Large elephant Happy Birthday Shaker Card by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

Have you ever needed a card much larger than the normal A2 size?  I did, so I made this elephant shaker card using the Elephant Twist Ties Set along with the Block Letters Die Set.  It measures 8" x 10 1/2".  It was perfect for a large group of people to sign.
A white piece of paper was stenciled with the Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes using Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink over an Altenew stencil.  The Block Letter Dies were lined up on a T-Square ruler and taped to the paper using low tack tape before being cut out with my die cut machine.  Once they were all cut out I attached a piece of acetate behind the paper with scor-tape.  I added a double layer of foam tape around the words on the back of the paper and added in the confetti before adding a piece of white card stock to the back of  the foam tape.  It was then layered onto a dark blue piece of card stock and then added to the card. The elephants were added to the card with foam tape.
The elephants were stamped onto Canson XL watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and water colored with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I used N25 Lamp black for the bodies of the elephants and 725 Rhodamine Red to accent them.  The flowers were colored with 177 Jade Green, 725 Rhodamine Red and 993 Chrome Orange.  After they dried they were cut out.

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
