As many of you will know by now, I love elephants. So, when the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue was launched I was delighted to see this stamp set with the cute elephants and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it…Product List
Then I saw this sketch challenge in the “Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations” Facebook group and I thought they’d be perfect for each other…
So here’s the card I created…
I used Whisper White Thick card for my base, measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I then added a layer of Seaside Spray card measuring 10 x 14 cm.
I cut a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color designer series paper to measure 10 x 4 cm and added this to the left side of the card base.
I used the opposite side of the paper for one of the horizontal banners. The 2 wide banners are 4 cm wide and the second one is Smoky Slate card. I used the top of the Tailored Tag punch to create the V shapes at the ends.
The 3rd banner is Whisper White card at 2 cm wide and is stamped with Seaside Spray ink.
I trimmed each banner to fit once I was happy with their positions.
I stamped the elephants onto Whisper White card with Memento Ink and used my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to colour them. I also used Light Crumb Cake for the ground they’re standing on. I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies to cut the image out.
The sentiment is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensional and I added 3 silver Metallic Pearls as a finishing touch.
I’m pretty pleased with the outcome and I hope you like it too.
