Graphic Elephant

Sweet Stampin’ ~ Cute

I had been wanting to try making some graphic type card such as this for a while using stamps, but I don’t have enough of the right sizes to make it work so I settled for using die cut frames. I laid them out on a blank piece of paper so I could get the pattern right and not get glue all over the card front. Once they were glued together I then added the entire piece to the card front. My original plan was to leave it pretty much as a graphic but when I saw the new Sweet Stampin challenge I thought maybe adding a cute image would work. Using a Divinity Design stamp set and die I stamped and coloured the little elephant and glued a few extra die cuts to the back for more dimension. I added the sentiment and then played around with where the elephant would fit best. Once it was glued I added a few pearls.

  2. This is a great card with the elephant, which is a sweet image, but I really like the graphic look of just the frames, too. See, you can take something that is totally one type of card add something different and wind up with a great card! That’s genius.
