Today I'm sharing a birthday themed card showcasing the new Mama Elephant Number It Stamps and Dies. I created a framed farm animals scene by combining the greeting and die cut number with the Madison Avenue Frame and the stamped and die cut Lunar Animals.
To create my card, I die cut watercolor cardstock using the Madison Avenue scalloped rectangle die, keeping the frame and inside rectangle. I cut the frame again, keeping only the inside rectangle and saving the second frame for another proejct. I also cut the frame from fun foam.
From the second inside rectangle I die cut a grass border using one of the Grassy Trio Border Dies. On the grassy border, I applied Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. On the frame and solid rectangle I applied Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Ink along the bottom to match the grassy border. I blended the Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create a "sky" effect. I spritzed all pieces with water using a Distress Sprayer, letting the water sit for 30-45 seconds, allowing the water a chance to react with the Distress Inks, then I blotted up the excess water using a dry paper towel.
I die cut the number 3 from watercolor cardstoc using the Number It Die Collection. I applied Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to the number. I wrapped a bit of thin twine around the number and secured the number to the card as shown.
I stamped the horse, chicken, and horse from the Lunar Animals Stamp Set on smooth watercolor cardstock using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink. I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
I applied the critters to the card and secured the twine to the card by strategically adding Glossy Accents to hold it in place.
