Giraffe 2 | Whimsy Stamps New Releasse

Hello and Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

Today I'm sharing a card using the new release stamp set Giraffe 2, along with the new Giraffe stencil and previously released Swiss Dots A2 Die. 

I began with an A2 sized panel of Neenah Solar White #80 cardstock. I ink blended the entire panel with my lightest color, Scattered Straw Distress Oxide. Then I placed the Giraffe stencil on top and ink blended over the Scattered Straw with Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide. I thought these were the perfect giraffe colors. My next step, I die cut the panel with the Swiss Dots A2 die. I used an an A2 sized top folding note card and popped up the die cut piece with foam tape. I used liquid glue to adhere the negative pieces into the circles like puzzle pieces.

I used another A2 sized panel of Neenah Solar White #80 cardstock and stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them using Copic markers and trimmed them out with my Brother Scan and Cut machine. I arranged the images on the panel and adhered them down with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I added a little shimmer with my Nuvo Shimmer Pen, added enamel dots and white gel pen highlights for interest. I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock, trimmed it down with a paper trimmer and popped it up with foam tape. I love the dimension on this card!

I had an extra colored giraffe so I adhered him with liquid glue on the inside of my card and stamped the sentiment "I really miss you" next to him. And that finished my card. I love decorating the inside of my cards, it's just a nice finishing touch to me.
