White Elephant

In 1949, Berhard Grzimek advertised and sold 1000 tickets to view a white elephant. April Fool's, he only painted a gray elephant white. There are no "white" elephants. Although, there have been a few gray/pink albino elephants. Here is the only way, I will ever see a white elephant. 

   Wild About You
   One of a Kind

   Basic White A-2, 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 3-1/4" Sq.

   Whisper White Craft
   Tuxedo Black Memento

   Heat Embossing
   Die Cutting

   Stitched Shapes Framelits
   Embossing Buddy
   White Embossing Powder
   Halloween Night Washi Tape

First, I prepped the Basic Black square for heat embossing by rubbing it with an embossing buddy. This will keep all the stray powder from sticking unless there is ink or VersaMark on it.

I then stamped an elephant in the center of the Basic Black square, using Whisper White Craft ink. I added white embossing powder to it and heat set it. 

Next, I die cut it, using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I then took a Basic White panel and stamped a sentiment on the bottom. I then added 4 strips of Halloween Night Washi tape to it.

Next, I adhered it to a Basic Black matte, and then onto the Basic White card front.

Lastly, I attached the White Elephant to the top of the card, using dimensionals, and adhered the other Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
