Happy New Year to you All
I was playing yesterday and decided to try something different, - an over the top card!
I made a template in PS, I wanted it to go in to a 6 x 6 envelope I thought that would be a nice size. I then went hunting for an image and decided on this cutie fab elephant, I'm afraid another one of those images not saved as who by. EDITED - I found another image in My Documents and found the original it's by Kaybescraps http://kaybehybrid.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-08-26T18:51:00%2B02:00&max-results=5 The digi papers are from Looking Pretty by Bette Duganitz. I printed the inside of the card with the paper so that the elephant would have a pretty not plain background when cut out. The flower was cut out on my Cricut and is named Flower 2 from a file by BirdsCards.com. The elephants eyes were black, so I recoloured them, added some blushing cheeks, printed it on gloss card from Cuddly Buddly cut it out and decoupaged the elephant. I then 3D glossed his eyes and toes and added Stickles to the flower. I have to say I am quite pleased with this and love the expression on the elephant. I don't usually like making more than one of a card, but I think I will do another with different papers, so it looks different LOL
Have a great day.
Edited 8th January - I told you I would try and make another of this card, well here it is, I also had to make a an envelope for each of them duh! I had made them 10mm to tall to fit inside a standard envelope.
