Creating a Quick and Sweet Card Using Stampin'Up! Elephant Parade

Today we're Creating a Quick and Sweet CArd Using Stampin'up! Elephant Parade. Tuesday we had fun using this set for a really fun card...if you missed it check it out here

Here's today's creation...

MintHere's a little closer look...

Mint cu

We used an inset circle to frame our mini elephant in this card. We've included the hitchhiker again because you just can't look at this tyke without smiling ---and smiling is our ultimate goal, right?

The characters are sitting amidst an array of grass and tropical leaves...we used a bone folder to curl the leaves just a bit to enhance our 3D look.  They are nestled right up to the inside of the circle for attaching so they appear to be growing out of the inner circle! What fun.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back next Tuesday and see what we are up to with another new stamp set!
