Cute elephant {Lili of the Valley}

Hi, crafty friends! I have a simple card to share today, featuring one of the elephants in the Cute Elephants stamp set from Lili of the Valley. This time I chose the elephant with the balloon. I make a lot of cards featuring images with balloons, and this elephant is just too cute.

I colored the elephant with Copics, stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment inside the balloon using Altenew Obsidian ink, then used a die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 1 set from My Favorite Things to turn it into a panel with that nice faux stitch line that I use a lot on my cards. In my stash I had a white card base with a stamped background (the Scattered Triangles Background stamp from My Favorite Things, stamped with Sour Apple and Blue Yonder inks, also from My Favorite Things) on the front that I decided to also make use of. The colors match my elephant nicely. I was actually planning on using this card base for my previous elephant card, but I adhered the stamped background upside down and had to redo it, but saved this one for a future card.

On top of my scattered triangle background, I adhered a strip of a patterned paper from the Party Patterns paper pad from My Favorite Things, mounted my colored panel using foam tape and embellished near the sentiment using the White Orchid Sequin mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Simple card means simple color palette.
