…..although I put a whole circle over the horizontal strip, instead of having a part circle showing on top of it.


Ever since Lucas, my 10 year old, saw the elephant, he wanted me to make a card saying


Well, I started this card out to make a card with his suggestion. I loved the idea! In the end…I FORGOT until it was all done. Talk about spacing out. I will have to try again. LOL

I started out with a 4 1/2″ x 9″ piece of Blue Bayou cardstock folded in half. I stamped the elephant from Year after Year first in black on Soft Sky Designer paper, then again on a whisper white circle. I cut out my Soft sky elephant and taped it over the elephant on the white circle. I added some shadow with soft sky ink and aqua painter and taped it on a black scallop circle.

I used dotted Saffron Designer paper over soft sky cardstock and stamped All in a Row stitching all over.

The saying is from the Take Three stamp set. I added three Ice Jewel brads on the side. I LOVE that we now carry bling in the catalog. I can’t wait to order Stampin’ Up!s new Pretties kit. It contains flowers, head pins, clear brads and pearls!!!!
