Picture Book Giraffe Baby Card

I am having so much fun with all the new Simon Says Stamp Picture Book animal dies!!  They are so cute, and so much fun!!  I used my Picture Book Giraffe die to make a baby card...
I die cut the giraffe in 3 different cardstocks...brown/kraft/tan...diecutting each twice for layering.  I adhered them together and adhered them to an embossed giraffe that I  hand cut out, to have a whole giraffe to adhere all the pieces to...
Here are a few pics to show you what I did...
Put the die on a piece of cardstock on an embossing pad, then put the second embossing pad with an acrylic plate over those(if you have a Big Shot)...
After running it through, the giraffe will look like the pic on the left, and then you cut him out, like the beginnings of the pic on the right, to have a whole, secure piece to adhere all the little die cut pieces onto.  Hope this all makes sense:)!

I added a cute sentiment from the Simon Cuddly Critters Accessories stamp set.  I used the Tonic Jewel drops to add a few drops of bling to this little cutie!!  The card is embossed with a piece of burlap.  Here's a close up...
Such FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
