Zoo's Who?

     When it's Christmas at the National Zoo, the giraffes have a 'high' time catching snowflakes!  It's the final day of the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place and the prompt for today is the letter "Z."  I did a Z-fold card and used a Zoo theme.  :-D

I started with the colors offered at My Favorite Things.

     I used ProMarkers to color, then cut the image and the sentiment with stitched dies from CUTplorations.  The red mat is also cut with another die from that same set.  I did the Z-fold on a slant, cutting off the top, right-hand, corner of the card front all the way to the middle fold before adding the image piece.

     I found some lovely silver ribbon, dotted with glittery snowflakes, and I wrapped it around the card front, behind the image piece.  I also added a glittered snowflake.

     I can hardly believe I managed to play each and every day of the 30 days at Beccy's Place and it was really fun.  I now have an additional 30 Christmas cards in my stash and that's a good thing since I plan to donate at least 75 Christmas cards to the Senior Center just down the block from my house.  Every year, those cards are so appreciated and I even get calls from the Center now asking if I'm bringing cards again this year.  :-D

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Good on you for playing along every day NC, it was a big commitment! Your "Z" card is awesome, love the fold and love the way you've decorated everything. The glittery snowflake is wonderful!
Donating your Christmas cards to the Senior Centre is a lovely idea! It gives you even more reason to be creative and it gives the residents some beautiful cards to give out. Wonderful!
