Dad, I sure look up to you!

Isn't this little giraffe the cutest thing? He's from Melanie Muenchinger's Hip Hop Accessories stamp set. I made these cards for Valentine's Day; the outside says "Dad, I sure look up to you!"; the inside says Happy Valentine's Day.

The DP is from Basic Grey's Granola pack - such a great manly pack of paper - I just love it!

On this first card with brads; I actually stamped and colored the giraffe, then stamped and colored again, but the 2nd time, I cut him out and popped him up on dimensionals. I love how his spots are actually hearts, such a cute idea!

Nothing fancy on these, just some layering, dry embossing and coloring with my Copics. The ribbon is Dark Chocolate Twill from Papertreyink. Man, this ribbon is AWESOME! And if you haven't visited their site lately, better check it out! They've had all kinds of announcements related to their 2 year anniversary!

Thanks for popping in; I hope you have a great weekend! Hugs, ~M.
