Giraffe Baby Card

Good day! When I first started making cards I just made whatever came to my mind or I found a challenge for inspiration. Now that my stash has grown I'm more purposeful in my card making. A couple of weeks ago a baby boy giraffe was born at the Tulsa Zoo and I made this Giraffe Baby Card to send to the zoo staff. We went and visited the new baby last weekend and although we didn't get a great view of him, it was clear he is a cutie. While we were at the Giraffe exhibit we got to feed an adult male a few pieces of romaine lettuce, their tongues are amazing. It was a lot of fun!

To create this card the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch was used for the layout. The giraffe stamp is by Inkadinkado and colored with Copic markers. All patterned papers are from the Snips & Snails paper pad by Doodlebug Designs. The Cutest Baby Ever sentiment is from the retired Label Love stamp set by Stampin' Up!. A stitched rectangle die cut out the image and a deckle die by Tim Holtz/Sizzix cut the bottom blue layer. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
