Baby Boy Elephant

Hello fellow crafters,
I just love this little ellie, and as you may remember I used him/her on my 'Welcome Sunny Mae' card of course for a baby girl.

This is for no-one in particular, but I was bursting to use my beautiful new Cheery Lynn lace die, and some paper from a new pack. Pastel ginghams and small spot paper, without distressing,  is often difficult to find, but I found this 12x12 pack by accident. Unfortunately they only had 1 left - I would have bought several.

Even if he is a boy elephant, he is allowed pink-painted toenails, isn't he?

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card. There is no bow as on the front, as I used up the last of my minutely narrow took me ages to thread it through the slots.

Side-on view.

I would like to enter this card in 2 challenges...

  1. Hi Jennifer this is really adorable - perfect for a baby boy .. and I really love your new lace die - I think I want one! I agree that ginghams are so useful ... I used to buy 12 * 12" gingham papers from a local craft shop but they closed down - disaster! However recently I have discovered that several of the online digi paper companies also do ginghams ... and I recently bought 2 gingham downloads from Pink Petticoat - one with colours plus white, and one with colours plus cream (a slightly more vintage look).
