little elephants for baby

How adorable are these little elephants? You can't go wrong when celebrating baby if you use a cute little elephant!

These cards are unique in that they actually use the same piece of paper even though one is for a boy and one is for a girl. This was an exercise in transforming the same supplies for 2 different purposes.

All of the paper used is from Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection. The pink paper in the background is actually the back side of the plaid paper used below in the boy card. Cut the edge with an apron lace punch for the girl, use a plain scallop punch for the boy.

The same elephant stamp was used. Embossed with brown American Crafts Zing over a Versamark stamp for the boy, and stamped in Martha Stewart pink and embossed in glitter for the girl.

The 'wee little one' is a rub on from Basic Grey. Black from one set, and the pink version from Sugared Olio. A little bit of ribbon tops it off. Double-sided foam tape lifts the elephant up off the card.

Using the exact same supplies can reach two different effects. Enjoy the day!
