Twinkle, twinkle, little card...

One of the girls in my stamp club had a baby boy a week or so before Christmas. I made her this card and actually had the foresight to take a picture of it before I mailed it off. (she lives way on the other side of Tucson, about 45-50 miles from me, so I mailed it instead of taking it by)

Anyhow, it is one of the first cards I had actually gotten to stamp in a loooong time. I don't have a current baby set, so I used this little elephant from the "Wild about you" stamp set. I stamped it in Versamark on a piece of "Cutie Pie" designer paper and then used heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds glitter to shine him up a bit. He was stamped again on a small piece of the same designer paper, and then I cut out his ear and mounted it on top of the shiny guy with a dimensional. His eye is a googly eye from Michaels, and I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to color in his toenails.

The card base is Bashful Blue, the other cardstock is Wild Wasabi, as is the double stitched grosgrain ribbon. To finish the card up, I added three "Ice" rhinestone brads, faux stitched around the elephant's panel, and used my Basic Black marker to take the sentiment stamp from "Curvy Verses" and stretch it out as one long curvy line as opposed to the two lines it is originally.
