For T's birthday you can never go wrong with a giraffe. Instead of making her a card, I wanted to go much bigger (now that I have the capability using my Silhouette Cameo). As usual I had to relearn the little bit I knew. I really need to make time to use it every few days at least for a while so maybe the info will stick in this old brain of mine.
The giraffe cut is from KaDoodle Bug Designs' Watch Me Grow set. I was a bit disappointed that you can see through the yellow contact paper I used, but that's what I get for being cheap. In fact, nothing really worked out as I planned. I wanted to put it on the wall by her bed, but the contact paper wouldn't stick to the textured wallpaper. The only place I could put it was on the closet door which is partially hidden by her wheelchair. After I started assembling the giraffe parts, I realized I was not going to be able to position the "arms" the way I had planned. (I wanted them outstretched a bit more. Also, there was no room to put the tail, so I just left it off. I was hoping to change out the banner for the different seasons/holidays. We'll see if it even stays up there.
If she could talk, I know T would tell me she loves it anyway. And she would laugh. I miss her laugh.
