I made this card to enter Mama Elephant‘s first guest designer call for their star studded anniversary celebration Stampede blog hop. I am always being a Mama Elephant fan because they have the cutest stamps ever to play with. Since lots of people has been doing Christmas card in August. I decided to follow this trend a little bit.
To make this card, I ink blended using Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper. Then I splattered white watercolor paint by tapping watercolor brush handle and set this background aside to dry.
I die cut top frame out of Mama Elephant Hillside Cover Die from a piece of Neenah Solar white 110lbs cardstock. To create open window, I cut the center of this die cut with my scissors. After adding foam tape underneath, I attached the top frame onto the prepared background.
I colored all images from Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti Stamp set and Sentiments From Yeti Stamp set with copic markets and die cut them with coordinating dies (Me and My Yeti / Yeti Banner) I arranged them onto the panel using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape. At last, I used white gel pen to create some details and added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Seed Beads as embellishments.
Now I am holding my breath and hoping I could be picked as one of their Special Guest Designer on August 8th. Good Luck to myself!!!
