Melissa from PaperPopsicles Has been busy putting together her new venture. In about 5 days (January 15th) she'll be launching her new store. Very exciting, right?
Well, she asked a handful of her friends to let the word out that she has a freebie on her blog right now for any one that may be interested. It's this fun little elephant shaped card.
I have a couple friends that have just had babies and so I decided to make a patchwork elephant.
I cut the card out once using SCAL and my Cricut. Then using some Cricut markers I used my Cricut to trace another elephant. Then I took a handful of scraps of patterned paper and glued them to the back of the traced elephant. Once the glue was dry, I used the marker line to hand cut the elephant out cutting just inside the outline. I glued the patchwork elephant to the card top adding a bow tie and handwritten "For you!" tag. Then outlined the patchwork elephant and the sections where the papers were joined together with Stickles.
The card needed something else.... So I took one more scrap of paper, rounded the corners and pinched it in the middle with a dab of glue to make a dimensional ear.
The good news is, Melissa is sharing this cute little elephant card with everyone. Yup! A Freebie! As far as I know there isn't a time limit but it wouldn't hurt to run over there right now and pick it up just in case
Hope you're all having a fantastic Sunday.
