Merry Monday #88!

I am working from home today and thought I would squeeze in another card. Scroll down to view my 1st post of the day also as I have some great workshop card ideas! 
I thought Merry Monday had the cutest challenge for this week. All you need to do is include an animal in your Christmas card:
My 5-year old granddaughter Kaitlynn LOVES giraffe's. Her room is full of them so I thought of her this morning. I also decided to go monochromatic and stick with white & gold:

I used my Gold Metallic Encore Ink Pad to stamp the giraffe image and the ticket-shaped sentiment:

I love the gold-striped Fancy Foil Designer Vellum that will be available for purchase on January 3rd. The package of vellum comes with both the gold & silver colored sheets. And how about the Gold Baker's Twine you see at the bottom of my banner?

I hope you like my gold infused card for this week's challenge. Here are all of the supplies I used:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Banner Framelits Dies (coming soon), Ticket Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots
  • Inks: Gold Metallic Encore Ink 
  • Stamps: Zoo Review, That's The Ticket
  • Accessories: Gold Baker's Twine (coming soon)

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
