Punchie Giraffe!

One of my little grandsons has a birthday coming up so I got in today and made his card while I could! I found this punched giraffe on Heather's website HERE, and as I love making anything using punches, I took the opportunity and made him up. We do not have all the SU punches here that the US have so I have substituted where necessary but he has worked out OK - I think!! Thank you so much Heather for a great video tutorial!

The colours I used were SU Certain Celery DSP, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Summer Sun, Blush Blossom and Chocolate Chip. His mane has been made by pulling the threads out of chocolate chip ribbon.

The number is a Kaisercraft number which has been covered with Opals. I do hope Lachie can tell he is a giraffe LOL!!

This is so CUTE!!! I also love using punches for different reasons - make them so much more worth while to own. I see you have also been busy making other beautiful creations.
