Vintage Elephant Noel Card

I'm Card Captain of the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group for this week, so for 5 days I'll be showing you several works using Michael Strong's stamps. I hope you'll find them inspiring.

My 3rd card for this week is a Vintage Elephant Noel Card.

It's a Vintage style Noel (Christmas) card in non-traditional colors, and I assume that the Elephant carrying the holiday's gifts isn't the traditional Santa's sleigh either (lol).












I used a Kraft card basis, and contrasting shades of brown with strong turquoise for a non-traditional, and therefore more special color combo.
The Noel sentiment was made of wood and colored on mat gold, enhanced by a dark brown framing paper and a turquoise bling.

The patterned background paper is in shabby chic style, complementing the other elements.
It was inked all around, to give it a distinct, eye-catching frame.











I stamped it on a contrasting turquoise CS using VersaFine Ink - Black Onyx, and cut it with scissors, then added a tiny bling to enhance the eye.
The Noel sentiment, as well as the Elephant, were glued 3D for extra dimension – you can see how it actually adds volume to the card.
Several blings were added for extra glam.
