Baby elephant Pollyanna Pickering 7" x 5" card - DAD - Day 145 of my 366 day challenge

Baby elephant Pollyanna Pickering 7" x 5" card - DAD - 
Day 145 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Once again I have turned to the stunnng artwork from Pollyanna Pickering, and this time I have used the baby elephant image to make this card that could be good for a birthday card or even Father's Day.

Baby elephant Pollyanna Pickering 7" x 5" card - DAD
So, I first of all used one of the larger toppers that comes in the card making "Walk in the Wild" kit and glued it to a small layer of black cardstock. I then took one of the smaller images that is in the Card Popper pad and trimmed it to how I wanted it.

I cut out the Tonic Studios "Honeycomb Simple Screens" border in a darker Kraft card and attached it to the left hand side of the card with a small gap of the white card showing. I then replaced alternating "honeycombs" in a line down the border.

I used foam pads to place the larger of the toppers to the right hand side of the card and stuck the smaller of the images on the bottom left hand corner.

I also cut out the "DAD" sentiment from one of the Tonic Studios relative die sets in cream linen card and separated the letters and stuck them in a diagonal line down the bottom right hand corner.

To finish off the card, I added some "Pale Gold" Nuvo crystal drops in between the honeycombs and also around the smaller image.

And there you are - a simple but fun card which you will be able to buy on my website here
