Gigglin' googlie eyes!
I am participating in a shoebox swap tomorrow evening with some fellow demonstrators so I needed to design a card. First, I love this Wild About You set!! It makes the cutest cards and if you have kids it is perfect for scrapping as well. Second, I have discovered googlie eyes all over again and they just make me giggle!! How can you not smile when you see googlie eyes?! I just love saying "googlie eyes", LOL! So here is my swap card for tomorrow. I thought I would go with more earthy tones since it is fall afterall. I wheeled the crisp cranberry piece with the Kindness jumbo wheel inked in chocolate chip. I added centers to the flowers with my white gel pen. The base is sahara sand. The elephant is stamped in the new buckaroo blue ink. I stamped a second elephant in chocolate chip so I could cut out the ear and pop it up on a dimensional. The ribbon is SU's French Blue grosgrain. The corners are punched with the ticket punch....another fav of mine. I also used the small oval and flower punches to add the accent on the bottom corner. Other than cutting out the ear this is a quick and easy card and even then the cutting isn't bad. Now to go prep the supplies for 15 people!!
