Good Bye to Little Elephant

Hello!  Today I have a card for you using the colors So Saffron, Seaside Spray, and Smoky Slate.  This is part of the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #613.

CCMC613

And here is my card for today.

CCMC #613 Little Elephant by Jo Anne Hewins

Isn't this cute!  I'm a little sad to say goodbye to Little Elephant and the Elephant Builder Punch.  I sell a lot of my retired product, but I'm going to hold on to this one for a while.  Who knows when you might need a little elephant!

This card begins with a base of Seaside Spray that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is So Saffron card stock that is 3 3/4 x 5.  

Next is a layer of Seaside Spray check (sorry sold out!).  Add a 1/4 strip of So Saffron check just to ground those elephants!

For the elephants and trees I used the Smoky Slate script paper from the Neutrals.  This is gone too.   In fact, all of the color family 6 x 6 papers are gone.  People know a good thing.  Let me brighten your day and tell you that scrumptious new color family papers are coming on June 3rd.  You will love them!

Punch the large elephant from the back of the script paper and the two smaller ones from the script side.  I want all of the elephants to face in the same direction.  Punch the ears from Smoky Slate check.  Sponge around the elephants and the ears with a sponge dauber and Smoky Slate ink.  This helps everything stand out a little better.  The trees are cut from the In the Tropics dies.  Sponge around them too.

Glue the trees.  Add the elephants with dimensionals.

CCMC #613 Little Elephant Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The welcome is cut with the Well Written dies.  Cut from script So Saffron designer paper.  Stamp the saying from the Little Elephant stamp set in Slate and trim.  Glue all to the card front.

CCMC #613 Little Elephant Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  Add trees, another elephant, and saying from Little Elephant.  The Little Elephant stamp set and the Elephant Builder Punch are both on the Last Chance Product List.  They'll be gone June 2nd or while supplies last.

A Fancy Best Dressed Designer Series Paper Card

I just can't seem to get motivated lately.  I have so much to do and I don't want to do any of it.  Do you ever feel that way?  I've been blaming it on staying at home for ever it seems.  So I was really happy when I made the card for today.  I wanted to make a special card and I love how it turned out.  I warn you now that it's not a simple card at all.  It took some time, but it was time of joy.  I do love creating when things just seem to fall in place.

Best Dressed Birthday by Jo Anne Hewins

This picture doesn't really do justice to this card.  Let's try this.

Best Dressed Birthday Side Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

There's some dimension to this card.  I can't take credit for the 3D flowers.  I saw the idea somewhere for this and I can't find it again.  I wish I could give credit where it is due.  The flowers on this card were cut from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It's on the Last Chance Products List.

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  Cover the front of the card with Purple Posy checked paper.  I'm so sorry to say that it is no longer available.  You know you can substitute another paper easily.

The saying is from the Stitched All Around stamp set.  I used the Stamparatus to stamp this to get a good crisp dark image.  I stamped in Highland Heather.  Cut this out with the Stitched Label Dies.  This stamp set and the dies are also on the Last Chance Products List.  Hint:  The dies are on sale big time!  Place the saying in the center of the card on dimensionals.

Best Dressed Birthday Card Project by Jo Anne Hewins

Most of the flowers have three layers.  I used two sheets of the paper.  Cut the whole flower, then find another that looks close and cut out a smaller part.  Cut along lines inside.  Now find another flower on the paper and cut out a third even smaller flower.  Crinkle each layer up into a tiny ball and then pull out again.  Attach the layers with dimensionals.  I made three pink flowers and 4 purple ones.

Now figure out where you want them on the card.  Add with dimensionals.  Leave room for a bow at the top.  The bow is made from the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding.  I colored it with the Dark Highland Heather Blend.  I used a bow tier to make the bow.  Add with a glue dot.

Once the flowers are placed and the bow, cut lots of leaves from the designer paper.  Add with a glue dot at the base.  I did cut some leaves from other papers in the pack to get a few darker ones.  Just keep cutting and adding until all is right with the world.

Best Dressed Birthday Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.  Add more cut outs from the designer paper.

Best Dressed Birthday Project by Jo Anne Hewins

One last touch is to add some Wink of Stella to the flowers here and there.

The card really isn't hard, but it does take some time.  We won't have this paper much longer.  The flowers are beautiful.  Wouldn't this make a beautiful wedding card!  I used it for a birthday.

Let me also say that this really isn't a card to put in the mail.  It's a deliver in person card.
