DIY: el elefante

Sometimes during my lunch breaks I like to stroll around IKEA. On one of my trips, I became enamored with these art cards:

 

I wanted to make a card for someone, so I decided to use the IKEA art cards as inspiration for this project.

A couple of years ago, I was at Target and bought some scrapbooking paper...even though I don't scrapbook I bought them because 1) it was $1 2) i loved the prints on the paper. And I have finally put it to good use!




I made my own stencil for el elefante and cut away! Also, this card could serve as a double purpose: 1) a card (obviously) 2) if you buy a frame, you can frame it and it can decorate the walls/desk of your cubicle, office, or room! If you are drawing impaired and want to make el elefante for yourself, shoot me an email at absurdlypeculiar@gmail.com and i'll send you the stencil I made!
