Giraffe Family

Donna Phelan back again.

Today I am sharing a sweet little Baby Shower Card with you all.  They are so FUN to make and send to the new happy soon to be sleep deprived couple.  lol  

This couple does not know what they are having so I used all neutral colors in creating it.
We have 'a thing' in my house about Giraffes so I started with this adorable Poppystamps Giraffe Trio, they make a perfect little family.  I distinguished each one by simply choosing the appropriate color, Blue for Dad, Pink for Mom and Yellow for the sweet little Baby.  I placed the happy family on a Tutti-Designs Nesting Stitched Banners die cut, which I layered. I also added a bit of texture to each Giraffe die cut using a Darice Embossing Folder.

*** Hey did you know the Dies R Us Store not only carries a wide variety of fantastic Dies, but it also carries Embossing Folders, Paper Pads, Inks, and Adhesives to name just a few of your paper crafting needs.  Click right HERE and you will see a whole list of amazing products that the Dies R Us Store carries at amazing prices! ***

Using the pretty Penny Black Heart String die, each cut out in card stock matching  the Giraffe Family.  My sentiment is stamped in Wild Wasabi ink, heart in Pink Pirouette.  Which I then cut out using the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Tags.  I added a few little accents; Gingham Ribbon, Flower Button and Twine and some tiny yellow star confetti to my background paper.  

This card will also be entered into the Poppy Stamps Challenge, Framed.
