Mama Elephant Highlight: Winter Wonderland

Good morning! Today, we're kicking off the Mama Elephant October highlights with Winter Wonderland. This is a must have set for the holidays! I created two cards for this highlight.

"Sparkle and Shine" watercolor card: I clear embossed the birch trees and super cute mama and baby deer images. I then applied a pink, purple, and orange watercolor background to create a pinkish sunset sky. Lastly, I stamped metallic gold stars to create the night sky and finished it off with the fun sentiment, "sparkle and shine" to a banner.



"In the Lane" postcard: I stamped a single layer postcard so that it'd be easy to mail out. I wanted to focus mostly on the baby deer but set her in a snow washed simple scene, so I kept the colors simply black and white. I then applied pink, orange, purple, and gold inks to the baby deer image and stamped her along with the stars in the same colors. Lastly, I wanted to point out how the birch tree can be used not only vertically, but also horizontally as a tree branch as I have here. I added some bells and a birdhouse to decorate the tree branch.


Materials used: Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland, Memento Ink in Tuxedo BlackTsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz metallic pigment ink, Colorbox Chalk inks
