Giraffe Punch Art Birthday Card

 Giraffe Punch Art with a Surprise Fold Out Neck

Giraffe Tri-Fold Birthday Card

Most of the time I am content making quick and simple cards, but every now and then I get carried away.  This was one of those days.   It all started with a birthday card for my grandson, Brennan, who turns 3 this week.  When you're 3 BIG is always better.  This oversized card folds to 4" x 7".  I thought that he might be impressed with a tall, tall giraffe.  Out came the punches.


Giraffe Punch Art Card

I started with a 4" by 12" Card Base and scored at 6" and 9".  The tag was made with the angled tag topper punch, the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack, the Just Sayin' Stamp set and Color Me Autumn Washi Tape.

I bought the 25 Days Photopolymer stamp set to make Advent Boxes, but the 3 tree stamp was perfect for today's Milestone Birthday Card.

Giraffe Punch Art

  • Giraffe Head-Duo Ticket Punch, Small Oval Punch 
  • Giraffe 'horns' are not actually called horns but ossicones.  I used a snippet from the Bird Builder punch and circles from the Owl Builder Punch to make the ossicones.
  • Ears were snipped off the branch from the Bird Builder Punch.
  • His tuft is from the Word Bubble Framelits.  I know it's not a punch, but I couldn't resist making a bubbly tuft.
  • Nose/Owl Builder Punch & Mouth/Bird Builder Punch
  • Neck-Modern Label Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch (I love the little hearts sprinkled in with his spots.)
  • Body-2-1/2" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch
  • Tail-Bird Builder Punch
  • Legs-Modern Label Punch
