Hey friends! I have a really adorable card today featuring some Avery Elle goodies. I’ve been so excited for their recent release that it inspired me to pull out things I already have and play with them.
To create today’s card, I stamped images from Sending Hugs and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I did want to slip the elephant inside he envelope so I stamped it a second time and used the special die in the set to cut it out. Then I used liquid glue to adhere it all together, including the flower in the elephant’s hand. I put this in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment on the bottom in Lawn Fawn guava ink.
Next, I inked up a white panel with stormy sky and tumbled glass distress oxide inks. I kept the stormy sky to the center so it was a little shadow coming out from behind the envelope. Once that was blended, I splattered it with watered down ink of both colors and let it dry. Then I ran it through my die cut machine with the quilted backdrop die. I added foam tape to the back, keeping the center cut out in place and adhered it to a white card base. Then I added foam tape to the back of my image and popped it on too.
For finishing touches, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in wedgwood blue to all the points where the quilted stitching meets. Then I added glossy accents to the “berry” looking flowers and heart in the speech bubble. I brushed a little Wink of Stella glitter on the flower in the elephant’s hand and also added black glaze pen to the elephant’s eyes.
I just think this card turned out so sweet! I can’t wait to play with this set some more and add the other critters to the mix too!
