Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Hello

Hey guys!  Time for another Mama Elephant's March release highlight!  Remember, the new release is live now and available for purchase in the store!  Today's set to highlight is Hello!


If you came to the Stampede, you've already seen me use these stamps:)  Aren't they fun?  The variety of sentiments in this set will match so many images!  I decided to pair the smile speech bubble with, of course, a camera stamp!  I used the camera from We Click to create this easy peasy card:)  


I wanted to  do something to frame the image, so I thought photo corners would go well with the camera theme.  I don't have a photo corner punch or die, so I did a cheater version.  If you look closely, the main image is on a panel (3-3/4" wide by 5" high).  To get the look of photo corners, I put a gold triangle in each corner of the card base.  (I used a 1" square punch to make 4 triangles)  When you place the panel over the card base/ triangles, voila!  "Faux-to" corners!  For fun, I used shiny gold cardstock (which you know I am in love with lately!).  

THANK YOU for stopping in!  Stop by the other Mama Elephant team members and see what they did this fun set!  
JJ Bolton (you are here)

Come back tomorrow for the last of the highlights from the March release!  Have a wonderful day!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
