Graphic 45’s Kaleidoscope Elephants – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning to all!

I must say, there are those times when you see a card and just look at it and say – WOW!!! That is the case with the card Holly created today. It smacked me out of the blue and I LOVE IT!!!

Holly fussy cut the elephants from the Kaleidoscope collection by Graphic 45 and created her card front, then adorned those amazing elephants with florals from our Floral Cluster Fall Flowers stamp set that Holly colored and fussy cut. Take a look —

Just pause for a minute and take it all in – so much vibrancy and life!

You can see that the elephants were fussy cut and popped up onto a piece of black cardstock, with the largest ear off the page (love that!). The two florals were stamped, colored to match the paper perfectly and then fussy cut using the Fall Flowers stamp set from our Floral Cluster Series. All the other vibrant papers were included in the Kaleidoscope paper collection.

These elephants are just so captivating!

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
