If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: I love cute animal stamps. So I was really excited when I saw the Playful Pals stamp set and coordinating dies in the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions catalog. I haven't had a chance to make one of the cute animal-themed pyramid boxes yet, but I wanted to have a go at making a card shaped like an animal. Here is my first try at an elephant card:
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Playful Pals
Paper: Bordering Blue, Whisper White card stock; Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack
Ink: Bordering Blue (pad and marker), Memento Tuxedo Black, white Signo gel pen
Accessories: Pyramid Pals Thinlits dies, Bow Builder punch, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Dimensionals, Glue Dots
What do you think? I'm not quite sure the card base is the right shape. I started with a rectangular base (the long sides going up and down), but it didn't look right. So I gradually started trimming until I ended up with a 3" x 3" base. One benefit of this card size is that it fits perfectly in a note card envelope.
I have an idea brewing for another animal card. Now I'll just have to see if it transfers to paper. Thanks for stopping by!
