I've Always Looked Up To You | My Favorite Things

Hi Friends!  Kari here with you today, and since we just celebrated Mother's Day here in the States yesterday, I thought this card would be appropriate, although this isn't technically a Mother's Day card.  I think this images in this Giraffing Me Crazy MFT set are so sweet!

I started off my card with the popular Cloud Stencil from MFT, and inked up a piece of smooth white card stock with Broken China Distress Oxide ink.  Then, I took the Peek-a-boo Square Die-namics, and die cut it twice from the white card stock as well as some older 6x6 paper from Lawn Fawn.  

I set that aside to work on my giraffe images.  I stamped it with some Jet Black from Lawn Fawn since it is a Copic friendly ink.  I colored in my images very simply using my Copics in E34, E37 and Y21.  I also stamped out some leaf clusters and used YG67 and YG17.  

I die cut my images with the coordinating Giraffing Me Crazy Dies.  I played with the layout a bit, and started to assemble my elements.  I used liquid adhesive since it gave me some time to put into place where I wanted all of my images.  Once, I was happy with all of the placement, I adhered my main panel onto an A2 white card base with the same liquid adhesive.  

I stamped my sentiment on the inside of my card since there really wasn't a good place on the outside, and I chose the "I've always looked up to you" sentiment.  I had one leaf cluster left and added it to the inside as well!

For a final touch, I thought adding some red hearts would be a nice pop of color!!

Thank you for popping in today and hope your Monday is a happy one!  See you soon!
