Party with the Pachyderms

It's time for a new biweekly challenge beginning today, Monday, July 15, through Sunday, July 29, 2019. Double Trouble Challenge #33 requires a project for a child or baby. The option is to feature a zoo animal. The Double Dare is to submit your card to our partner, Crafter's Café Challenge Blog #223. Be sure to check their guidelines before creating your project for submission.

Onto a white card base (4.5" x 3.25"), the die cut panel was adhered. The next layer is a panel of blue, followed by an embossed panel in white. The other elements (elephant, balloon & party hat) were stamped and die cut, then backed with foam tape and adhered. The banners & sentiment were stamped with silver ink and die cut. I found some glitter nail polish in my stash and drizzled that onto the two banners then adhered them with. The stars and sequins were added. The inside was decorated with a companion elephant stamp. The finished size is A2. (5.5" x 4.25")

We hope you'll visit our blogs and join in the challenge! Click HERE for DTC33 and HERE for CCCB #223.
