Die Cut Obsession Day: Baby Elephant in Pink


Hi, Today is Die Cut Obsession Day over at the Impression Obsession blog - go here to see what the other designers have made! I chose to use Impression Obsession Patchwork Elephant as I needed a baby girl card. The final card is 4.25 x 4.25". The small size of this die allowed me to make a cute card with the paper arranged in a whimsical fashion. I used an old pad of 6x6 paper. To make the background I used our Clouds Cover-a-Card background stamped in Worn Lipstick - I think. It might be stamped in Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I did pop up the face and ears with foam tape to add some dimension. I added a few light colored sequins but I am not sure where those are from either - yes I am scatterbrained. I make a lot of backgrounds ahead of time so that explains the ink problem lol!

The softness of the Clouds background was perfect for this card. The sentiment is from Life Stuff Sentiments. I stamped it onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I cut that thin strip with the new My Sweet Petunia Cut Align - not sure how I crafted before without that tool.

There are a lot of other Patchwork critters - go have a look! I am not sure why I - a Gator's fan - do not have the Patchwork Gator but I will be rectifying that soon!

Head over to the IO Blog to see all the beautiful cards!
