  • W plus 9- 'wishing you' stamps
  • archival ink pad- jet black

I planned out my card according to the sketch, then cut my mats to size. I used stars from the unforgettable set to make a background layer. I cut the second layer into a banner shape and stamped a sentiment from the wishing you set. I added a little ink to the edges of the mats, to softly highlight them. I stamped, coloured and die cut my elephant and balloon images. I glued all the mats down flat and added the images with foam tape. the finishing touch was some wink of stella glitter on the balloon.
