Giraffe Valentine Baby

I got inspired tonight to work on some new punch art. Here they are, Mommy and Baby Giraffe!
I thought this would be great as a Valentine's Day card or as a New Baby card. There would be so many cute ways to personalize it! It was really easy but uses a lot of punches so here we go!

I am going to start with the mom. She is made out of barely banana sponged with so saffron and Close to Cocoa paper accents. Her spots are Really Rust. Her tongue is regal rose.
head- tab punch with top rounded off with scissors
ear tufts - horizontal slot
ear tufts tops - 1/4" circle
eyes - 1/4" circle white and large crop-o-dile hole black
side ears- 5- petal flower, brown is just trimmed down a little smaller to fit inside
mouth/chin - large oval
mouth/tongue - large oval and small oval
nose - large crop-o-dile hole(wrong in this picture)

Here is the baby. She is made out of So Saffron sponged with so saffron and Creamy Caramel paper accents. Her spots are Really Rust. Her tongue is Pretty in Pink.
head- 1" circle
ear tufts - horizontal slot
ear tufts tops - large crop-o-dile hole
eyes - 1/4" circle white and small crop-o-dile hole black
side ears- 5- petal flower, both are trimmed down a little smaller
mouth/chin - small oval
mouth/tongue - small oval and again trimmed down
nose - small crop-o-dile hole

Baby's body - 1 3/8" circle
spots - 1/4", 1/2", 3/4". Put them on and then trim around sides.

Here is the moms head next to the baby.

Moms neck- wide oval trimmed to moon shape with spots, then trim spots after you glue them on.

baby's feet - 1/2" circle cut in half
back of card - really rust
grass - 1/2" x 4 1/4" Old Olive cut with scissors for blades of grass
hearts- heart to heart punch in regal rose - sponged
baby tail - 1/4" circle
baby's legs are drawn with black marker and gone over with So Saffron, same with tail.
The background white is 4" x 5 1/4" and is sponged lightly with Brocade Blue.

Hope you like them! I can't wait to make something else with them already!
