It's a Jungle Out There!

The challenge this week over at Cricut Cardz Challenge Blog is to make a child's birthday card using something you might see in the jungle. I decided to go with the elephant from the Birthday Bash cricut cartridge.

My card base is a 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" Kraft card stock that I scored and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. I used my corner rounder and rounded the two lower corners. I added some aqua and white striped twine. I cut my elephant and all his layers at 3". The polka dot paper is from Echo Park. The other colors are were printed on my Imagine from the Best Friends cartridge. I put some small pieces of foam tape behind his ear so his ear would stand up a little. I also attached the elephant to the card with foam tape. I added some white doodles along the edges of the card and stamped Happy Birthday in Walnut Stain Distress ink. Thanks for visiting.
