I made the giraffe dimensional and then I hung my little baby greeting on his tail, isn't that sweet? You can use a real piece of thread or just draw one, here I made it coming through the sign (see the little holes?) TIP: I wanted to put that nice interior greeting from the set on the outside, so I decided to frame it up like the baby greeting by stamping it on a white rectangular piece of CS, running a brush tip black marker around the edge, and then with a stright edge using a fine point pen to make the inner border and colored to match the small one. This I mounted on another piece of white CS and cut with scalloped scissors. (You could also quadruple(!) mat it instead, but I think it's easier to draw it, IMHO) I also drew a rectangle around my giraffe to frame up my focal point to match. This pink and black gingham is another piece from my new Hobby Lobby mat pack, small and large grosgrains are from Stampin up! I also used their photo corner punch and a Scrap Essentials heart brad to balance out that top corner, so the card wouldn't be too bottom heavy.
I've done a two layer, dimensional giraffe on a couple other cards I've posted, but today I wanted to show some pics of how to do it. Stamp two giraffes, one for you focal point (so leave room around it for the mat), and the one you'll cut up. Cut just the back two legs and tail off your second one, color both, and add dimensionals behind the legs.
I cut up the the little edge trim pieces from your dimensional sheet for the narrow leg parts with my craft scissors(so my snips wouldn' get sticky), and they fit. Mount on top of your first giraffe an it looks like he's sticking out at you.
It's hard to photograph this effect but it really is worth the effort, and now you can tie something around the tail or put a lollipop or other object behind it like my card pop in a previous post.
Finally, I added the following tip to a previous post but didn't have a pic(and you might not always read the whole post!), so here it is again, use the little heart and flower on the back with your siggy, here are mine!
