Hello there, SRM friends! Lorena here. Have you noticed that elephant stamps are trending lately? They're so cute and perfect for different occasions! For baby, of course, but also for wishing a happy birthday, or for a congratulations card.
Today, I am sharing a celebratory card with the lovely elephant from the Baby Jungle stamp set. Love all the darling images from which to choose and also the dot border!
I made a shaped card by die cutting twice a huge tag die from my stash and adhering it together to form the card base. Second, I stamped a green ground for the elephant to stand on, using the polka dot strip from the Doodle Flowers stamp set. I love how cute those polka dots are, and how easy is to stamp a whole background with them in just seconds! Once I had the ground, I added the sky using watercolors. Nothing fancy here, just brushed some blue watercolor on the card :)
The elephant was paper pieced and then accented a bit with a marker. I cut my own speech bubble using a sticker from Sentiment/Thinking of You and layering it on cardstock. Every elephant needs a speech bubble, right? As one last touch, I wanted to make the sentiment pop. It is originally an outlined font, so I filled in the letters with a black alcohol marker.
Of course, the card wouldn't be finished without a touch of baker's twine. I used the Marigold twine here. I also threw in a few die cut stars to increase the celebratory feeling. Thanks for stopping by!
