Elephants Remember

White elephants can be seen as special creatures in some cultures. This white elephant card was made to cheer up a friend going through some difficult times.

I was trying for a rich and silky effect by doing a blend of sunrise colors over a cut and embossed background that was then gone over with a Cosmic Shimmer Opal Blaze Polish to make it shimmer. The card base is made from shimmer paper as well.

The elephant’s headpiece and covering also have some of the opal blaze polish. The leafy heart die cut was adhered with foam squares to the embossed layer, and the elephant glued to the leaves.

The foiled sentiment was one that I had made previously in a foiling session. It is adhered with foam squares.

Sequins finish the decorations.

Althrough not pictured, I stamped the back envelope flap with “sending you love and Kindness” from a Hero Arts using an ombre ink pad.
