I've seen a lot of hippy cards using "the bi-colored spots", but the first card I saw with this was Cindy Haffner's fabulous sample! So when the baby stamp came out, I thought how perfect to make each parent have the different colored spots to produce a lovely, blended baby ! The color inspiration for this was Gina K's first Hip Hop sample, I just loved that blue color with the chocolate. (This blue background paper is DP from my Cosco slab. )My hope is that by incoprating both the blue AND pink and keeping the bling to a minimum(I used the Button Babies Brads through the SU! punched ovals) I can send this card out for a new baby boy OR girl!
After stamping these giraffes I decided they were further apart than I wanted them(shown above, originally I was going to put the baby between them) so instead of doing it over, I found a fast solution. Cut around just the left side of the right giraffe, cutting stright up to the giraffe hoof from the bottom and then straight up to top edge when you are done with the outline, and then splice the two together. (you don't have to cut out the wonky new edge in the middle just glue the giraffe on top of it, lining up the top and bottom of the CS so they're straight.
One last thing I did to complete the illusion (forgot to take a pic, sorry) was to cut off the left giraffes right front hoof to adhere on to top of the new spliced image(See how in this bottom pic it looks like one foot is missing? Now look back up a t the completed card to see what I did. Yeah, that added a little more time, but still faster than cutting out both giraffes!!)
