Surely you have heard of the new baby giraffe the whole world has been watching and waiting for! I heard about it, but was not one who was constantly paying attention to the whole saga, but I did make a punch art card for the new baby giraffe! Apparently the baby giraffe was born in New York on Saturday, April 15. The little newborn baby giraffe is probably about 6 feet tall and likely would weigh about 100-150 pounds! Now that’s a baby!
While the New York giraffe made the headlines because the birth was live-streamed and millions of people watched, there was also a baby giraffe born in Houston, Texas several days before at the Houston Zoo! So it’s been a good month for baby giraffes!
To make my punch art new baby giraffe card I just used various circle punches, some retired, oval framelits, whatever I had. There are lots of examples of punch art animals online if you do a google search! I used the Owl Builder Punch for two sizes of the circles. I can’t believe the Owl Punch is retiring, it has been so useful over the years we’ve had it! There was no limit to what we could create with the Owl Punch. So be sure to grab one while they are still available!
The little piece of grass on the bottom of the card and the flower I happened to already have die cut from the Basket Builder Framelits Dies. The dies and Basket Bunch Stamp Set come in a Bundle, which is retiring as all Bundles are, but actually, since both items are on sale separately, it is a better deal to buy the stamp set and then buy the framelits, not in a Bundle!
I wanted some kind of greeting on the card, but I didn’t have much space left, so I came across the word “Celebrate…” in the Beautiful You Stamp Set so I used that. It fit perfectly in the space and was perfect since we are celebrating the births of baby giraffes!
Any time you need to celebrate something, even the birth of a giraffe in New York or in Houston, you can make a card for that! Isn’t stamping wonderful?!
