MAMA ELEPHANT My Pet Kitties | Stamp Highlights

June 26, 2020

Hi there! Today I am sharing a card I made with Mama Elephant My Pet Kitties and Frilly Window Frame – Creative Cuts! I saw that sleepy kitten and knew I wanted her sleeping on a window sill. Since I didn’t get a chance to use Frilly Window Frame yet, this was the perfect choice!

I started by stamping and coloring my images with Copic markers. I die cut them with coordinating dies and set them aside.

While my die cutting machine was out, I also die cut the window from Frilly Window Frame – CC.

Since I am making a shaker card, I used the same die to cut a window out of some cute heart pattern paper I decided would look like adorable “wallpaper”.

I inlayed the window into the pattern paper and adhered acetate behind it. And this is my card front!

Next, I used foam tape to build up the back of my shaker before filling it with fun stars confetti I got from Target.

For behind the shaker element, I heat embossed a sentiment from Wishful Taggins then ink blended the back with Distress Oxide in Broken China to look like a sky.

I adhered the backing to my shaker mechanism and then adhered the entire thing onto an A2 card base.

To finish, I added a thin white strip of card stock at the bottom to look like floor moulding. I then adhered all my images onto my card and it is finished!

Thank you for stopping by today! Please don’t forget to visit Mama Elephant’s blog to see the rest of the team’s amazing creations!
