I am thrilled today to show you the card I made to welcome my first grandson into the world. In case you missed it, I shared Atticus' birth story from a grandmother's perspective in yesterday's post.
My daughter decorated Atticus' nursery with some cute animal photos, one of them being an elephant picture, so I decided to use my "Adorable Elephants" set from MFT. to make Atticus' card. I don't normally buy new stamps anymore, because I have such a huge supply already, and frankly, most new stamps are just remakes of the old ones. But every now and then a new stamp set pulls at my heart strings and I just have to have it. This set has the cutest elephant images in it, and I love how versatile it is as well. The sentiments that come with the set are birthday, thank you, or accomplishment related, but I ended up using it as a baby card by adding a sentiment from another old set.
I stamped the image on a separate piece of card stock and colored it in with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut it using a pair of scissors. The stamp set comes with an optional die cut set, but that cost $26.99. Uh, no thank you. A pair of scissors works just fine. Why do those dies have to cost so much?
I also stamped and fussy cut the butterflies that came with the set. The white ovals were cut with a Cuttlebug machine and Spellbinders dies. Everything was adhered to the white ovals. The elephant I popped up on dimensionals.
For the background I chose some pretty glitter paper from an old DCWV stack. Everything was then adhered to a white card stock base.
Have A Great Day! Amy
