Mama Elephant – Rain or Shine Circle Shaped Card

Hi crafty friends! While I was waiting for the new Mama Elephant release to drop, I pulled out last year’s spring cuties to play with. First, I made a fun circle shaped card using their genius Combo Circle dies.

I started by stamping my images on Bristol smooth cardstock and watercolored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Pulling from my desire for sunshine and spring I used the Combo Circle dies to cut yellow and pink scallops, plus a white scene panel. I glued the scallops together, cut another scallop from white cardstock and scored it about an inch from one side. I glued this flap to the colored scallops to create my card base.

I blended tattered rose distress oxide ink in the center of the white circle and flicked pearl watercolor on the panel too. While that was drying I glued my turtle to the puddle and added foam squares to the back of my images.

When the panel was dry, I used my images as a guide where I could stamp my sentiment. Once that was stamped I adhered the images and stamped a few extra water splashes and drops. Finally, I added my scene panel to the card base with liquid glue. This helps so I have a moment to make sure it’s centered.

For finishing touches I just added glossy accents to the bunny’s nose and turtle’s shell. Then I added black glaze pen to their eyes to help them pop and shine too.
