) while it was still in the die, and then sponged with Tea Dye, Forest Moss, China Blue, Mustard Seed. Base is white card with an over-layer of yellow Bazzill with black stitching lines. I also added a Woodware sentiment.

Wow! Sabrina, your scene is beautiful. Neat idea about clipping off just a bit of the back to make it stand. My horizontal card using this label stands just fine on the curved edge. I was originally going to do a vertical card, but decided to go horizontal as I had made a vertical one about a year ago and wanted to do something different.
I love the sepia color for the giraffe and that bold golden card base. I want to try to case this card. TFS
