Welcome to another fabulous week of crafting with the Eclectic Ellapu team. Our hostess this week is Laurian and she has picked an interesting theme: Oldies Birthdays. There are loads of fun and humorous images out there to celebrate another year in an older person's life but I decided to make a more "elegant" card but with a subtle poke at the birthday girl's (advanced) age!
|The papers are from Basic Grey's "Indian Summer" 6x6 pad. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's "It's Your Birthday" stamp set, heat embossed in white EP straight on to the patterned paper. I also added a bow in dark red to finish the card.|
|This beautiful elephant stamp is from Chocolate Baroque's "Indian Elephant" set, stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle and coloured with SN and Promarkers. I also added some Gold Liquid Pearls and Red Stickles dress up this noble creature. To cut him out I used Spellbinders Oval die and inked the edges with TH's Antique Linen.|
|For the inside I picked a sentiment from Chocolate Baroque's "Birthday Words" and stamped it in Memento Rhubarb Stalk.|
Challenges for this card:
