{Mama Elephant} Stamp Highlight: True Friend

It's Day 2 of the Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights for the February Release and today the design team is featuring True Friend. This stamp set includes seven uplifting two-part sentiments that can be used on their own or combined with each other and even with other stamp sets.

When my son saw this card, he asked, "Did panda win an Olympic medal?" Grrr, so cute!! That's pretty much the gist of my encouragement card. I thought that it would be so cute to combine the Confetti and Dainty Bow Creative Cuts to create a medallion for the panda from Pandamonium. He's certainly earned it. ;)

I sponged a rainbow of distress inks on to Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock - this stuff is what dreams are made of - die cut from Femme Frames Creative Cuts, misted it with water and dried it using a heat tool.

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

See you tomorrow for Day 3 of the Stamp Highlights. :)

This really is adorable, Em, and what a great sentiment. Your little medal/medallion is perfect. Now I'm imagining the Panda Olymppics... faster, higher, CUTER. :D
