Little Elephant Inspired by Global Design Project #GPD148

The Global Design Project challenge this week is a CASE of the designer Connie Collins.

I decided to use some of the colors, flowers, and the sketch for my card.  I just got the Little Elephant bundle this week and wanted to use it.  Here is my card.

Little Elephant CASE of Connie Collins by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Rich Razzleberry measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Pear Pizzazz layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The Mossy Meadow paper is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It is cut at 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut a Whisper White circle.  The Layering Circles Framelits were used to make the Pear Pizzazz scalloped circle.  Glue to the card.

Stamp the ground in Mossy Meadow and cut out with snips.  Adhere to the card.

The elephant was stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  Clean the stamp and stamp again in Pear Pizzazz.  Use the Elephant Builder punch to punch out the large elephant in razzleberry and the ear from the green one.  Attach the ear with a dimensional.  Glue down the elephant.  I got the small circle for the elephant's eye when I punched out the green ear.

I know that the Little Elephant stamp set has flowers, but I wanted to use the flowers from the A Little Wild stamp set.  I love the daisies!  Stamp in Tuxedo Memento Black.  Use Stampin' Write Markers to color the flower.  I used Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.  Use the Little Loves Framelits to cut out the flowers.  Add these flowers with dimensionals.

The bow is made from the 1/8" Sheer Ribbon in Old Olive.  Add with a glue dot.

The words are from the Little Elephant stamp set.  Stamp in Rich Razzleberry on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White.  Notch one end and add another flower to the other end.

Little Elephant card inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The sentiment on the inside is from Little Elephant.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow.  Stamp the elephant in Rich Razzleberry directly on the paper.  Stamp again in Pear Pizzazz.  Punch out the ear and eye with the Elephant Builder punch.  I have a flower left over from the front, so I added it too.  You could stamp that directly on the paper also.

Jo Anne, I love how you used the colors and layout from my card but created a totally fun and different look. That elephant is so cute. Thanks for joining in on the challenge this week at Global Design Project.
