This is my second post in one day! I'm trying to get the hang of this, and you know what they say about practice? This is a card I took to a baby shower over the weekend. I started with an ivory base and added a layer of blue and green gingham from "Small Wonders" from K & Co. I've had this paper in my stash for quite awhile and was glad to finally find a purpose for it. To that, I added a large stripe of the striped paper from the same collection. I stamped the elephants (Brenda Walton stamp) in moss green on white paper, embossed them with a powder named "Kaleidoscope". It's kind of shimmery, but clear. Then punched with an embossing scallop punch. I distressed the border and "popped" it on the stripe. The small elephants across the top are actually a MS stamp which I used on a plain cotton twill ribbon. Then I stamped the "boy" in the same moss green and once again embossed. Below is the inside of the card. I used a SU stamp for this. The recipient of this card loved it!
