With Love - elephant calf DL card using Pollyanna Pickering artwork - 
Day 236 of my 366 day challenge


Hi Craft addicts!

I love this image of an elephant calf that Pollyanna Pickering painted and so have used a small tag shape version for this DL card...

With Love - elephant calf DL card using Pollyanna Pickering artwork

  • To make the card - I decided to use the small tag style topper from "Walk in the Wild" card making kit from Pollyanna Pickering (Creative Crafting World).

  • I then cut out the "honeycomb" panel from the "Moroccan Simply Screens" die set from Tonic Studios in gold mirror card, I left a small border on one side of it but just cut it out of the card as I didn't want 2 borders.
  • I also cut one in black card but only really wanted the "waste" so will use the panel on another project.
  • Using one of the border strips from the kit, I glued it to the left hand edge.
  • Before I glued the "Honeycomb" strip to the right hand side, I measured how big the topper was and cut a slit in the honeycombs which would allow it to "peep" out of the strip. I then glued it to the right hand side of the card (making sure that there was no glue near to where the topper would be)  leaving a narrow band of the white card along the edge. 
  • The elephant topper was then placed inside the slit and glued down and I added some foam pads to the left hand side so it stood out a bit.
  • For the rest of the card, I added some of the "gold" and "black" waste to make two gold flowers.
  • The "grass" embellishment was one of the "Oriental" series that came in one of the Tattered Lace USB collections and I went into CANVAS (Brother ScanNCut's web app) and resized it and cut it out in black card.
  • I also used the "With Love" sentiment from the "Walk in the Wild" Paper popper pad and cut it into a banner shape and added it to a circle of black card which I had also cut out using my Brother ScanNCut and attached it to the top right hand corner using foam pads.

  • I also stamped a "With Love" message inside the card using one from Clarity Stamps. I also added an extra doodle to it using a black Fineliner pen.
