"What She Said" featuring Mama Elephant

Hi crafty friends! Today I have super cute birthday card to share with you featuring the new "Three Amigos" set by Mama Elephant. This set is just so cute and I love how it works for so many different types of occasions. I hope to make a few more cards using this set in the near future. My pile of unused products is quickly growing, and while I suppose it's a good problem to have, I'm trying to find time to make a few cards using each new stamp set.

"What She Said' Birthday Card by Handmade by Yuki | "Three Amigos" by Mama Elephant

I started off by die cutting the focal panel using one of the Simon Says Stamp "Stitched Squares" dies. I stamped the triangle background stamp from the Mama Elephant "On Point Borders" set in Simon Says Stamp "Sea Glass" dye ink. I then used an ink blending tool to sponge on some "Sea Glass" ink to the edges. I stamped and colored the images using Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used the little bow from Lawn Fawn's "Critters at the Dog Park" and fussy-cut it out leaving a white border to match the other images.

Cat: C0, C2, R20
Raccoon: N1, N2, N4, T4, T5, R20
Bow: BG10, BG11
Signs: W0, W2, W4

I then adhered the stamped images onto a small hill I had die cut using a stitched border die from the "Borderlines Trio" set by Mama Elephant. I die cut two thin scalloped stripes using the medium scalloped die from the "Stitched Scalloped Borders" set by Lawn Fawn. I die cut the background using a large stitched square die from Simon Says Stamp "Sea Glass" cardstock. To add some subtle texture, I stamped the Hero Arts "Envelope Pattern" background in the same "Sea Glass" ink. It's a little difficult to see in the photo, but in real life it adds subtle texture to the background panel. I used a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" cardbase and finished the card with a little bit of white twine.

This was such a cute and simple card to make and I just love how it turned out. I couldn't help but smirk when I originally saw the sentiments included in this set because it reminded me of my boyfriend and I. I usually take care of birthday cards, wrap the gifts and write the birthday messages. And then at some point, I tell him "sign here" lol. So I thought the "what she said" sentiment was so fitting. I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks again for stopping by! ♥
