Pink Baby Elephant

This was a request from my daughter but not a very difficult one, for once. Simply a new baby girl card, featuring an elephant.

The card was made mainly using my Silhouette electronic cutting machine.  The congratulations in a frame is a Lettering Delights cutting file. The elephant is a three layer cutting file by Miss Kate Cuttables. (I love this company - they give away a free cutting file or digital paper every single day.)

In the Silhouette Studio software, I made three copies of the 'congratulations ' frame and then welded one layer of the elephant to each. Then I cut them out , using grey and two shades of pink cardstock. I glued them on top of each other and added a scrap of patterned paper behind.

  9. So cute! Thanks for playing along at Casual Friday Dies Only Challenge. Thanks for playing along.

  10. What a cute baby card, Marina! And what a lot of work in combining the dies and layering the various colours. The result if perfect. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  11. Yes, an unusually easy theme from your daughter this time:) I like this frame with elephant. It looks to me you really use what's available for you with that Silhouette. I'm going to stick to manual die cuts for now, I'm afraid I'd use even more hours in front of a screen if I'd invest in a Silhouette, but it's really tempting...

  12. What a wonderful baby girl card. One I'm sure your daughter will be delighted with. The layering of the frame and elephant really makes this part of the card stand out. Awesome! Thanks for sharing at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week Marina.
