Elephant Valentine

Hard to believe January is two thirds over and Valentine's Day will be here soon. The Cutting Cafe design team is creating Valentine projects for you this week. As always, there will be lots of fun ideas to help inspire you with your own ♥ projects.

I created this card using VALENTINE ANIMALS AND BUGS...PRINTABLES and 
The elephant is a colored printable and I traced the ear and paper pieces it using some patterned paper for a different look. I added the red and white thread to imitate the  string tied around the elephant's trunk. Using a light colored gray marker (N89) from Tombow helped "ground" my elephant and add a little shadow on and around the image.
Be sure to visit the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of every month to see the design team's projects in which you can leave a comment to be entered into a drawing to win 3 FREE sets of your choice from the online store.
