Elephant With Balloons


It's Anja here. I have another cad for you today. This time I combined this cute new die with some older ones and made a card that open a bit differently than usual.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Party Elephant, Tree With Tire Swing, Nested Stitched Scallop Square Set, Pierced Square Set),
- Distress Inks (Broken China, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade,
- white, colored and patterned card stock for die cuts,
- black pen
- white pen,
- hole punch,.
- ruler,
- pencil,
- metal rings,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the elephant and the tree. This time I used colored paper for die cuts. I emphasized the cuts with Distress Inks.

Next I made the background. I cut two squares. I colored the edges on the left one, and sky and grass on the right one.

Instead of the card base I cut two scalloped squares this time. I used patterned paper.

I glued the squares together and made two holes on top for the metal rings.

Then I combined both sides with the rings and glued the elephant on top. And my card was done.

And that is all from me for today. Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.
