MAMA ELEPHANT Zodiac Dog | Designer Series

June 1, 2020

Hello, crafty friends. Today I am sharing a card I made combining a few awesome products from the newest Mama Elephant release. My card features Zodiac Dog, Stems and Sprigs and Frilly Window Frame – Creative Cuts. I thought it would be fun to combine something ‘cutesy’ with some floral images. I think a lot of times we think we have to choose one or the other and I wanted to see if I could create something where I didn’t have to.

To start, I stamped and colored all my images with Copic markers then die cut them with their coordinating dies.

Next, I die cut the large frame from Frilly Window Frame and mask off the edged before ink blending some clouds with a stencil and Distress Inks. To add interest, I also splattered my ink blended background with the same Distress Inks I used.

While I was die cutting, I also took out Grassy Trio – Creative Cuts and die cut a small piece of grass to ground my images.

To put my card together, I glued the grass directly onto the ink blended piece. Next I mounted the background onto an A2 card base that I covered with purple card stock. Next, I added foam tape to all my images and arranged them onto the background.

For the sentiment, I chose to use this sweet sentiment from Sweetest Greetings stamp set.

That’s it and my card is finished! I hope you liked my project today. As always, thanks for reading! Ciao!
