Stand Tall- Happy Birthday!

Hi Sweet Friends! 

Wow! What a fabulous new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release this past Friday!! 

Today I am sharing a card that I created using the brand new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Stand Tall Clear Stamp Set (designed by Korin Sutherland).  I love this new stamp set, it is so cute and the sentiments are perfect for many occasions!  

To create this card:

1). Emboss a piece of designer paper with a lattice embossing folder, trim and mount onto flamingo cardstock, trim and mount onto the chocolate card base.

2). Die cut two banners with a stitched banner die (I used a flamingo cardstock and a chocolate patterned paper from my stash), adhere both directly to the card front per the sketch and add the patterned paper rectangle.

3). Die cut a piece of white and patterned paper with a stitched rectangle die, mount each onto chocolate cardstock and trim both close to the die cut edge.  Add the patterned paper rectangle directly to the card front on an angle.

4). Ink the group of hearts image from the SNSS Stand Tall Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink, stamp onto the white die cut rectangle and color with a flamingo water-based marker.

5). Heat emboss the giraffe image from SNSS Stand Tall Clear Stamp Set  with black embossing powder onto white cardstock and color the image with water-based markers.  Add white highlights to the eyes with the Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Pen.  Fussy cut the giraffe and adhere to the white die cut rectangle.

6). Mount the fussy-cut SNSS Stand Tall giraffe image panel onto the card with dimensional foam.

7). Heat emboss the sentiment from the SNSS Stand Tall Clear Stamp Set with white embossing powder onto chocolate cardstock, hand cut the banner and mount onto the card front.

8). Die cut the hearts using the SNSS Pick Me Up Dies- a small and large heart from flamingo cardstock and a large heart from chocolate cardstock.  Add to the card front to finish off the card.

This was a fun card to create!  Thanks again for taking the time to visit!  Hugs and I hope you have a fabulous week, sweet friends!
