In case you’ve forgotten how cute this elephant is, I’m here to remind you. He’s from A Little Wild stamp set, and isn’t he adorable?

Party Elephant

 

I stamped the elephant in Black ink on dotted, Smoky Slate, Neutrals 6X6 Designer Series Paper. Then, I used his Little Loves die for cutting, and layered him for thickness.

 

The surroundings for my elephant were “cased” from Brian King, who is this week’s designer at Global Design Project.

 

I layered the Balmy Blue Gala Gingham DSP on Thick Whisper White cardstock. Then, I cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, embossed it with the Simple Stripes embossing folder, and layered it on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

 

For the sentiment, I stamped the words, “HAPPY” and BIRTHDAY” in Black ink, and used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting. 

After placing the elephant and sentiment on Mini-Dimensionals, I started working on the party decorations.

The banner was made with The Pick A Pennant stamp set and the Playful Pennants die set.

The stamp set has different designs for stamping the flags, but I stuck with dots, because the elephant said he wanted them to match his hide. The ink colors I used are in my Product List.

 

Speaking of retiring, the main ingredients of this card are not carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Catalog. When looking at my Product List, the first nine items are the ones that are retiring. If you see something you like, order now, while supplies last.

Have a great day, and thank you for shopping with me!
