Another rocking elephant

This is my second post today.

My earlier post shared all about our latest challenge
Challenge #118 - Pastel Colors
at the
Crafty Gals Corner

I had so much fun colouring the super cute Elly The Elephant Dancing digital stamp by Sasayaki Glitter (one of our generous challenge sponsors) that I made two rocker cards, a scalloped one and a round one.  The cool thing about both is that when you tap one side, they really do rock from side-to-side.

You can see the scalloped version of my card HERE.


I opened the digital image on my Silhouette Cameo design mat with the rocker card cut file.
I adjusted the size of the digital image to fit inside the top round panel, printed the image on X-Press It blending card then cut with my Cameo.

I "set" the image with my heat gun then coloured with Copic markers.

I added a small offset to the image panel and cut this extra layer in black textured cardstock, along with a variety of music notes and music note flourishes.  The black panel ties the black of the image and flowers in the patterned paper with the music notes.  Although this card is the same size as the scalloped version, the image panel is larger, which is a bonus, as it allowed me to use the larger (appropriately named) beautiful music note flourish from the cut file detailed below.

I cut the card base and large accent panel from a soft candy pink cardstock, a shade that matches the flowers perfectly.  I cut the top decorative panel from patterned paper and an additional panel in white cardstock to add the sentiment inside the card.
