Another Birthday Card ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is maybe for a younger birthday ... though lots of people are young at heart and would love this cute little elephant.

It is from a new Spellbinders  Celebration Collection   which has dies as well as   Embossing Folders and Stamps 

This stamp set is called Your Day

The Spellbinders I have used are Classic Hearts and Classic Scalloped Hearts

A simple card with matted and layered panels cut into banner shapes and in different patterns, then wrapped with some Gingham ribbon

I have cut the elephant so that is sits outside the die cut and I have decoupaged up a second layer of the elephant alone

He has a Googly Eye added for fun and I colored the image with Spectrum Noir IG1 IG2 and PP1 in the ear ... and TB1 LV1 PP1 BT for the parcels.

Then I used all the colors and made a dotted background in the heart shape and lined the inside of my base card

How easy can that be and add it to your collection of ready to use cards if it is not needed right away

Don't forget to add your name to the Birthday Give Away   if you would like to win the goodies on offer ... but you will need to become a follower and leave me a comment too

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
