Mama Elephant 13 Card


Today I'm sharing a card I made for a special girl who just turned 13!

I wanted it to have some sort of special element because becoming a teenager is a pretty big deal!
It had to be sparkles!

I used Mama Elephant's Up and Away  stamp set for the little critters and the Mama Elephant Balloon Et-Cetera set for the '13' balloons that they are floating on. So fun!

First I cut out a stitched rectangle for the background layer, using the largest die from Lawn Fawn's Large Stitched Rectangles. For the clouds I used Lawn Fawn's Puffy Cloud Borders on some white sparkle cardstock and some vellum.
I stamped the critters with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them in with Copics.

I stamped the '13' balloons with Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo ink. I propped them up with some foam tape and attached some twine to both the balloons and behind the critters hands.

I cut some pink cardstock with the 'Happy' script die from Mama Elephant and heat embossed the birthday sentiment from the Playful Pups set. (I masked off the 'happy' part of the sentiment.)

I then cut a banner shape using the MFT pierced flags dies. I propped that up with some foam tape for dimension. Clear wink of stella added some extra sparkle to the 'happy', the '13' and the critters' cheeks.
I finished the design with some clear sequins.
I hope you like it!
