Circl-Ed Elephant


The challenge at Craft Your Passion this week is CAS (Clean & Simple).We have the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I think I’ve gone about as CAS as can be with my card.I’ve used the wonderful Edward Elephant – Happy Birthday.He is actually found in the Gift Tags section at Bugaboo Stamps.First I digitally paper pieced the background with a paper from the Swiss Dots III collection by Floppy Latte Designs using PSE 8.Then using MyVerse Editor Plus I chose a template for the size of card I wanted.This is really for making inserts but it takes the hard work out of creating your own base card templates 🙂 Once printed onto some leather textured card,which I thought would look good with the ele image, and trimmed to size I filled in the rest of the image with Copic Ciao Markers.I deliberately went for some bright ,contrasting colours.Well that’s it,nothing else…..:D
