Stampin' Up! Number of Years Birthday Giraffe for Lando!

Hey there! Yesterday was Lando's first birthday! We gathered at our house for Sunday dinner and to celebrate!

Lando 1

I try to make each grandchild a special birthday card. Lando's favorite is a giraffe, so I CASED the baby card I made HERE, making it more "manly"!

The Island Indigo 4 1/4" x 11" card base is scored at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4", layered with Pear Pizzazz embossed with the Lucky Stars folder. The body is So Saffron and Cajun Craze for spots.

The Number of Years set provided "HAPPY", stamped three times on So Saffron and punched with the Washi Label.

After punching once with the wavy edge near the right end of "HAPPY", I re-inserted back into the punch and punched the left end.

I also used the "1" and "ST" images from Number of Years, cutting the number one with the matching Large Numbers Framelits Die.

I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp for Lando's name, also punched with the Washi Label Punch.

The card opened all the way:

I also created a second card for my display. This giraffe's neck was made with Daffodil Delight card stock, a mistake I did not notice until after I had him assembled and on the card. Oh well!

Here's the major punched pieces I used, including how many of each:

The leg pieces are 1/2" x 1 3/4", and I used the 1 3/4" Circle, Extra-Large Oval, Large Oval, 1/2" and 3/4" Circles, Elegant Butterfly, Owl Builder, and Tree Builder Punches. The tail and the giraffe horns were created with hangers cut with the Baby's First Framelits.

I saw this on Splitcoaststampers. Love this! Looks like a LOT of work, but well worth it! Love the colors you used, and the embossing folder adds a nice festive touch. Tfs! :) ~ Andrea
