Silhoutte Challenge #3 faux stiching

It's time for our July

Isn't this just the sweetest little giraffe you have ever seen??

I found this little cutie in the silhouette store and couldn't resist getting it.  I colored it in with the shaded color feature on  the Silhoutte DE then assembled it all together. I made an offset of the shape and then mirrored it to the left of my image and welded the offsets together to make my card. Then I made another offset for my stitching in between the image and the edge of the card.
I hadn't really noticed it before but when you offset an image , you have the option of how you want the line to look. It can be a straight line or you can have it stitched. Just change the stitch lines to no cut. Put the registration marks on. Print it out then cut out your image. Voila!! Done hehe..  Love that feature!!  Learn something new everyday lol.
If you would like to enter our challenge then grab the Silhoutte Challenges Badge here and then come back over to the Silhoutte Challenge Blog and enter your awesome creation. I can't wait to see what you do.
Have a great day!
