Baby Giraffe Punch Art!

I fell in love with this cute little giraffe when I first spotted it on Linda Fisher's blog (Hi Linda!). I told her I was going to make her little critter! Here is my card for today:
He just makes me smile & giggle....he's so cute! And he is all punches! I have a niece that is having her 3rd child in August and she just found out it's going to be another boy.....that's 3 boys for her! I will probably make some kind of a goody box or 3D item to go with it at some point.

Here is a close-up of the buttons. I again used "faux thread" in all 3 of my buttons by cutting a very thin slive of cardstock and threading it through the holes. Add a Mini Glue Dot to secure the "threads"! I even added 2 small Pearl Jewels to one of the buttons:

Do you like the tags? I stamped 2 "baby" from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set and cut them out with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I used a safety pin to grab a hold of all 3 of the tags, spaced them the way I wanted and then glued a Stampin' Dimensional behind all 3 to secure them in place so you can read all 3 at once:
