Valentine Elephants

 
With the beautiful cloisonné Elephants
by Michael Strong, I wanted to make some
Valentine cards.


For the first card I used the Mojo Monday sketch
and you can find out all about it here:

My friend Paulette from Create with TLC
send me the sentiment to use with the elephants.
Check out her blog for everyday freebies!
 
 
 The second card is below. Here is used some scrap papers
in combinations with the large elephant and
Michael Strongs small cloisonné heart stamp.
 
 
 The elephant is stamped on a background of distress stains
with vesamark and embossed in silver.
 
Brushed pewter, festive berries and picked rasperies
ink is put on a craftsheet and with ranger tag paper
I swiped it onto the paper and dried it with a heatgun.
After I stamped the elephant and
the heart on this paper, it was cut out with
scissors.
After the paper was gliues to the card, the heart
 and the elephant were added with a piece of foam tape
for some dimention.
 
This is the inside of the card.
Have a creative day!
