Today my oldest son turns….23!! I can’t believe it! This birthday card is for him..because he loves elephants!! )
I am using this stamp, called eluvphant.
First I got all my stamp colors out.
I stamped the elephant 2 times per color.
I used an exacto knife to cut along the line for the ear, so I could make the ear more 3-d.
As you can see, for each elephant, one got to keep the tail and heart, the other is minus the tail and heart, but has it’s ear 3-D’d. I hope that makes sense.
On the base elephant, I put some dimensional foam.
The result is that you get a 3-D elephant that even stands on it’s own.
Here are all the elephants ready to go.
Next, to create the card base…I had the idea to make the white portion, mimic the sky by sewing random swirls on the paper.
Instead of cutting all the threads, I gathered them all up and taped them on the backside of the paper. By doing this the threads don’t loosen and become a nuisance.
To space the elephants, I eyeball it, before attaching them all to the paper.
After attaching everything, I added a clear Happy Birthday Sticker, and here is the final product.
This is my last post for RubberMoon as my term is up! I can’t believe the time has gone so fast. I loved working with all the creative ladies on our team and will miss working with Kristen Immensly!
I hope you have enjoyed all the things I’ve shared! Thanks for stopping by!!
