WOOT!!!! I am so excited to announce that I am part of the Cooking with Cricut design team. I will be participating in at least two design team posts a month along with 17 other talented DT members. The design team will use digi-stamps or cutting files created by Melin that go along with the weekly challenge. This is my first design team experience and I'm very proud to have been selected.
The first step in creating this card was cutting out the parts for the cute little elephants. To do this I divided up the different pieces based on the colored paper I'm cutting it. With SCAL 2 I can easily use it the next time.
After cutting the pieces I did a little edging with stamping ink, I think I might be addicted to that technique!
I then put them through my Xyron, which made it easy to put together the elephants. The bow tie and headband are flocked and to add a little more character to the ladie elephant I inked on a little lipstick and then used my white pen for a pearl necklace and bracelet. You'll notice that I didn't use all of the hearts from this image on the front of the card. It was a little too much for my taste so I put them on the inside!
