Zoo Baby

Just enough time for a quick post today. My sister-in-law is expecting a baby boy in September and she asked me if I could put together a baby announcement for her. I was honored, and I got to work. She had picked up a stamp set (Mindy's Zoo from Autumn Leaves) that she wanted to use. I thought little boy, and this is what I came up with.

The patterned paper is from a Stampin' Up! retired pack. The colors were exactly what I was hoping - sort of on the 'boy' side, but not overly so.

I stamped the mama and baby giraffes on the patterned paper and cut them out. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Bitty Baby Blessings. This would be easy to switch up colors (or animals - the set is full of cute baby zoo animals) for any theme.

She loved them, and I've been cutting out patterned giraffes ever since!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great night!
