Indian Archway (by Carole)

Hello everyone, our Guest Design Team member Carole is back with her second post this month, and has created a delightful card with an Eastern theme.

Carole writes:

Hello everyone,
I am delighted to be here again and have a very different sample today from my previous one.
I have chosen to use the beautiful Indian Elephant set of stamps for my sample. This set always conjures up colour to me, so I have used brightly coloured Distress Inks for the background.

The card front has two layers. The top one has a die cut label hole cut into the centre to form an aperture with two labels either side.
The layer behind was coloured and then the tree stamped, so that it was positioned centrally and would fit into the aperture space.
The two elephants were stamped, coloured and cut out.
The top layer and labels were then coloured and the labels stuck onto the base. The front section was over stamped with the top of the tree.
This stamp set is so pretty and it has a variety of lovely images on it.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you next time.

Bye for now,



  1. Love this card. The colours are gorgeous. So clever to give it extra depth with the cut-out label shape. These stamps are among my favourites from CB, they're so versatile.

  2. I love the spicy tones you have used with this wonderful pair of elephants Carole and the tree fits in the centre aperture beautifully. A super card! x

  3. Lovely card. Thank you for sharing

  4. Very beautiful, love the colours!
