Sparkle N Sprinkle Elephant Christmas Tree [10.12.2016]

As a Designer for Sparkle N Sprinkle, I get the pleasure and honor of creating cards with the new monthly releases. Today, I have a fun card to show you from the October Sparkle N Sprinkle Release. I made a card using the digital version of the Elephant Christmas Tree stamp set. Let's check it out.

I printed out two copies the color version of the image on white cardstock. I trimmed down one of the images to a card front size. I fussy cut out all three of the stockings from the extra image, used the Fine Nuvo Glue Pen to roll on some adhesive, then sprinkled on Easy Green semi-transparent glitter on some stocking parts, and Collegiate Garnet glitter on others. I also added some Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft to the tops of the stockings. I used foam adhesive to pop up the stockings a bit and adhered them onto the card panel. Look at all the fun depth and sparkle!

I also decorated the top of the tree. I love stars on tops of trees, and this one is really fun! I fussy cut out the tree image from my second print out, adhered glue with the Fine Nuvo Glue Pen to the star topper, and sprinkled on Mimosa Sparkle N Soft. This gave the star some sparkly and soft goodness. So fun!
I also blinged up the tree. More Fine Nuvo Glue Pen was applied, and I bedazzled up the ornaments with glitter. I used Enlightened Blue for the blue ornaments and Collegiate Garnet for the red ones. I also used more Mimosa Sparkle N Soft  on the stars. I popped up the tree with foam adhesive and adhered it over the tree on the card panel. This made the tree pop and sparkle!
I also decorated up the sweet little elephant. One of my favorite things with the elephant was his teeny tiny heart on his bum. I pulled out my trusty Fine Nuvo Glue Pen again and rolled out some adhesive on his heart. I sprinkled on more Collegiate Garnet, and viola! Shiny, glittery heart!
I also went to town on the Santa cap on the elephant's head. I whipped out my trusty Fine Nuvo Glue Pen again and made it sparkly with some Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. Sparkle N Soft brings a subtler amount of sparkle combined with a softer and poofier texture than pure glitter. It is the perfect embellishment for the cap!
The last addition to my cute and adorable elephant was to paint his toe nails! I used my favorite adhesive, the Fine Nuvo Glue Pen and sprinkled on Sonic Silver microfine glitter. These made his toes so cute! I also added a bit more sparkle (truly, I can't ever get enough!) by drawing the Fine Nuvo Glue Pen around the edges of the card panel, and added a strip of 1/4" Double sided "Tear-ific" Tape around the edges of the card base. I sprinkled more Collegiate Garnet around the edges, and my card was done. 
This was such a fun card to make. The elephant is too cute, and the tree is a lot of fun. I know you will love it too! Give it a try :)
Thanks for stopping by!
