A Baby Elephant.....

G'day, hope you have had a wonderful week so far.  Today I have a card to share with you.  Our neighbours are new Grandparents again.  A new baby girl has come to join their family.  She is a cutie.  I made this card for Mum, Dad and new big sister.  This one is my own design, I surprised myself.  Enjoy.

I whipped this card together in about half and hour.  As usual, I left it until the last minute to finish and was running around the kitchen muttering to myself.  Yes, I talk to myself during the creating process.   If anyone is around, they usually ask if I am talking to them, no just myself.  Lol.

This is a close up of the baby elephant.  I stamped her with pink ink.  Then curved a 'Welcome' photopolymer stamp onto an acrylic block and stamped it with black ink.  I then stamped the Baby Girl under her, to look like she is walking across it.  I covered her in Glossy Accents and let that dry.  Next I add some Kindy Glitz to the blanket (in real life it was very sparkly) and glued on the rhinestones.  A dot of white gel pen for her eye. 

This photo is a close up of the ribbon and flower.  I tied the bow layered up the flower and glued it to the bow.  Now, I can tie a mean bow, but, I can't do it on the card with the ribbon wrapped around.  I usually tie the bow and then thread the ribbon through the back and tighten up the bow.  Then adhere the ends of the ribbon to the back of the card strip.

If you would like me to do a tutorial on how I do my bows, then just let me know.  I'll see what I can do.  That is it for me today, happy days.

Thanks for popping by and happy creating.
Cheers, Deb
