Patchwork Baby

This is my last Sweet Baby card, at least for now! This time the cute little elephant image got some love. Whereas the first two cards came together very quickly, I really labored over this one. It took me a long time to figure out where I was going with it and how it was all going to come together. But I do like the end result!

Once I'd settled on using this layout, it was fun to create different little vignettes in each square. The elephant was die cut and stamped with Cool Caribbean ink. The green mat behind the elephant was embossed with my Textured Stripes embossing folder. Behind the button, the Whisper White layer was embossed with Swiss Dots. And behind the die cut heart the green layer was impressed with a Wood Grain impression plate. Lots of different textures! I used a paper piercer to add some interest under the sentiment. All of the squares are popped up with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! :)
