Today we are celebrating  
Michael Strong's
Cloisonne Elephants Rubber Stamp Set 
Don't you love elephants?
Well if you do, see what I have come up with.

 I have made an irisfolding  and stamping card for you.
On top of the card you see how I cut out the large elephant 
and used it as a template for irisfolding.
You find the template below:
Save this template with the right mouse click
to your own computer and print to use it.
 Here you see the finished irisfolding again.
Where it says A and B on the template, I used a large
strip of paper to cover the paws and the tail.
You can do this with a contrasting color if you like.

The sentiment you see here is by Club Scrap.

If you have never done any irisfolding, or 
need a refresh course take a look here for my tutorial:

 The botom of the card is with the little elephants, 
stamped in versamark and embossed with copper
embossing powder. Around the border of the card
I stamped the flower in vintage distress ink.

 Here an other sample with irisfolding.
Stamped in black on one side of the card
and in irisfolding technique on the other side.
The sentiment here is also by Club Scrap.

 Have a creative day!
