No idea where the name came from.......he just looks like a Geoffry! (just got a note on the FBD blog page that this is the name of the Toys R Us giraffe. My kids are in their 20's, completely forgot about Toys R Us years ago! LOL)
This is another new fold for me also. ( Sorry, can't remember where I got it from but will edit this when I find it! )
Isn't he just too adorable. Wanted something using the colors from the Fresh Brewed Designs color challenge "Black, Orange and Purple" but didn't want to do any more halloween. So..Geoffry is what I came up with. Nothing like a 'different' color scheme to stir up an image!
The little 'doors' are dry embossed with a CB embossing folder and the band is just purple card stock cut out with a MS punch. The buttons and twine are from my stash.
Open the little doors and.......
There is Geoffry in all his glory. Love his purple spots!
The border punch is Fiskars, the flourish is a Marianne's die and the image is mounted on a Spellbinder's die. The flowers are from a prize package and the centers are glittered brads from my stash. The scarf and hat are colored and then sparkley fluff was added on top.
Lift up the flap that Geoffry is on and you have a nice place to write on the card and another Spellbinder's die cut with the sentiment on it. There is another flourish under the sentiment, can't see it in this pic.....no idea......hmmm......
Sentiment is perfect for a giraffe with purple spots and wearing a hat and scarf.
Oh, and lets not forget the pretty orange leg warmers! How 70's are they! LOL
Image and sentiment are both from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs
Coloring is with copic markers.
Sponging is done with memento inks.
