H2H - Out with the Old...

Welcome to 2021 and a new year at Heart 2 Heart! 

We are making some changes for this challenge with the start of the new year. There will be two posts each month - the first and third Monday of the month. All design team members will participate in all challenges as well. 

The first challenge of the year is "Out with the Old and In with the New". 

I chose to focus on new products for this challenge - products that are "in with the new" as of January 1. 

The Sweet Safari paper collection is geared toward childhood animals and trips to the zoo... but it can certainly be used for other purposes. I chose to use a few of the papers to create this adorable elephant love card. The elephant was coloured blue to match the papers (who says you can’t have a blue elephant?) I added a tiny envelope with a message inside and the elephant is holding the envelope with his trunk. I coloured a few acrylic hearts to embellish the card. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret this challenge. 

You have until the end of January to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create! 

Products used are all Close To My Heart: 

Paper: Sweet Safari Paper Pack, Blue Skies Cardstock (red), Espresso Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Sundance Cardstock, White Daisy Cards and Envelopes

Stamps: Oh, Hay There

Inks: Intense Black, Avocado, Candy Apple

Accessoires: White Acrylic Hearts, Tri-Blend Markers, Foam Tape, Mini Envelope Thin Cut
