{Mama Elephant} Stamp Highlight: XOXO


It's Day 4 of the Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights for the December Release and today the design team is featuring XOXO. This stamp set is all about love but it's not just for Valentine's Day. It covers a huge range of occasions from encouragement and get well to friendship and birthday! It's the most versatile stamp set you can find in the love category.



To create this shaker card, I die cut the Embellished Tag from the front panel and stamped the sentiment - and panda from Pandamonium - on to the tag. Then I covered the panda with a mask and stamped cascading ombre hearts across the entire tag. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the front panel and created a foam tape frame to hold the microbeads. Then I added a second layer of acetate to the foam to contain the microbeads. Finally, I adhered the shaker panel to the card base.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the design team to see what they came up with using XOXO.
