Do you ever need a cute card that just says “I’m thinking about you” or “You’re on my mind” without being heavy or solemn? For this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge, I created a sweet card with a cute elephant that says “I’ll forget you not.” This week’s sketch was fun to play with – as was the new Little Elephant Bundle. Here’s my card:
- Little Elephant Bundle. Little Elephant was not on my initial wish list from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – until Mary Fish got her claws in me. With the release of every book, Mary and I flip through every page together, pointing out the many things we love and handful of the things that leave us wanting a little more. It wasn’t until I heard Mary’s enthusiasm for this bundle that I gave it another look. I’m glad I did – because these little guys are adorable! Here’s a look at the Little Elephant Bundle:
- Layering the Little Elephant. While the dotted trim (stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and the Detailed with Love stamp set) and sentiment fulfill the elements of the sketch, the elephant is my “creative license addition.” I stamped the smaller elephant with Smoky Slate on Thick Whisper White and punched him out with the punch. I cleaned the stamp off, stamped the image again in Balmy Blue and punched the ear with the punch. I added a tiny Flirty Flamingo heart from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch – all of this blue, yellow and gray needed a little pink, right? Here’s a closer look at this adorable, patterned elephant:
- Sweet Colors. This card has all the elements of a baby card – except for the sentiment. The colors are so sweet together and are just as appropriate for a baby card as a “thinking about you” card. There are three elements of Balmy Blue on this card – cardstock framing the layers, a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper and ink on the sentiment and elephant’s ear. Mmmm, elephant’s ear. If you like this combination of Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate, please save this:
