Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Eggtastic

After cardmaking so many years and constantly making A2 sized cards, I found myself more and more inspired (especially after being introduced to slim sized cards) to pretty much be open to create any size card I wanted to! After all, I do own a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, so I can pretty much create any envelope size I need. I had in mind to create a card with the Gatefold X Fence CC and went for a custom card size to bring my idea to life!

I started by stamping and coloring images from Eggtastic, but I later decided to add a few more birds and butterflies which I borrowed from the sets Tea With Friends and My Pet Kitties. I colored all the images with copic markers and used a white gel pen to add some highlights.

The skies were ink blended with Broken China and Antique Linen distress oxide inks. I also die cut some grass using the Grassy Trio CC and did some light ink blending to the edge with Rustic Wilderness distress oxide to give it a little more interest.

Each side of the fence folds to 2-1/8″ x 3-7/8″, so with both fence flaps closed I doubled up those dimensions for a 4-1/4″ x 3-7/8″ area to create my scene. I trimmed my background down to this size and heat embossed my sentiment in white. All the images were then added with foam tape thereafter.

The fences were die cut out of white card stock and attached to each side of my scene. I closed it up and tied a pink ribbon around it to close the card and leave the surprise inside for the recipient!
