Hi friends! Happy Friday! As you’ve seen, we are celebrating all that is FABULOUS in Mama Elephant as our Brand of the Month! Scroll on for a CODE for special savings!
Also! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Keeway Tsao as our special guest with some super sweet inspiration!
The Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics die is not only a great set for creating slim sized cards, but also perfect for creating cute mini sized cards! I was inspired by my teammate Vera’s use of these dies during our release that I knew I wanted to share more projects with her creative use of these dies. When the slim line card is folded is half, you can create small cards of 4.25” by 3.5”. I found these to be the perfect to size to leave a small note and even sandwich in a gift card in. To showcase this use, I have paired the Slim Card Basics with the Zodiac Rooster, Little Chickie Agenda, and Paola’s Wishes stamp sets.
I started by stamping several images from Zodiac Rooster and Little Chickie Agenda in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored up the images with copic markers. I then used their coordinating dies to die cut each image out.
I created a soft ink blended background with Blueprint Sketch and Shaded Lilac distress oxide inks on Bristol paper, and then die cut this piece out with the stitched rectangle from Slim Card Basics. This was cut in half, approximately at the 4” mark. On each piece, I heat embossed a sentiment from Paola’s Wishes in white.
For the base of the card, I used the scallop frame from Slim Card Basics out of grey card stock and folded this in half. I added my ink blended stitched background onto each of these with liquid adhesive, then followed by the images popped up with foam tape. And this completes both of my mini cards!
