My Cricut Craft Room - Letter E


     We are up to the letter E at My Cricut Craft Room and this week I have an elephant card for you.
     I used a stamp pen to ink the edges of my image. The brush tip makes it easier to get in those tight spots. "Congratulations!" is stamped in watermark ink. It's the same ink I use for embossing. My bow is a faux-bow. I made a loop of ribbon and slipped it under the ribbon band. Then I added tails and glued them on the inside. This way the bow lays flat, it looks the way I want and when I mail it it should stay together.

Recipe:

   Elephant - 3"
Circle - 5 1/4", 4 1/2"
Card Base - 5 1/4" x 11 1/2"
1" Maise Grosgrain
