It's amazing to me how sometimes card challenges will really push me to things that I wouldn't have thought of on my own. Last night, I had three challenges that I wanted to work on but I knew I needed to get them all into one card because I didn't have a lot of time. Combining them made something so cute and unexpected!
I started with the basics: an A2 kraft base and a piece of orange cardstock embossed with a QuicKutz embossing folder (Retro Squares). Texture requirement met. Next, I knew I needed to add an Elephant, so I looked on MyCutSearch and decided to use the Elephant from New Arrival. I cut her at 2 inches. Elephant requirement met.
With one challenge to go, I knew I had to make it Halloween themed. I decided to use the witches hat and broom from 3 Birds on Parade. I cut them at 4 inches to make them the right size for Ms. Elephant. I saw that her broom was blending in too much with the orange background, so I put a piece of purple behind her. Then I put the twine on the other side and cut a tag from Elegant Edges. I stamped the word "best" from Everyday Expressions by Stampabilities and "witches" is from Jessie's ABCs by Lawn Fawn. It's on foam dots, because of the twine behind it.
This card is being entered into the following challenges:
