Hey There

Evening all, after a 6 month hiatus we are back with a brand new challenge over at HLS CAS, YAY!

Here is my card, can you guess the theme?

This month our theme is -

We you right?
I went with TALL!
This cute Paper Smooches giraffe was made taller by stamping the neck and head and then the neck and body, joining them under the green disk sentiment. 
After colouring him with Copics, he was fussy cut and attached to a panel of white card to which I had stamped a few leaves coloured again with Copics. I grounded him by adding some scribbled green Copic marker around his legs.
My circular sentiment panel was first coloured with one of the greens I used for the leaves and the Paper Smooches sentiment stamped and embossed with white EP. The finished panel was then added to a slimline card base, A5 folded in half. Slimline cards seem to be all the rage at the moment, good job I've got plenty of matching envelopes from donkeys years ago! There is nothing new, everything eventually comes back into fashion.
For more Short and/or Tall inspiration check out the rest of the DT, then why not join in? We'd love to see your interpretation in the gallery.

Joining in over at:-


  1. Love the added leaves and grass - great idea to stamp and separate the giraffe for more 'tallness' xx

  2. You literally stretched your stamp! Brilliant! I am a sucker for giraffes and this card is darling Julie! Thanks for playing along at Just Us Girls this week for Word Week I really appreciate it! Take care!

  3. What a fabulous card Julie, love that cheeky looking giraffe. Hope you are doing okay xx

  4. Oh my gosh ... this is the cutest, Jules!! LOVE IT! xx

  5. That is one cute giraffe Julie and that is a great trick to extend the height! Hope you had a good Christmas and that 2021 brings better things. Thanks for the lovely Christmas card.
    Stay safe

  6. What a great idea to use the sentiment to make your tall giraffe even taller! This is one fun card.

  7. Your card makes me smile, Julie! I love this joyful scene. Adding sentiment in this interesting way makes this card even more special.
    Happy New Year, Julie.
    BożenA xx
