Mama Elephant November 2020 Release Stampede

It’s time for the Mama Elephant November 2020 Release, the last release of the year! I’ve seen so many of you sharing your spectacular holiday cards on social media and some of you even say you’re done! Wow! Are you ready to think about the next holiday then? I’m talking about Valentine’s and the New Year!

Today’s card features the new Aida Zamora illustrated set called Up With Love. Our adorable critters and floating up into the sky, holding onto heart shaped balloons. The little ducke at the bottom is my favorite, but they are all incredibly sweet!

These images were just too perfect for a slimline vertical card to accentuate the heights these critters are reaching. I used a cloud stencil to ink blend many layers of clouds with Speckled Egg distress oxide ink. I also die cut three cloud layers using the Landscape Trio dies for the top and bottom of the card. My slimline card was cut to a 8.5″ by 3.75″ size and fits in a #10 letter envelope.

I used the bottom layer cloud as a place to stamp my sentiment. My copic colored images were die cut with the coordinating dies and added to the scene along with the die cut cloud layers with foam tape for some fun dimension.
