Baby Boy

I met up with some friends recently for coffee and a crafty chat and was reminded of some dies which I bought a while ago - two together in a pack.  There was an elephant which I used at the time and also a giraffe which until now hasn't seen the light of day but now he appears on two cards.  I made two similar cards because the die was cut using two colours of card so that I could mix and match the pieces.  The giraffes were popped onto some die cut circles, set to one side so that I could trim the motif down to be placed along the edge of the card.  Both cards have borders added for interest and a circular sentiment.

Circles - dies from Tattered Lace
Sentiment - from Netty's Cards
Giraffe - Sweet Dixie Toy Giraffe and Elephant
Floral Border - EK Success punch
Ric-rac border - die from Crafter's Companion
Papers - from my stash

  2. Two super cards, Val. How different the cute giraffes look by reversing the colours. I have this set of dies too and I've only used the elephant. Thanks for the inspiration to use the giraffe! xx

  3. 2 cute cards which I simply can’t decide which I like the best. Hugs Mrs A.
