Baby Shower Saturday and one more no wrap shower but I have a quilt featuring elephants so of course the card needs to match correct! I finally found time to create with the sweet little elephant from Elephant Parade bundle. It is just the cutest little set and another fun baby card set. My days are filled with baby and wedding showers this summer and it is so much fun! Check out the pink gingham plaid behind for the background. The new 12×12 DSP in Gingham Plaid is stunning and I need to start cutting it up! I love it and tons of fun colors in the large pack! I will be featuring more coming soon!
Stampin Blends for the elephant. I did stamp and die cut the baby elephant out and pop him up with a Dimensional on the Stylish Square. I love the new Stylish Shapes die cuts, I can’t seem to make a card with out them! The Basic Pearls are a fun soft touch and the White Crinkle Seam Ribbon was a soft touch for a double bow, I wrapped the ribbon 3 times and fastened under the die cut. I double tied a bow and used a mini glue dot to fasten to the side.
Basic Card think White cardstock cut 8 1/4 x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, Basic Gray cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ and Pink Gingham cut 3 3/4″ x 5″. I used the Stampin Dimensionals to pop the mat off the card base and also the die cut square from Stylish Shapes.
View from the top to see the layers on this fun card. Note Baby Elephant stamped on the envelope and used Gingham Plaid on the envelope flap to complete the card.
Inside the card needs to match too! Gingham strip added to the bottom. I like to add a verse and stamp it on a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of cardstock and then add inside my card. I love the feel of a layered card inside and out.
