Happy Times - baby elephant (Pollyanna Pickering) Kraft DL card - Day 139 of my 366 day challenge


Happy Times - baby elephant (Pollyanna Pickering) Kraft DL card - 
Day 139 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft Addicts!

This really cute painting from Pollyanna Pickering is the inspiration for this DL Kraft card - it comes from the "Walk in the Wild" Card Popper pad (from Creative Crafting World).

Happy Times - baby elephant (Pollyanna Pickering) Kraft DL card
The topper itself is approximately 4" square which meant that it was too big for the card, so I trimmed it and placed it on a mat which I had cut out of black cardstock using one of the Tattered Lace Pin dot square dies.

For the background I cut out two border strips (using the Sue Wilson French die collection) in cream card and glued them to either side of the front of the card.

I then added the main topper to the top half of the card using foam pads to give it some height. I repeated this with the "Happy Times" sentiment which I had mat and layered it on to cream and black cardstock.  To decorate it a bit more,

I used the Nuvo "Pale gold" crystal drops which I think co-ordinated well with the colours in the card.
