Hello crafty friends and Happy Valentine's Day!! 💗 Today I am bringing you a sweet card created with a digital stamp from KaDoodle Bug Designs. Meet Ellie the Elephant.....Isn't she the cutest?!?!
Ellie and her chocolate candies screamed Valentine's Day to me, so I had to get her and color her up for a quick card. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers and Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils to color her up and bring her to life. I added some accents to her using a White Gelly Roll Pen and finished her off by adding Glossy Accents to her candy. I think she looks just darling!
As she was set off to the side to dry, I started on my card base. My card is an A2 sized card and the base was made using 80lb Neenah White Solar cardstock. I cut a piece of ReCollections Gray cardstock 1/8" smaller than my card base and adhered it onto the base using my permanent Scotch Adhesive tape runner. I then cut another mat out of patterned paper from Stampin' Up! Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, 1/8" smaller than the Gray mat and adhered it using the same adhesive.
Next, I die cut a heart patterned piece of cardstock from the Teresa Collins - Save the Date Designer Series Parper Pad using the Stitched In Circles dies from Craftin Desert Divas and adhered that onto my card mats. I added my sweet elephant to the center of my die cut using adhesive foam squares so that she would pop just a little bit.
My sentiment, "You're Sweet as Candy" is from the Sweet Shop Stamp Set from Craftin Desert Divas. I stamped the sentiment onto my card using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using my heat gun and Stampendous! Stamp-n Stuff Embossing Powder in Detail Silver. I then added some twine from ReCollections to finish it off.
