Sweet Little One Elephant Onesie Note Card

My card basket is lopsided on the blue to pink ratio! Add one to the blue side.

I stamped the elephant in gray and embossed. I wanted it to have more loft, so I overstamped in VersaMark (clear) and embossed again. Perfect!  Good thing I left the elephant stamp on the MISTI, so lining up the second stamping was a no brainer.

Supplies:  Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Stampin’ Up!, Sugar Pea Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Night of Navy, inks – Lawn Fawn Manatee, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), VersaFine Clair Twilight, VersaMark, dies – Spellbinders (rectangle), Sugar Pea Designs (onesie), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

I had Technique Tuesday’s Waffle Lot stamp set out working on a Valentine card.

For this one, I pulled out an old Provo Craft embossing folder (Traffic Jam) to repeat the waffle dents on the background.
