CB Teasers | Jumbo Hugs

Hello there, remember me? :) Sadly I couldn't properly take part in this month's Clearly Besotted Teasers, as I am still not feeling my best. I did start making a card before I went in for my procedure though, and yesterday I managed to stick it all together. I hate missing out on a CB release, so I am really happy to be popping in, even if it is at the last minute!

The whole release is amazing (as always!) but the set that called my name first, was the Petite Baby Shower set. How adorable is this elephant? I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the elephant repeatedly across it (to look like a family of elephants holding tails). I then coloured these in rainbow colours using Copic Markers.
I took another panel of white cardstock and ran this through my Cuttlebug using the PTI Sunrise Impressions 2 Embossing Plate. I then stamped the sentiment from the CB set on top. The panel was cut down and adhered to an A2 SSS Audrey Blue card base with ATG. I then added the elephant panel on top with foam tape.
