Die Cuttin Diva's - ZOO challenge

Happy Tuesday!
It's time for another Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge! This week it's all about animals, doesn't that sound like fun? I was excited to create something fun. I made a GC holder. I always need something for a baby, I just don't make enough baby projects so that's what I made. I cut a pillow box large enough to hold a gift card and then used a Kadoodle bug Cutesy Zoo Animals SVG. I chose the giraffe and went with neutral colors so I could use it for the next baby boy or girl :)

Oh I love how this turned out! I inked up all the pieces first and added a little chalk to my giraffe's cheeks.

I added some fun doodling and pretty aqua polka dot paper and tied it with some jute twine.

I gave my giraffe lots of layers and dimension, I've been doing this more and more. I always cut everything twice (in case of mistakes) and I have this huge box of die cuts with pieces that I never put together. Well, I still cut everything twice but now I'm actually layering them and I LOVE the look and feel. Oh if only I could tackle my die cut box :)
