  1. Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Fireflies cardstock in half to form an A7 card
  2. Tape the Giraffe stencil to a 3 ½” x 5 ¼” piece of Fireflies cardstock with removable tape
  3. Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Black Embossing Paste over the Giraffe, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning, let paste dry
  4. Place the Thicket stencil on a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” piece of white cardstock and use a 1/2” stencil brush to apply the Thyme ink, move the stencil around the paper to fill the background
  5. Repeat with the Ivy ink offsetting the stencil so both colors show
  6. Run the Ivy ink pad around the edge and adhere to the card front
  7. Stamp the saying on a 1 5/8” x 1 3/4” piece of white, stencil some leaves around the edges, edge with green

  9. When the black paste is dry, adhere the Giraffe image to a 3 5/8” x 5 3/8” piece of black cardstock
  10. Adhere the Giraffe to the lower right corner of the background
