wplus9 unforgettable elephant

Two stamp sets featuring elephants have been released lately and they are both so incredibly cute! First is the Unforgettable set by WPlus9, and then there's Ella & Friends by Mama Elephant. I can't decide which I like more! I made a couple cards with Ella & Friends over the weekend that I'll be sharing soon (still need to photograph them), and I made this one with Unforgettable that I'm sharing today.



The base is a standard A2 size made from kraft cardstock. I cut a panel of solar white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die sized 5 1/4 x 4". I cut the green patterned paper with the same rectangle die and then again with the slopes and hills dies. The elephant, balloon and hat were colored with prismacolor pencils and cut out with their matching dies. I used tumbled glass distress ink with a blending tool to color the sky. I stamped the flowers on the background and then colored them with pencils also. I tied pink twine around the green paper and attached it with foam tape, along with the elephant and balloon.




I shared another card in this post using the Unforgettable stamp set and distress inks if you'd like to see more with this same elephant stamp. And I'll be back soon with even more elephant cards!! Hope you have a lovely day. :)
