Elephant birthday

Hi! I hope you are all having a great weekend! With Memorial Day on Monday, I wanted to say to anyone that has served for their country, I want to give a thank you!


On to crafty stuff :) I made a birthday card that was inspired by several challenges going on right now: CAS Colours & Sketches, Color Throwdown and AAA Cards.


I started this one by stamping the chevron in green and then moving it over slightly so that it was in the blank area and stamping it again in gray. I used my Misti which was a serious help. Then I stamped 'Ellie' on some white cardstock and colored her in with copics. After fussy cutting her out, I adhered her to my card and stamped the flags right over her nose and colored them in. I also used my wink of stella to put some shine on the flags :) I used my Misti again to line up the sentiment. The last thing I did was use a white gel pen to add some dashed lines along the green part of the chevron.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Paper Smooches - Borderlicious; Avery Elle - Ellie; SSS - You matter
Inks: Copics - W00, W01, W03, R20, G19; Hero Arts - Charcoal Grey, Ranger - Lily Pad; MFT Black Licorice
Embellishments; Wink of Stella


I am sharing this in the challenges that inspired it :)

  5. Cheryl, this is a wonderful card! Love the simple balanced colour scheme you used. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards 3rd Birthday Challenge. And thanks for answering the question on my post. It seems, colouring is more popular now than just simple stamping. - Sweet Kobylkin
