We’re moving into the second week of our “Something for the Lady” challenge over at Crafty Boots. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying all the fabulous entries we’ve had so far. I’m sharing a card that I had to rustle up quickly for a friends birthday that I had..er…shall we say “overlooked.”
Whilst looking for a suitable elephant digital stamp I happened across a fabulous tutorial, that includes a downloadable template, to make elephants out of book pages.
I’ve used papers by Stampin’ Up! to create this one and reduced the size slightly so it would fit comfortably on a standard sized card. I intended to use patterned papers so that mine looked very different from the original but it looked so cute with the printed pages I went with those but customised the face by adding in some eyelashes and blushing cheeks.
The design best suits a bold background or, as I chose, something quite plain. I experimented with some book page flowers but they didn’t look quite right so opted to use my favourite Stampotique daisies stamp.
I am also sharing this card over at City Crafter Challenge Blog where there current challenge theme is to include an elephant.
Thanks for buzzing by.
