Global Design Project Challenge

Today's card was a challenge for me.  I couldn't  locate anything to copy in my normal surfing paces so I decided I would try something original–a true rarity for me.  I knew the paper I wanted to use and the color palate but as it happens so often, I was coming up blank with any ideas.  So I looked to the GDP challenge blog for inspiration. The GDP is a relatively new blog and I have been watching it for several weeks.  I didn't get my card done in time to play along but the fact that I even tried it is a miracle within itself.  Here is the design and what I came up with:

Zoo Babies

I attended the baby shower for Anthony and Shakarri Hamilton of Dublin, Ohio on Saturday.  I am so proud of this devoted couple so my card to them had to have multiple WOW factors.    The Zoo Babies stamp set makes a perfect baby shower card.  The pristine cuts from the Dies by Dave framelits, popped the adorable giraffe and rhinoceros (for some reason I keep calling him a hippo) for first WOW.  The second WOW is inside the card with a coordinating die cut gift card holder announced by that cutie potooty toucan. 

A handmade card lets the recipient know how much you care.  What was tucked inside the gift card holder may fade from their minds over time, but the card will stay in their hearts forever.
