Baby Elephant Card- NSD #4

Isn't he handsome? I have been working on cards as of late, especially shaped cards as I try to hone my skills. This baby elephant is from New Arrivals a cart that I had to have this is the 2nd time I am using in a year! I bought the cart when we found out our youngest daughter was pregnant. Well little Aiden is now 9 months old and the last time I used this card is for his Christening. The paper and matching ribbon is from Stampin'Up, its a part of this years spring papers.
Here is my Gypsy screen and as you can see it is a SIMPLE design and cut. The next will have a cut an additional elephant and glue to the back... I just think it would look nicer.
The mat, 1 cut with the scraps I had on hand.
And you know I packed it in a little baggie complete with the eyes so it would be ready for a time when I could just sit down and complete.... Yeah today is the day and guess what it took only minutes to cut and five to put together. Note if you do this have all your parts in your baggie and make sure your card base is scored and folds properly so you won't deal with a problem when you finally get to put your kit together.
All I did was assemble the pieces and viola we have a cute little card that you can stamp any sentiment on with plenty of room to write a note if you prefer. This is one of those projects that takes longer to pick out paper than put together.
Isn't he cute? Thanks for spending a couple of minutes with me today. I hope you learned something. Have a great day. Registered & Protected
