Happy Birthday Elephant Trio

Welcome to the Universally Crafty Die-Versions Blog! Karen here and today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my son featuring the Elephant Die from Die-Versions. I die cut him twice out of black cardstock and once out of chipboard. I placed the chipboard elephant on a Ranger craft sheet on an electric griddle heated to 300 degrees and covered him with ultra-thick embossing powder. After that melted, I sprinkled several aged embossing powders from Stampendous on him and let that melt. I removed him from the heat and while still molten, stamped him with a barb wire background stamp from Technique Junkies. This technique is called Deep Impressions and is one of many Frantage techniques originated and taught by Fran Seiford of Stampendous.

I attached the three elephants on a card base I embossed with an Embossalicious embossing folder and sponged with brown distress ink.

Thanks for visiting the Die-Versions blog. I hope my card inspired you to try some of the many great Die-Versions dies available at the website.
