BITTEN BY THE BUG 2 ELEPHANT CHALLENGE

This is my first challenge at BBTB2. I think elephants are so adorable and wanted to try making a card with one. Here is my submission.

I used 2 Cricut cartridges, Cricut Sampler and Country Life. The elephant was cut at 2 1/2"  from page 49. I used the shadow and bonus feature.  The banner was cut at 1 1/2 from the Country Life cartridge.

I made the card A2 size using blue card stock.  I then cut kraft paper slightly smaller and used my EK success corner punch.  The papers I used where Echo Park Dots and Strips.

The crinkle ribbon I made using seam binding I dyed myself using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I found several very good tutorials on You Tube.

For dimension I used pop dots to pop the banner off the page. I used matching embroidery floss to string the banner across the card.

How do you like the goggle eyes on my elephant? Cute right!

Join me in this elephant challenge over at BBTB2. Hope you have as much fun as I did.

Bye for now and keep on crafting with the Cricut.
