Card: Elephant footprints

Elephant footprints


Copic-coloured elephant with a homemade footprint stamp.

Inspired by:

Gerda Steiner’s 72H weekend challenge.


The elephant digital stamp was printed on Copic-safe Neenah solar white card and coloured with Copic markers. The bottom edge was shaped using a border die. Then I realised that neither of the elephant stamp sets I own have a footprint stamp in them, so I had to quickly search to check what an elephant footprint looked like and then carve a stamp. The footprints were stamped on the bottom strip of the card base and the elephant panel was mounted above it. I die cut a small banner, stamped the sentiment, and trimmed it to fit alongside the elephant.

Lessons Learned:

Life gets in the way. I had intended making this in time for Gerda Steiner’s 72H challenge, but then our neighbour’s cat brought some baby guinea pigs home to play with, which scuppered my crafting plans.
