Hello crafty friends! Thi here today with a project for Mama Elephant! 2020 has been the year of adorable Zodiac animals for Mama Elephant so I decided to combine a few of my favorites for a fun card using the new Slim Card Basics Creative Cuts to make a long, slim card that fits into a standard #10 envelope.

To start, I stamped my images in a dark brown Copic-friendly ink and colored with Copic markers. I choose one critter each from Zodiac Rooster, Zodiac Ox and Zodiac Sheep. The best part of about the Zodiac series is that you can mix and match all the little images, so I borrowed the heart, flower and present from Zodiac Horse since they coordinated with my “thank you” card theme better. I stamped the sentiment from Zodiac Ox with some red pigment ink onto a strip of white card stock. 

For the card base and background, I die cut everything out of the Slim Card Basics Creative Cuts out of colored cardstock. Inside each of the windows, I did a little light ink blending with Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar just for a little interest. I adhered everything together and popped my images onto the card with foam tape. I glued my sentiment strip directly onto my card and my card is finished.
