Mama Elephant – November Stampede

November 15, 2015

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


I used the Lucky Envelope die to cut my lucky envelope out. Using post-its and masking tape, I blended some triangles onto the white envelope using pink, red and gold ink. I adhered the cherry blossom, lucky cat and the cherry blossom branch from Lunar Extras to decorate the front of the envelope.
