Happy Birthday Elephant Trio from Die-Versions


Happy Thursday! It's my turn to post a card on Die-Version's blog and mine. Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my son featuring the Elephant Die from Die-Versions. I die cut him twice out of black cardstock and once out of chipboard. I placed the chipboard elephant on a Ranger craft sheet on an electric griddle heated to 300 degrees and covered him with ultra-thick embossing powder. After that melted, I sprinkled several aged embossing powders from Stampendous on him and let that melt. I removed him from the heat and while still molten, stamped him with a barb wire background stamp from Technique Junkies. This technique is called Deep Impressions and is one of many Frantage techniques originated and taught by Fran Seiford of Stampendous.

I attached the three elephants on a card base I embossed with an Embossalicious embossing folder and sponged with brown distress ink.

Remember you can get a 15% discount on any of Die-Version's great dies by simply using my discount code karen15 when you check out at the Die-Versions website.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Scrapy Land to emboss and use one of the dies they sell. Of course, I used a Die-Version die. Also in the anything goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

Love what you have done with this, Karen! The combination of EP colors, and the background stamp really give an "African" feel to your card! Thanks for joining us in the Scrapy Land Challenge! Hope to see your pretty projects again.
