Hi, and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a quick card tutorial featuring Whimsy Stamps Giraffe Smiles Stamps and Dies. I have a quick video tutorial and step-by-step pictorial for you today. I'm trying to include a Color Guide for you all when possible.

Perfect for: Father's Day, Mother's Day, and, or Grandparent's Day

Using Whimsy Farmhouse Greenery Stencil and Versafine Clair Shady Lane create a background onto a 4.25" x 5.5" #110 card base
