Baby's 1st Birthday
Who doesn't love a cute giraffe? For some reason, a toy giraffe is my little nephew's favourite toy. After checking out the various giraffe cuts, I think the cutest one is this little guy.
The sentiment is cut from bright yellow CS then thickened up with glossy accents.
Print cardstock used is from Nana's Nursery, Baby Boy. I love the sparkly, embossed touches.
Isn't this little guy the cutest ever? I love him being cut from yellow gingham to match the monogram letters. He's from the New Arrival cartridge.
I painted all the spots and shading using my Pro markers.
His mane, horns, tail and feet are shaded with Tea Dye ink.
The kite is a combination of things.

The right-hand panel needed something vertical to fill the space.
Making individual monogram medalions worked well for this and personalized the card.
I took advantage of one of the squares to place my signature. For this, I created a small text box in Word and printed it on vellum.
