Hello Crafty Friends! I am super thrilled to be joining the Sunny Studio Creative Team this term! For my first project, I created a newborn card featuring the adorable Baby Elephant new release.
For the base, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 3.2”H x 8.2”W. I die cut another piece of white cardstock using the rectangle in the Slimline Scalloped Frame set. I then die cut three circles on the rectangle using the third smallest circle in the Stitched Circles set to make the shaker front.
I made a slimline cloudy stencil by die cutting stencil paper with the cloud die from Slimline Nature Borders. I placed the rectangle on top of the base and I lightly ink blended a cloudy sky background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I added a cloudy border at the bottom using the cloud from the Slimline Nature Border set.
I cut a piece of acetate the same size as the rectangle piece die cut with the three circles. I then glued the acetate onto the back of the rectangle piece. I added foam tape around all the edges of the rectangle piece making sure not to tape over the circles.
I added Pastel Star Confetti onto the base and carefully attached the rectangle making sure that the clouds were lined up.
I wanted the baby elephants to have a soft appearance so I used light brown ink to stamp the images and sentiment. I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies and colored with Copic Markers. I borrowed the balloon strings from Heart Bouquet and tied the balloons with a bow from Little Birdie. I added a flower on one of the elephants from Fabulous Flamingos, a crown on the other, and finished off the card by adding little stars.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card!
