Ir-elephant Without You

Hi crafty friends!

Today is my sister's birthday ... as she love elephants I normally make her an elephant themed card to give her. Earlier on in the year Art Impressions came out with their PopCard stamp/die sets one of which was an elephant, of course I knew immediately what I would be using for her card. I have had the set sitting on my desk for a number of months and can finally get to use it.

This one was a lot easier to put together than the first PopCard I made earlier in the year when I used the Panda PopCard set. Since then there have been a couple of videos which I was able to watch to learn the easiest way to create one of these. 

I used the Lawn Fawn Flower Hillside Pop-Up Add-On to create the grassy area with flowers. 

Here is a quick video to show my card in action.

Here is a side view of the inside of the card so you can see the layers used to create the elephant.

I kept the front of my card fairly simple seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. However I had to play with my new Go Press & Foil Machine and hot foil stamps and foil. All the birthday hot foil stamps I ordered are still on backorder so I had to make  do with this Celebrate sentiment. Love how shiny this is in real life as you will see if you watch the video above.
