Although I hesitate at making circus-themed cards these days (and I really don't mind the trend towards fazing out traditional zoos & animal acts), I just couldn't resist making this card.
The sentiments, from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, were heat-embossed in neon green & stamped again in blue dye ink to create a shadow effect. I put it directly onto this circle-patterned DP from my stash.The seals & elephant were dry-embossed and/or die-cut in my BigShot. I used a shiny, textured blue paper inked with blue ink for the seals; I colored white die-cuts with a fluorescent yellow Copic marker to make shadows. The elephant is cut from another stash DP, that I colored with the same fluorescent yellow marker. I used a QuicKutz die to make the loopy borders. THe star paper is also from my stash. For the base, I embossed a blue cardstock with a bubbly folder.
