The Pachyderm Party

The stamp and die sets I used today always put a smile on my face - I just love these cuties!

The layout was inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #123. There were so many possibilities with this unique sketch and I decided to use some cute critters.

The images except the banners were stamped on white cardstock then all of the images were die cut. Using cardstock that already had a pattern on it for the card base, a panel of Pool Party with a stamped sentiment was adhered. Next a panel of silver embossed foiled paper was added and a panel of white that was colored by using the DTP method so it would match the color of one of the stamped images. The oval was popped up with craft foam and the images were all layered on to the card. The inside of the card was stamped with a bird and a gift box.

For paper crafting fun, join the challenge at the AHSC blog.
