ME STAMP HIGHLIGHT - HAPPY CHIC WISHES

Hello and welcome to the Mama Elephant's January Stamp Highlight Series. Today the design is showcasing the adorable Happy Chic Wishes stamp set.


 To begin making the card, I Copic colored the stamped bunny on the cloud from the Wish Upon a Star stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating Wish Upon a Star CC.

The A2 sized front panel was ink blended with Distress Oxides. Once dried, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Happy Chic Wishes stamp set using silver and white embossing powders.

The vellum clouds were die-cut using the Puffy Clouds CC.

To assemble the card, I glued on the vellum clouds to the front panel and I foam mounted the colored image as shown.




That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed my project. Thank you for visiting me!
