Sasayaki Glitter

Prize: 1 Digital Image


Today I have used the super cute Elly The Elephant Dancing digital stamp by Sasayaki Glitter, one of our generous sponsors this week.

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.

I cut the card base and scalloped 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.

I had so much fun with this image and rocking card design that I made two 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 round version of my card HERE.
