The last of the set of cards I made for my aunt. I still have to show you the actual birthday card I made plus the rest of her gift – I’ll get there. I’m very behind on my blogging!
I had cut this elephant image out while I was making a batch of notepads a few weeks ago and this little guy wasn’t the right colour for the project I was initially going to use him for. Since the image was already cut and coloured, I held on to it in hopes I could use it elsewhere.
I had this great piece of Three Bugs in a Rug paper left from a notepad project and HAD to use it (because I love elephants). My image was originally blue so I swiped over the whole thing with a Copic to make him more teal. I chose a few buttons to scatter over the card to pick up the other colours in the patterned paper and finished it off with a bow in my favourite PTI colour (Simply Chartreuese). The elephant is popped up on a couple of layers of “grass” made from patterned paper. The sentiment is Hero Arts and is actually a loooooooooooong sentiment so I used my positioner to make it a two-row sentiment. I find using a positioner a bit too fussy but it does have its uses!
Check back tomorrow for packaging for my card set and the rest of the gift!
