Mama Elephant April Stampede

April 15, 2013


Welcome to the Mama Elephant April Design Team blog hop! Our March release is now live and available for purchase in the store: www.mamaelephant.com.

For the Stampede, I used both Central Park and Bling together.  This is definitely one of my favorite cards for this release ♥

I blended four colors together onto the cardstock to create a romantic sunset background. I then stamped the cityscape (love!), fussy cut it and adhered it onto the card base with foam tape.
