Hello friends! Today I'm excited to share another tall and skinny card (3 1/2" x 9") with you! I combined the brand new Mama Elephant Zodiac Rabbit stamps and dies with the Whimsy Alpha Creative Cuts Dies and the Simon Says Stamp Bursting Hearts Stencil for a tall and skinny Valentine's card! I love that the Zodiac Rabbit dies give the option of die cutting the bunny paws separately so that they can "hold" something. In this case the bunnies are holding onto a "x" or "o". Stenciling is always a great way to add interest to an otherwise flat background. Let's get started!

Watch the creation of this tall and skinny xoxo card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The background was created by inking a 3 1/2" x 9" panel with Pinkfresh Studio Coral Reef and Passion Fruit inks. The same ink colors were used to then stencil the Simon Says Stamp Bursting Hearts Stencil over the background for a subtle tone-on-tone effect. The background was splattered with Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust for a shimmery distressed look!
Images from the Mama Elephant Zodiac Rabbit stamps and dies were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink and colored in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
- Rabbits: Mid Gray, Brick Beige, Blender, Pink Haze
- Carrots: Scarlet Red, Pale Orange, Light Green, Yellow Green
- Strawberries: Geranium Red, Light Carmine, Light Green, Yellow Green, Blender
- Balloon: Geranium Red, Light Carmine, Mid Gray
The images were die cut with the coordinating Mama Elephant Zodiac Rabbit dies. The paw dies were used to die cut the images. The rabbits were positioned to appear to be holding the letters and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. The rest of the images were adhered to the background with foam adhesive.
A greeting from the Mama Elephant Zodiac Rabbit stamp set was stamped on smooth white cardstock with Pinkfresh Studio Passion Fruit ink and die cut with a MFT Stamps Skinny Strips die. The phrase was adhered with foam adhesive along the bottom edge of the design.
