Father's Day card with Mama Elephant Bear Hugs

I wanted to share today my card that I made this weekend for my dad for Father's Day.   This set from Mama Elephant has some great sweet sentiments.     I started with Neenah Solar white card stock and cut out a circle shape and stamped with the bears from the Mama Elephant Bear Hugs.  I colored with my Copic markers.   I heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts White embossing powder and used my flag die to cut both ends of the sentiment strip.   I added a heart that I had precut from red card stock and my Simon Says Stamp mini hearts die cut.    The focal image and sentiment strip was placed on top of a kraft card stock that had been stamped with a wood grain background step and cut out with an MFT Blueprint die for a stitched edge.   On the inside, not pictured, I stamped another greeting from the stamp set in Hot Fudge hybrid ink and added some stars from Sunsine Pigment ink.
