Mama Elephant October 2021 Release Stampede

Hello ya’ll! Excited for the Mama Elephant October release? I sure am! This month’s goodies are so cute and it sure was fun creating more holiday themed cards for the season. Today’s card will showcase the Little Gingerbread Agenda, Everything Nice, and the Wreath Shaker CC (designed by me!).

I’ve been obsessed with creating non-A2 sized cards. Maybe I’m just looking for a little variety in my cardmaking, but creating shaped cards have truly been something I really enjoyed as of late. So I designed the Wreath Shaker CC not only to be able to make a wreath shaped card but also to provide another platform to combine them with all the cute agenda sets!

You can use the circle windows in the Wreath Shaker CC as shaker wells or you can use it as ornament windows for your agendas to peek through. I’ve used it here as areas to add red iridescent sequins shakers that give my Little Gingerbread Agenda a cute, interactive backdrops!

The Wreath Shaker CC comes with a layered die to create this bow. I die cut it out of red cardstock and simply used my copic markers to add darker shades of the card stock for the layering since I don’t own a lot of cardstock colors. I used a white gel pen to add some details to the whole card and completed it with a sentiment from Everything Nice.

  1. I love the shaker wreath, and can’t wait to play with it. I love wreaths with little vintage village scenes, so I’m planning to use Me and My Yeti and Gnomie Tree for the little homes and trees.

  2. SUPER super cute!!!

  3. Love that big red bow paired with these ginger peeps on this fun shaped card.
