Sweet Heart Giraffe

Another swap I was recently involved in was for Patterned Paper ATC's. I decided to go the whole hog (or should that be giraffe?) and use patterned paper for the base of my ATC, however the part that started it all was the giraffe. I had made a similar giraffe on another card (which I hope to share soon) and with all it's patterned paper felt I had to do that for my ATC's as well. Well... 9 ATC's with 9 paper-pieced giraffes is a lot of cutting! But it's just so cute, it was worth it lol. Once again my 3/16" corner rounder was hard at work: scalloping the bottom edge, creating faux ric-rac and scalloping a 1 1/4" circle! I love how perfectly the scalloped circle fits around the 1" circle.

That scalloped 1 1/4 inch circle is just fabulous - you are too clever Carol! The ATC is great too - you are a sucker for punishment with all that cutting - but great result.

So sweet Carol! But OMG how freaky is it that we both went for a scalloped base on the same day?
