It’s Wednesday, and I’m back this week to start off April with lots and lots of love from Elmer the Elephant using Elmer Elephant – Q043 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Large Filled With Love – H004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. With everything happening in the world right now, I think we could all use a little bit of love. When I was a child, Elmer was also called Elmer the Safety Elephant, so I hope that you and all of your loved ones are keeping safe right now too!
To make this card I first die cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) and my Cuttlebug. Next I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image and the sentiment. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. Then I created my own background using a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspbery and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Happy Hearts Stencil. I also did all around the edges with the Picked Raspberry. Lastly, added in the bottom border of hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted which I ran through my Cuttlebug twice with 2 different red cardstock. Then I inlayed the lighter colour into the darker hearts. I had also ran the cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker beforehand to make the die-cut work like a sticker and easy to inlay. I also used one of the small hearts for the “o” in “Love” and added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen – Red Berry on top of it. Finally, I mounted the finished image onto a white base card 5.5″ x 4.25″.
