Elephant Card for Baby

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a card that I created to welcome a new baby. I covered an elephant from the Elephant Bunting Set with patterned paper and lightly sanded the edges for a soft finish. (There are 8 elephants in the bunting set, so I still have 7 more to embellish!) I painted the chipboard eye with white acrylic paint and then colored the eye lashes black with a marker. To add a bit of whimsy to my design, I attached a google eye to the top of the painted eye piece.

Once the elephant was assembled, I glued it to a card base of layered cardstock. I added a piece of flair with the sentiment "brand new," and made it into a balloon by attaching a piece of string between the flair and the elephant trunk. I finished this card with a red heart for a pop of color.

You can find the pieces I used for this card and more in the Tando Creative Retail Store! We'd love to see what you create for our Card Challenge!
