Swinging Borders - Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight

Hello friends! Today, Mama Elephant's design team is showcasing the fun and versatile Swinging Borders stamp set. 

For my card, I created a patterned background using the Swinging Borders. I also used the adorable Birthday Monkeys and Tags A Lot Creative Cuts.

To begin, I stamped the images from Birthday Monkeys and colored them with Copic markers. After, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then, on trimmed white cardstock, I stamped the entire panel with the the flag banner from Swinging Borders  to create a patterned paper using gray Copic friendly ink. I loosely colored the flags with Copic markers. 

For the front tag panel, I die-cut white cardstock with a small tag die from Tags A Lot Creative Cuts. I stamped the confetti to add interest with colored dye ink. I assembled the tag with the twine as shown. 

For the sentiment, I die-cut colored cardstock with a wavy banner die from Tags A Lot Creative Cuts and embossed the sentiment in white.

To finish, I foam mounted the tag on top of the background panel. Then, I foam mounted the images and the sentiment as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Visit Mama Elephant Blog for more inspiration from the design team using the new Swinging Borders set.
