Happy Birthday with Mama Elephant

Here are 2 birthday cards I made using the Mama Elephant Make a Wish stamp set.

Both of these cards are 5.25x4.5 and were made with the following:
  • Mama Elephant Make a Wish stamp set
  • Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
  • WOW Metallic Brass Embossing Power
  • Versamark
  • Distress Ink Festive Berries, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn (used for the lighter colored card)
  • Pan Pastels 430.5 Magenta, 250.5 Dairylide Yellow, 640.4 Permanent Green Shade (used on the darker card)
To make the cards:

  1. For the darker card, I randomly added the Pan Pastels to the card stock, making sure to overlap the color.  The Pan Pastels were then sealed. 
  2. For the lighter card, I used watercolor paper, wet it and then randomly added the distress ink. 
  3. Once both were dry, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, then added the embossing powder, and heat set. Both were then cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.
  4. A larger rectangle was used to cut the backgrounds. 
  5. All pieces were then added to the card fronts.
