Mama Elephant February Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!




www.mamaelephant.com


Today, I'm sharing a pop up box card featuring the new Picnic With Friends and Picnic With Friends Creative Cuts. The illustrations are so sweet and adorable, it's impossible not to love this set.




To begin, I stamped and colored the images from Picnic With Friends and the birds from Tea With Friends with Copics. I cut them out with the coordinating creative cuts. I stamped sentiment with black ink on white cardstock and cut them out and added trimmed blue card stock behind it.



I made a box card that folds flat to 5 1/2 " x 4 1/4 and fits in an A2 envelope.

I created the inserts for the box with Borderlines Trio Creative Cuts. I added die-cut grass to the front and the sides using the Grassy Trio Creative Cuts. I ink blended the clouds on the back panel with an acetate stencil I made using the cloud border from Landscape Trio Creative Cuts.

I glued down the images to the box card as shown. Two of the flying birds are attached to a strip of thin acetate and then to the box. The sentiment was mounted with foam tape. That's it for today.





Here's a quick video of me opening the card.



Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day!
Happy card making!!

Hugs, Amy
