Elephant Birthday Card



Hello everybody, I hope your day is wonderful!!! I made this card for the Wacky Wednesday Zoo Theme Challenge over at More than Favors. I have always loved Elephants and I am in need of some Birthday cards so that was my project!!! I used a Wide Eyed Kids Stamp set from PKS for the Elephant eyes but I masked off the nose and mouth.
Materials:
Elephant from Zooballo Cricut Cartridge
Stand is from Create-a-Critter Cartridge
Peachy Keen Stamps, Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment PK-450
Sentiment stamp from Mega Mixed Messages, Papertrey Ink
Red Background Paper is from the clearance spot at M's
Twine is the color peapod from the Twinery
Cardstock. pompom ribbon and brads are from my stash of scraps
Black, white and red gel pens
pink chalk for cheeks
I cut the little banner freehand and the banner poll is the bottom of a matchstick

Thank you so much for stopping buy!!! I appreciate all comments!!! Have a fabulous day!!
Long Island Hugs, Cathryn

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
