My little niece, Adelyn, was born at the very end of September, and I fully planned to get a card made and sent off with a gift right away, because I so love making baby cards! Somehow, here it is in the middle of January and I'm just finishing her card now! Yikes. . .what happened???
Some months back (imagine that), I decided I wanted to make a baby card with a little giraffe on it. First, I was going to use Stampin' Up's Zoo Babies, but then I saw a card on Pinterest with a cute little digital image giraffe that was paper pieced. I tried to find that giraffe, but the card was made about four years ago, and the company was no longer in business. Just the other day, I did a Google search for giraffe black and white illustrations, and that search found me many cute giraffes to choose from. I love, love this little girl giraffe that I chose, and when I found the papers that I ended up using, I knew just what I would do with my coloring for this cute little creature! I'm pretty please with the end result, and I hope my niece enjoys her baby's little card as well. I'm going shopping tomorrow for a gift card to tuck inside for something that's just right for Baby Girl Adelyn.
