- 2" x 3" from Bumblebee Cardstock

Mount the little bits of rubber from the center areas of the Butterfly Brilliance stamp on Block C to form a pattern. Ink them up with the Terracotta Tile Ink Pad and stamp them in a line across the center of the 4" x 5-1/4" horizontal Bumblebee rectangle. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Rotate the stamp 180 degrees every other time you stamp. Let some of the images go off the edges of the cardstock (so have some Grid Paper on your work surface to protect it from ink).
Adhere the stamped Bumblebee rectangle to the front of the Terracotta Tile card.
Mount the giraffe image from the Back On Your Feet Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vertical 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" Bumblebee rectangle.
Use the Terracotta Tile Marker to color in the spots and insides of the ears on the giraffe. Also use it to outline the giraffe's eyelid and nostril.
Use the Early Espresso Marker to color in the giraffe's hooves.
Adhere the colored giraffe image to the Early Espresso rectangle at an angle.
Mount the "This is knot good." sentiment from the Back On Your Feet Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad. Stamp it near the left edge of the horizontal 2" x 3" Bumblebee rectangle. Make sure to leave room on the left of the sentiment to cut out the tag in the next step.
Pick out the group of three tags die from the Trio Of Tags Dies. Put it on top of the stamped sentiment on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered top to bottom and is close to the left edge of the center tag with the top of the tag on the left side. Run through the machine.
Cut a 4" piece of the Terracotta Tile 1/4" ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.
Thread one end of the ribbon through the hole in the left side of the tag and center the tag on the ribbon.
Cut an 8" piece of Linen Thread.
Fold the thread in half. Tie the doubled thread around the ribbon near the left side of the tag using a knot.
Trim the ends of the ribbon and thread.
Adhere the sentiment tag with ribbon tied in place to the front of the card so the tag overlaps the bottom of the stamped background line about half way and the flat right edge of the tag is about 1-3/4" from the right edge of the card.
Adhere the matted giraffe image to the front of the card so it covers the right end of the tag and is centered on the card front top to bottom.
Pick out the 2 interconnected small hearts die from the Trio Of Tags Dies. Put it on top of the small piece of Terracotta Tile Cardstock on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so you will cut out the bottom, solid heart. Run through the machine.
Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the small, solid heart cut out to the front of the card on the upper right side of the matted giraffe image as shown.
