Mama Elephant March Stampede & Video


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!
Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!


Today,  I'm gonna share my project using "Spring Garden" along with the coordinate die cut and  also "Picket Fence" Creative Cuts.
First, I have an idea to create vellum envelopes for seed packet which are perfect for gardening gift, thank you gift or present for anyone who loves to garden.



Just a simple vellum envelopes, I adhered the colored images on envelopes and heat embossed the sentiment  using embossing pearl - silver powder. 



For my second project, I created a set of card with spring colors 



So in love with the boy and the girl in this set, designed by Luli Bunny (♥.♥)





Here’s a video to show you how I created my projects.
