Did you know that cameleopard or camelopard was the ancient name for a giraffe? Well, you do now!

For this card I've used a Katzelcraft giraffe stamp, stamped and then cut with a Gummiapan stitched ovals die. The animal print papers are from a Zeeman pad and the hessian and yarn scraps from my bits bag. The whole card only took about 10 minutes to put together - and a fair bit of that time was untangling the yarn from the mess at the bottom of the bits bag, where it has been quietly tangling itself up with everything else for several years!
