Vintage Elephant Clock


Ever have an idea wedge itself in your brain and refuse to leave? A few weeks ago I saw a commercial for the circus and ever since I have been plagued by the desire to make a vintagey elephant performing the old "standing on the ball" trick. A weird creative craving I know. The only way to rid oneself of such mental nagging is acquiescence and so the above clock was born. I think it will make a sweet baby gift at the next baby shower I attend.

I also used this project as my entry in the Cooking with Cricut embossing challenge. The off white face of the clock is dry embossed with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder and the elephant's ear is embossed with Cuttlebug's Argyle Folder.

RECIPE

Cricut Cartridge: B is for Boy Lite Cartridge
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug: Argyle, Swiss Dots
Ink: VersaMark
Patterned Paper: Stampin' UP!
Bow: Martha Stewart Crafts
Flowers, pearls: Prima
Clock: Clearance bin at Hancock Fabrics
Button: Misc


Thanks for looking,

CarrieAnne
