Simon Says Stamp 'Sweet Elephants'


The latest Simon Says Stamp 'Best Days' Release has just been published!! It is fill of all things fabulous! Definitely one of the best releases ever!! 

I made this card using the super cute Sweet Elephants and Blooming Wave Dies



I cut the elephant out of Fog Grey Card Stock and used an embossing tool to round him off a little bit. I cut an extra ear and moulded that a little bit too.

I used the Blooming Wave die to make a flower path and then inlaid the coloured flowers and leaves. I coloured some extra flowers to make him a bouquet ;-)

I used a Copic Air Brush and a cloud mask to create cloudy sky background and used a Painted Happy and stamped birthday for the sentiment


For the inside I used the Blooming Wave die to emboss a panel across the grassy slope and popped in the cute baby elephant ;-)



Thanks for looking!

Challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches.   Sketch
Die Cutting Diva's.  Use Green
Always Happy Birthday.   Birthday
Seize The Birthday.   Anything Goes
Tic Tac Toe.  Green/Sparkle/Happy
As You Like It.  Single or Multiple Layers. I tend to prefer multiple layers, I think it makes the cards a little bit extra special with the added dimension. On saying that, I do like to make a lot of single layer Christmas cards as they are easier and cheaper to post ;-)
