This card is for a special girl who will be 12 very soon. I stamped the elephant twice onto white card and coloured with Promarkers, once onto the blue swirly paper and yellow patterned paper and then did a lot of cutting out!! Then I layered up the elephant adding gems at the tassels and along the edge of the3 basket. I stamped the little girl's head and dress and coloured with Promarkers and cut her out. I cut out a panel of the blue paper and attached it to the card base. I stamped the birthday sentiment onto white card, cut it out with Labels 25 and while in the die added some colour - sort of suggesting the sun! I stamped a couple of clouds - one behind the blue and one to go on top. I finished off with this gorgeous Opera Tag which I stamped in Versamark, embossed with gold and then added the number 12, I completed the tag with some twine from my stash.
For the inside I used Promarkers to make the blue frame and then used several of sentiments in the Half Pint Heroines set and the birthday greeting from Earth Angel. Here's close up of the elephant and sweet little girl showing the dimension. I used the CR84FN45 colours - blue, orange and yellow - they seemed appropriate with the elephant!!
Card is now in the post and should get to the UK in time for the young lady's birthday. I had such fun making this card - the elephant is just fab!
The postman has just delivered my new Waltzingmouse stamps - they are absolutely super. Off to play now. See you soon.
