Video : Painted Blooms on Safari!

Me and my bright ideas, I really wanted to pop these elephants up and it would have made more sense and been so much easier to adhere them directly to the card front, but Oh No, so I did it and am so glad, love the subtle dimension…  although next time maybe not lol.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

  1. stunning sure had a lot of work with the elephants..but the effect is so pretty!

  2. Therese, this card is so effective with the repetition of the die cuts – love it! If I may offer a tip for mounting ‘fiddly’ bits – try craft foam which now comes with adhesive on one side – die cut from this instead of white card, them use Tombow mono multi to adhere it to your card front. Easier than cutting those tiny bits of foam, and gives a very even surface. I’ve only just found out about this product, so you probably already know this! Thank you so much for your fab work!

    1. Thanks so much for this tip Ann, I have tried it previously and found that the foam can ‘stretch’ but I’m thinking it definitely might be worth another go… maybe I’ll try the thinner foam, it might not ‘squish’ so much in the bigshot. Have a great week! Therese

      1. re the craft foam – the thinner one I have used cut words very well without any stretching that I could detect – it is 2mm thick. I found it OK even for words/script so it may be easier to use than the thicker foam. 🙂

  3. Well worth all that effort – fabulous card, Therese.

    I use Ellen Hutson’s craft board for my dies – it is not adhesive, so you do use a lot of adhesive – very forgiving and gives your die cuts a lovely smooth finish.

    On reading Ann’s comment above, I have seen craft foam being used, so may try that too 🙂

  4. Love these elephants on parade! And your video! Such a sweet card. Might have to give this idea a go. Really wonderful card. Easter Blessings to you and your family.

  5. Love, love, love this card!! Isn’t it funny how the simplest idea’s can be the most effective. I think I might have to CASE this one (or add it to my list of cards of your’s that I would like to try…). I must tell you, Phoebe was just sitting beside me while I was watching the video. She thought your name was ‘Three’s’. I had to have a little giggle…….

  6. Wow this is gorgeous! I would never thinking of buying a diecut like that but oh I love the look of this card!! I thing the added dimension is certainly worth the effort!!
