These are two cards I've made using Little Claire's December Stamp Club set. In the set you get both elephant designs. I have made a boy card and a girl card.
This is my first card. I kept to a blue 'boy' colour scheme.
To start I stamped the images with a black Memento ink pad and coloured it in with ProMarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the pond to get a water effect. I used Nestabilities to cut out the image and the dark blue frame.
For the background I cut a square panel of dark blue card. Onto this I attached a square of patterned gingham paper. Across the corners I attached strips of white ribbon. On one of the ribbon strips I threaded a white button. I drew white and black stitching around the edges. To finish I stamped the greeting, which is also part of the Stamp Club set. The elephant image was added to the card with foam pads.
This is my second card. I kept to a pink 'girl' colour scheme.
Again the image was stamped with Memento ink pad and coloured in with ProMarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the water section. I used Little Claire's large scalloped dies to cut the large gingham and pink scalloped frames.
Around the edge of the scalloped frame I punched holes using a screw-punch. Through the holes I threaded pink ribbon. In the same ribbon I tied a bow which I attached with PVA glue.
On a card blank I stamped pink flowers in pink ink. Onto the card blank I added the scalloped frames and elephant image.
