Hello, Friend

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the adorable Stand Tall set from Clearly Besotted. The giraffes are so very cute and I love the little turtles too!

I started off by stamping the giraffe and turtle using Memento Tuxedo Black. I coloured them using Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out with scissors leaving a small white border. I then took a piece of white cardstock and cut this using one of the circles from the SSS Stitched Circles die collection. I lightly blended over Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky and Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron for the grass. I flicked over a little water (difficult to see in the photo) and set this aside to dry.
I took a piece of paper from the MFT Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot paper pad and cut this with a SSS Stitched Rectangle die. This was adhered to a card base made from Hero Arts Decorative Woodgrain cardstock, with tape runner. I then adhered the circle piece with thin foam squares. I added the giraffe and turtle on top, also with thin foam squares. I stamped the sentiment from the Tiny Type set on to white cardstock, heat embossed in white and cut into strips. Again these were added with foam tape to the card. I added Tonic Nuvo Glaze to the giraffe's spots and the turtle's shell. I also added white gel pen to their eyes. To finish off, I added a few Enchanting sequins from Lucy's Cards.

  1. This is such a cute set. It's adorable with the little tortoise and I love all the layers, especially the wood grain on the card base. It adds a really nice touch of texture. Is the Tonic Nuvo Glaze like Glossy Accents? It has a nice shine. Xx

  2. oh my gosh, this is super-sweet! I love all the texture and layers here. This would also be a charming baby card.

  3. A gorgeous cute card Michelle x
