I just wanted to wish you Merry Christmas and share a couple of Christmas card featuring Mama Elephant stamps and dies. Boy, I always find myself making all my Christmas cards in the last minute!
Mama Elephant “Me and My Yeti” stamps are one of my fav Christmas stamps. Last year I made a bunch of cards featuring the Yetis, but for this year’s ones, I wanted to use all the little images included in the set. I took as inspiration Christmas at Bullerby by Astrid Lindgren.
I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die cut them using coordinating dies. I added Lawn Fawn Prisma glitter to the roofs and the trees. Next, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies to make some snowy hills and blended a tiny bit of Cracked Pistachio Distress ink on the top of the hills. Then, I blended Cracked Pistachio and Tattered Rose Distress inks on the background panel and added the sentiment, from Mama Elephant “Sentiments from a Yeti” stamp set, with the word Christmas heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
I used Mama Elephant “Picket Fence” dies so I could have a place for the little girl to sit. I glued all the elements and images to a card base and framed the scene with a frame die cut using Mama Elephant “Madison Avenue” dies. I added polka detail to the frame using a silver pen.
As I had colored more images than I ended using, I decided to make another card. I used Mama Elephant “All Prettied Up” dies to die cut the background panel. As I’m always scared of white space, I stamped a polka pattern using Waffle Flower “Pattern Play” stamps and Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I stamped the sentiment from “Sentiments from a Yeti” with Versafine Onyx black ink.
I thought it will be nice to have the little images on a grid, and I made one using Mama Elephant “Peek a Frame” window die, running it through my Big Shot twice. Then, I blended Cracked Pistachio, Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on the little squares.
Here comes the more tedious part: adding tiny bits of foam tape on the back of the grid. Next, I adhered it to the background and glued the little squares and all the images.
This last card is probably my favorite Christmas card for this year. Hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have an amazing week!
