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.

Here’s 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!
