Good Thursday Mornings peeps!!!
Today's card is made for the sketch on the Stamps and Smiles Blog.
I had been toying with the idea of the elephants on this card for a couple of days. I wanted to place them on circles, with one standing up a bit, and then I saw the sketch and there it was. Three circles, just waiting for my elephants!! How cool is that?
I stamped the elephants from the Animal Stories Stamp Set in brilliant blue and rose red onto some scrap white cardstock and cut them out. I made the circles behind them with my nesties and cuttlebug. I then mounted the elephants onto the circles with some dimensionals. I added a rose red brad above the trunk on one, hoping to look like it was balancing a ball there! LOL!
I used chocolate chip card stock for my base, which is 6-1/2 inches by 7 inches folded in half. I followed it by some old olive and then some DS paper from the Tall Tales DS pack. I used some old olive 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon across the part where the two colors of DS paper meet and tied a "knot" bow. The sentiment comes from the SAB stamp set "Congrats".
I think this would be a cute baby card or a card for a little ones birthday. The sentiment could be changed to anything you would like, Happy Birthday, Welcome Baby.....etc.
Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
