Mama Elephant Anniversary Stampede

1 Year Anniversary Stampede BannerToday we are kicking of day 2 of Mama Elephant’s one year celebration. We are showcasing the new products with a fun hop. I chose to feature the new Merry Greetings stamp set. For my first card I stamped the sentiment on the card base. Then I trimmed thin strips of colored card stock and stamped the sentiment again on the strips. I paper pieced the strips onto the card base.
