Altenew Paper Pieced Ori Kami Elephant for The Color Throwdown #433 with Video

Hello fellow card makers. Today I am sharing the card I made for The Color Throwdown #433. I used Altenew Ori Kami stamp set. I paper pieced the elephant from the set using a layering technique to make it look like it was actually folded with a piece of paper. It adds dimension and interest to a clean and simple card. This technique is for people that love to fussy cut, because there is a lot of fussy cutting with this card. It took me a while to get through it, but it was worth it. I really like how it turned out. Below are some photos of my project, a link to my video on YouTube, and a complete list of supplies. Also, I have a map of the elephant and how many layers make up each part of the elephant.  I also now know that I do not own a "cornflower blue" - Muahahaha! I must SHOP!

  1. That is an awesome origami elephant! Love the layers! And I think the blue is close enough to cornflower. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Color Throwdown this week!

    1. I figured it was close enough, but i'm still going to add to my collection lol
